A more realistic fix is: Eliminate the patent system. Reforming it is a fool's errand. There is not a lot than can be done.
We would all be better off in the long run if patents didn't exist. The only possible exception I can see is pharmaceuticals, where a patent is perhaps a reasonable tradeoff for years of government required tests.
