comment Gaining a copyright/Patent
To my knowledge, there isn't a site like this for copyright, but that's probably because it's a simpler area of law, at least in terms of getting the copyright in the first place. This reference might help you out, though.

comment Large System = “miraculous unproven device” + Subsystem1 + SubSystem2 ?= PATENT?
George is correct. Enablement, the principle George described, seems to be something that comes out primarily in litigation, and not in procuring the patent. If I were an inventor facing such a patent, I would consult with a patent litigator to gauge the likelihood that a successful suit could be brought. If there are serious enablement issues, the patent shouldn't give the patentee much leverage.

comment How to patent an idea for computer software?
That's not exactly correct. I don't need a way to make an invention in order to patent it; I only have to describe it in a way that enables someone of ordinary skill in the art to make and use it. We may be using different definitions of "idea." If "idea" means bare functionality, then you are correct. I may have an "idea" for a perpetual motion machine, but I can't patent it because I can't enable it. However, if I have an idea for a jet aircraft which I have no ability to make myself, but I know how to describe it in a way that allows someone else to make it, it's patentable.
