Summary:
Narrow the scope of patentable processes to exclude much or all of software patents. This is the most controversial suggestion, and does have real costs, in that it may discourage either investment in software R&D or sharing of knowledge (i.e., more innovation will be protected as trade secrets). But I suspect that the benefits outweigh the costs.
