While the US is looking at various patent reforms that seem likely to make the system much worse, over in the UK they seem to have a slightly better understanding of the issue -- admitting that they're worried that too many "trivial" or "obvious" patents are being granted. The patent office is asking for comments as they try to think about reform. Of course, the existing patent infrastructure (lots of patent lawyers, basically) are probably likely to try to push in the other direction.
