But I have to say that the post appears to be US centric. Different countries have different laws regarding patents.

But can you can patent the idea/algorithm/techcniques implemented in the software?

BTW, I'm not a lawyer, and not a US citizen either

It depends upon your country's laws, but generally, IME, you can't patent an idea. However you probably can patent an implementation of an idea. The difference is subtle but important. And the difference is also useless in practice because there far too many possible implementations that trying to cover them all is impossible.

Yeah, I actually meant that. Sorry, bad wordings.
As long as the idea doesn't have a proper implementation, it cannot be patented.
