Summary:
Law doesn't get changed or strengthened unless someone challenges it, rather than settling out-of-court. A mistake by a court in the U.S. - not reading fully a ruling by a higher court - resulted some twenty years ago in Software Patents becoming valid. It will take someone else to stand up in court and force a review of that mistaken ruling - which ignored the higher court's ruling that software can only be included in a patent if it is part of a physical (hardware) device.
