Question by Larry D: If I develop a trading system using excel and market it, would I be violating copyright? What steps do I take?
I’m interested in selling trading systems that use excel. I’ve developed some really solid systems and am considering putting them on the market. Before I do, I am beginning to research the copyright laws pertaining to this sort of venture. Does anyone have any knowledge on this, that would be willing to offer some guidance?

You can sell them and not worry about intelectual property violations, but the real question is are they of any value? Go to the forum at elitetrader.com and post results and see what they say. If you get people wanting them you are in good shape. Odds are they will show you the deficiencies. www.btmaui.com

And the reason you are selling them instead of trading them yourself?
