Why don't they use their cash reserves to buy some proper patent legislation? Mustn't be too hard, I assume.

Perhaps Google is still idealistic enough to think they shouldn't purchase legislators? I wonder how long that will last.
Maybe they'll put the $3 billion they saved by losing the auction towards lobbying to remove software patents. It'll be nice when adding "on a computer" or "on the internet" to common sense no longer awards a patent.
