Is it too easy to get a patent in the USA?

The way you have worded the question and comments, it sounds like you think that patents are given out without any true planning or review. I can promise you that patents aren’t just given away like gifts—there has to be a true uniqueness whether it’s in concept or design. 

And you can almost guarantee that if a person is seeking a software patent, they are in for an uphill battle. It’s not impossible to get a software patent, it’s just pretty difficult. One of the primary reasons being that software has a short shelf life—the minute it’s patented slight changes and adjustments can make it obsolete in a matter of a few short years.

At any rate, you should definitely do your homework before you apply for any type of patent. If you need some help with that, LawTrades is a good resource.
