proprietary software

Proprietary software is software with restrictions on using, copying and modifying as enforced by the proprietor. Restrictions on use, modification and copying are sought by either legal or technical means and sometimes both. Technical means include releasing machine-readable binaries to users and withholding the human-readable source code. Legal means can involve software licensing, copyright, and patent law.
