New Zealand just banned software patents (as such - there are some loopholes):

The relevant clause of the patent bill actually states that a computer program is "not an invention." Some have suggested that was a way to get around the wording of the TRIPS intellectual property treaty, which requires patents to be "available for any inventions, whether products or processes, in all fields of technology."

Now, if only we could get DC to find this much of a clue....
