Make Patents Illegal for the medical industry

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Currently Drug manufacturers / developers and medical equipment manufacturers have the ability to patent any Intellectual Property they create. Ultimately this means they become the sole trader of the said drug or equipment for a certain time period. As a result the price of the treatment is also controlled by the developer / manufacturer.

If patents were banned for any treatment or equipment related to the medical industry then there would be a much more open and competitive market giving advantage to anyone requiring the treatment, giving greater value to the persons most in need.
