¿Por qué Microsoft Pretende Hablar por las Pequeñas Empresas en Europa?

Posted in Europe, Microsoft at 3:04 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Bull fight

Resumen: Microsoft se entromete en otro panel de PYMES (Pequeñas Y Medianas Empresas) – en Europa, cuyo objetivo es promover las prácticas hostiles contra las pequeñas y medianas empresas a las que dice “representar”,-incluyendo los monopolios de patentes.

LAST night we wrote about how Microsoft pretends to speak for SMBs in order to derail public policies.

A reader of ours responded to it by writing:

What MS pretends to speak for SMB’s in Europe ? Can be summarized on this:

MS to the SMB’s “let me screw you up! It won’t hurt, on the contrary it’s good for you”

Microsoft dice a las PYMES: “dejenme meterles la yuca no les va a doler, al contrario es bueno para ustedes.”

Here is an expanded Spanish translation provided to us by this reader:

Microsoft tiene un grupo de presión que pretende ser un representante de las pequeñas empresas en la Union Europea. Microsoft no siempre se esconden detrás de grupos de presión cuando lo hace. Ahora que Microsoft ataca duramente Linux con las patentes de software en el extranjero (especialmente en el este de Asia) ASUS, ACER, HTC. El convicto monopolista esta trabajando para ampliar las patentes de software a más continentes como Europa. Sabiendo que las patentes de
software son buenos para los monopolistas como SAP, Microsoft, Siemens, etc. Microsoft necesita para secuestrar sólo la voz de la gran mayoría de las empresas que sufren por las patentes de software (ver firmas en cualquier petición de las patentes de software en Europa). Apenas hay una mejor manera de ello que para garantizar que su propio pueblo están en el panel con una triste historia título (“Las empresas innovadoras – Ir a por todas?”) y se ocupa de “Cómo
cerrar la brecha de financiación para las PYME “.

Richard L. Hudson (Managing Editor, The Wall Street Journal Europe) está invitando a mucha gente esta semana a una mesa redonda reunión celebrada en Bruselas (en el centro de los grupos de presión). Se llevará a cabo en noviembre 17 y los temas incluyen: “¿Por qué es tan difícil de recaudar fondos para la innovación de empresas jóvenes en Europa?”

¿Empresas jóvenes?, ¿eh? ¿Microsoft? Bueno, uno de sus portavoces es Andrew Herbert, Director General del Microsoft Research Cambridge, y Microsoft Distinguido Ingeniero. Hablando en serio, ¿qué Microsoft tiene que hacer con las pequeñas y medianas empresas PYMES? Microsoft ha estado obliterando a las pequeñas empresas durante décadas, mientras que grupos lobbyists presiónan por leyes que inhiben las operaciones de estas empresas.

“Las cartas sobre la mesa”, escribe Hudson incluyen:

“La instauración de un nuevo programa de préstamos y subvenciones a pequeñas empresas innovativas, en estados miembrosy a nivel de Union Europea.”

“Creación de nueva financiación en el Fondo Europeo de Inversiones para estimular más las pequeñas y medianas empresas PYME.”

“Nuevos incentivos fiscales para las PYME innovadoras y sus inversores.”

“Una etiqueta de ‘innovadora compañía’ para ayudar a las PYME nuevas atraer más financiamiento privado.”

“Esta reunión será un debate abierto sobre cómo la política de la Union Europea comunitaria en este ámbito va a evolucionar. Un informe especial ScienceBusiness va resumir y avanzar en la ideas.

Si es la intención de tener un efecto sobre “cómo la política de la Union Europea en este campo va a evolucionar”, entonces ayuda a mostrar cómo grupos de presión continuan marcando la agenda y como Microsoft es parte de ella, empujando la “innovación” (en referencia a las patentes) propaganda “en nombre” de las pequeñas empresas.

Es ridiculo proponer que Microsoft tenga un interes en ayudar a las PYMES, es como decir los estamos ayudando mientras lo ahorcamos. Microsoft dice a las PYMES: “dejenme meterles la yuca no les va a doler, al contrario es bueno para ustedes.” Microsoft, y sus grupos de presion como la Asociacion de Tecnologia “Competitiva”, la BSA y supuestos pro Software Libre individos como Florian Micro Muller son los que estan montando esta mentira. Las pequeñas y medianas empresas de Europa, Latino America y Africa deben estar alerta ante estos intentos de ayuda de parte del convicto monopolista.

Si Microsoft tuviera un genuino interes en las PYMES, entonces deberia deshacerce del los patentes de software que son los que mas perjudican a las pequeñas y medianas empresas. Como esto no va a pasar, las PYMES deben estar alerta y no dejarse “representar” por Microsoft y sus chacales y apoyar formatos libres y la no existencia de software patentes, en Europa y todo el mundo. Ciudadanos de Europa y el mundo, piensen en el future de sus hijos y nietos y no dejen pasar este vil engaño.

DecorWhat Else is New


  1. [Meme] EPO: Pursuing an Eastern and Western District of Europe (for Patent Trolls and Software Patents)

    With the EPO so flagrantly lying and paying for misinformation maybe we should expect Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos to have delusions of grandeur… such as presiding over the Eastern and Western District of Europe, just like Mr. Gilstrap and Mr. Albright (political appointment by Donald Trump, ushering in “the swamp”)



  2. Gemini at 2,000: 86% of Capsules Use Self-Signed Certificate, Just Like the Techrights Web Site (WWW)

    As shown in the charts above (updated an hour ago), the relative share of ‘Linux’ Foundation (LE/LF; same thing, same office) in the capsules’ certificates has decreased over time; more and more (in terms of proportion) capsules choose to sign their own certificate/s; the concept of ‘fake security’ (centralisation and consolidation) should be rejected universally because it leaves nobody safe except plutocrats



  3. [Meme] UPC: Many Lies as Headlines, Almost Exclusively in Publishers Sponsored by EPO and Team UPC to Produce Fake News (Lobbying Through Misinformation)

    Lest we forget that EPO dictators, like Pinky and the Brainless Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, have long littered the EPO's official Web site as well as publishers not directly connected to the EPO (but funded by it) with disinformation about the UPC



  4. EPO as the 'Ministry of Truth' of Team UPC and Special Interests

    The 'Ministry of Truth' of the patent world is turning the EPO's Web site into a propaganda mill, a misinformation farm, and a laughing stock with stock photography



  5. Microsoft 'Delighted' by Windows 11 (Vista 11) Usage, Which is Only 1% Three Months After Official Launch and Six Months After Release Online

    Microsoft boosters such as Bogdan Popa and Mark Hachman work overtime on distraction from the failure Vista 11 has been (the share of Windows continues to fall relative to other platforms)

  7. Don't Fall for Microsoft's Spin That Says Everything is Not Secure and Cannot be Secured

    Microsoft keeps promoting the utterly false concept that everything is not secure and there's nothing that can be done about it (hence, might as well stay with Windows, whose insecurity is even intentional)



  8. At Long Last: 2,000 Known Gemini Capsules!

    The corporate media, looking to appease its major sponsors (such as Web/advertising giants), won't tell you that Gemini Protocol is rising very rapidly; its userbase and the tools available for users are rapidly improving while more and more groups, institutions and individuals set up their own capsule (equivalent of a Web site)

  12. Why the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is Still Just a Fantasy and the UPC's Fake News Mill Merely Discredits the Whole Patent 'Profession'

    Patents and science used to be connected; but now that the patent litigation 'sector' is hijacking patent offices (and even courts in places like Texas) it's trying to shove a Unified Patent Court (UPC) down the EU's throat under the disingenuous cover of "community" or "unity"

  14. Gemini Milestones and Growth (Almost 2,000 Known Gemini Servers Now, 39,000 Pages in Ours)

    The diaspora to Gemini Protocol or the transition to alternative 'webs' is underway; a linearly growing curve suggests that inertia/momentum is still there and we reap the benefits of early adoption of Gemini



  15. [Meme] Get Ready for Unified Patent Court (UPC) to be Taken to Court

    The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent system that’s crafted to empower EPO thugs isn’t legal and isn’t constitutional either; even a thousand fake news 'articles' (deliberate misinformation or disinformation) cannot change the simple facts because CJEU isn’t “trial by media”



  16. The EPO Needs High-Calibre Examiners, Not Politicians Who Pretend to Understand Patents and Science

    Examiners are meant to obstruct fake patents or reject meritless patent applications; why is it that working conditions deteriorate for those who are intellectually equipped to do the job?



  17. Free Software is Greener

    Software Freedom is the only way to properly tackle environmental perils through reuse and recycling; the mainstream media never talks about it because it wants people to "consume" more and more products

  22. Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part XV — Cover-Up and Defamation

    Defamation of one’s victims might be another offence to add to the long list of offences committed by Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot, Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley; attempting to discredit the police report is a new low and can get Mr. Graveley even deeper in trouble (Microsoft protecting him only makes matters worse)



  23. [Meme] Alexander Ramsay and Team UPC Inciting Politicians to Break the Law and Violate Constitutions, Based on Misinformation, Fake News, and Deliberate Lies Wrapped up as 'Studies'

    The EPO‘s law-breaking leadership (Benoît Battistelli, António Campinos and their corrupt cronies), helped by liars who don't enjoy diplomatic immunity, are cooperating to undermine courts across the EU, in effect replacing them with EPO puppets who are patent maximalists (Europe’s equivalents of James Rodney Gilstrap and Alan D Albright, a Donald Trump appointee, in the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, respectively)



  24. Has the Administrative Council Belatedly Realised What Its Job in the European Patent Organisation Really Is?

    The "Mafia" which took over the EPO (the EPO's own workers call it "Mafia") isn't getting its way with a proposal, so it's preventing the states from even voting on it!



  25. [Meme] Team UPC is Celebrating a Pyrrhic Victory

    Pyrrhic victory best describes what's happening at the moment (it’s a lobbying tactic, faking/staging things to help false prophecies be fulfilled, based on hopes and wishes alone), for faking something without bothering to explain the legal basis is going to lead to further escalations and complaints (already impending)
