Wired Article: The Patent System’s Not Broken - Responses?

This morning I stumbled upon a Wired opinion article about patent reform and how we don't really need it. I was wondering if anyone had something to add , as The Verge, largely because of one Nilay Patel, has been very vocal about the issues that the patent system faces in the age of software and a more mature technology sector. I think the piece has some issues in that the examples it gives aren't necessarily analogous to today's issues, but nonetheless it is an interesting if not polarizing read.
