Subject to certain Subroutine Technology (as defined) all intellectual property rights in and to the game shall belong to the claimant. The claimant shall have an exclusive, irrevocable, royalty free licence to exploit and enhance the Subroutine Technology for the purposes of or in connection with the development and exploitation of the game.

The protectable subject-matter may not therefore be the computer programme of its subroutines, as sometimes implied by statutes, and academic literature. Rather, the core of the patentable invention often consists of algorithms, understood broadly, along with their practical implementation couched (to obtain the grant and maximum protection) in terms of 'systems', 'methods', 'devices', 'products' and the like.

A routine or subroutine also referred to as a function, procedure, and subprogram, is a portion of code that may be called and executed anywhere in a program. For example, a routine may be used to save a file or display the time. Instead of writing the code each time these commonly performed tasks are needed, routines are created and called when these tasks need to be performed. Below is a basic example of a Perl subroutine.
