According to <Intellectual Property Protection for Computer Software>:
Copyrights in Detail The copyright laws are found in Title 17 of the United States Code, which is based on the Constitutional power of Congress "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors...the exclusive Right to their... Writings...."[4, part 2] In this context, copyright law doesn't protect ideas, only the ways in which they are expressed. The 1909 Copyright Act was inadequate for addressing computer software, yet the Copyright Office chose to accept computer programs as literary works beginning in 1964 [6, p. 35] The present Copyright Act was passed in 1976 and became effective January 1, 1978. The question of copyrightability of software programs was temporarily put off, to be settled by the National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works. This finally led to the Computer Software Copyright Act of 1980, amending the 1976 law so it explicitly applies to computer programs. [6, p.35]
If a software program was originally created by the author and not copied from someone else, and it is stable enough to be stored in any way, then it was automatically protected by copyright law since the moment of its creation.
