Mark Cuban's Very Good Idea

Mark Cuban has a plan for fixing the patent mess that we're in:
1. End software patents (but keep software copyright)
2. End process patents
3. Limit potential damages from "non-practicing entities" (i.e. patent trolls)

This is a really, really good idea. We need to cut back on the risk of lawsuits and open up innovation, and this is a fast, appropriate way to do it.
