You seem to have a gap in your education in regard to copyrights vs patents vs trade secrets. The ideas contained in a copyrighted work are not protected. So how many ways can an idea be expressed in software and can any of them be considered an artistic work for the purposes of copyright?

The “Abstraction, Filtration, Comparison” test has dealt a severe blow to infringement claims for non-literal elements of software programs.
