The US patent system is long overdue for reform, says health justice advocate Priti Krishtel. As it stands, the system bars the public from influencing policies and actions that directly affect individuals and even put human lives at risk. In a candid TED Talk, Krishtel explains which reforms would improve and modernize the patent system and protect basic human rights. “This is not about scientists versus activists, or invention versus protection,” explains Krishtel, the daughter of a pharmaceutical scientist. “This is about people, our quest to invent and our right to live.”
