"Patents, when properly structured, may expand the options and
well-being of all people by making new possibilities available. Yet,
they also give patent-holders the power to deny access to others,
thereby limiting or denying the public’s right of participation to
science and culture. The human rights perspective demands that patents
do not extend so far as to interfere with individuals' dignity and
well-being. Where patent rights and human rights are in conflict, human
rights must prevail."
Looks like a very interesting report.
