Computer software is an object protected by Vietnamese law on copyright. Software is protected from the moment it is created in a certain material form and original. Originality means that the software was created by the author.

In the event of a dispute, the computer software copyright registration certificate is the most persuasive evidence of the author's ownership over other parties. At the same time, the author is entitled to have the right to exploit and use this computer software.
