I'm not sure such an extreme measure is necessary. Further careful thought is necessary before reform. This extreme measure will stifle innovation. Has anyone really thought through the results of this action?

My quick thought is that the current patent system is broken, and no longer is acting for the public good. You can head over to the White House and sign a petition to direct the patent office to cease issuing software patents.  It is a small, probably symbolic act, but a start.

I would like to see some sort of statute of limitations and that the company launching the lawsuits at least is attempting to use the technology of the patent, not just an LLC employing a bunch of lawyers extorting money from successful businesses.  It would also be nice if the patents involved were part of any standards body, be nullified or minimized.
