My impression is that patent trolling as just as bad outside software, so I see no reason to have it there either. Patents have consistently done the oposite of what they where supposed to do. I thinkt he fundamental idea is broken and cannot be fixed.

Intellectual property should be protected by copyright. If copyright does not cover something, then I don't think it should be protected.
