Summary:
@Jeff Money of course, if US software patents became enforceable in the EU, US software companies could look forward to a royalty bonanza and power over their European rivals. As the patent regime in Europe is still largely sane, most European software companies do not have a software patent portfolio to fight back with. Also the US is a large exporter of IP in general, making it the state departments default attitude that more US style IP law should be fought for at every turn.
