Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

Problem is that software "inventions" staggeringly lack the inventive step.

I would agree to software patents under one* major provision - either patents or copyrights. Need be, the inventor could choose one or the other. But the patent should have the implementation source code in public domain.

* - And obviously enforcement of state of the art, inventive step(see why EPO said no to 1Click), public disclosure and prior art.
