Yup. It's not even hard, really - in fact the process is well underway. Move the software development to countries like China where software patents are largely ignored and only buy patents from other companies for the products which must be exported to US.
Of course it's hard problem (you should first make sure US is forbidden from just printing money) but it goes along quite well. If nothing changes then I think in about 15-20 years time software development in US will be history and software patents will not bother anyone.
Of course there are small probability that US congress will see the forest for the trees, but the probability is small indeed: while patents are crippling for the industry then are actually beneficent for individual companies.
