Patents are necessary but I agree with others who have noted that the current system is way too permissive. It's a huge problem in software as well, where even things as stupid as One-Click shopping are patented.

Hopefully the more widely publicized cases like this that there are, the more impetus there will be for revisiting the patent system.
