Agreed. I think any company that is against software patents should 
jointly write a letter to Congress stating that if software patents 
aren't repealed in one year they're pulling out of the US market 
completely. Would be interesting to see the government's reaction if 
Google stopped doing business here.

The exploitation and abuse of software patents is getting so crazy now 
they even recently ran a story on NPR (National Public Radio) about it:
