Trolling for Trouble

What is the definition for "software patent"?

Ding Ding Ding! That's right, we don't have a legal standard for that term from Congress here in the US..  SCOTUS has said that not all software is eligible for a patent, and so the implications of Congress defining that term are almost more interesting to me than whether trolls should have to cover the legal fees when they lose.

Bill would force patent trolls to pay defendants' legal bills
Legislation would be the first time Congress defines "software patent."
