Some big companies issued patents dealing with obvious features like clicking on a link and having web page content getting updated. We should disallow the patenting of obvious day-to-day programming practices.

Patent policing and litigation preparation cost a lot.
Right now, everybody is stepping on everybody else's patents, but it only comes to litigation when there is an awful lot of money to be made/lost.

Incidentally, there is a tremendous number of agriculture-related patents too, so becoming a farmer will in no way get you off the grid.
