    Can cPanel / Plesk / DirectAdmin be patented?

    Hello guys

    I'm sorta interested in knowing the patent rights.

    Is it possible that cPanel / Plesk / DA file for patency for their product (control panel)?

    Wouldn't copyright laws cover that since everything is code?

    Its sad to say but I think at this point lawyers/money determine what that covers more then anything currently on the books. Who can keep the case alive and drain the others cost the longest etc is a common tactic.

    Don't know regarding directadmin.

    Cpanel and Plesk have their own patents, since there are major and widely used control panels. You need to contact them and get the details of their patency.

    Thank you.
