[From FFII] The Paris based Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in which the world's wealthier countries are members, has issued a report on problems with the patent system.

The report calls for "closer scrutiny by science, technology and innovation policy makers" of patent regimes, warning that governments "must remain vigilant in ensuring that patenting does not unnecessarily hinder access to knowledge, reduce incentives to disseminate knowledge, or impede follow-on innovation".
