What do you mean by protect? In the UK software is automatically protected by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Your friend may find this link useful http//www.is4profit.com/busadvice/copyright/basic_copyright_facts/4_claiming_enforcing_copyright.htm
His only problem may be if he was working as an employee writing software when he produced this software. (In this case the copyright may belong to his employer).
