[ES] David Kappos (Jefe USPTO) Se Niega a Ser Parte del Fiasco Tratado ACTA, No Responde

(ODF | PDF | English (original))

Resumen: Karel de Gucht, current European Commissioner for Trade y la USPTO (Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos) continuan con su carrera por el ACTA, que es un enemigo de la libertad del software, así como muchas otras libertades entre ellas la soberanía de los pueblos.

La semana pasada mencionamos Karel de Gucht[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karel_de_Gucht], comisario europeo de Comercio, quien cínicamente sostiene falsamente que el ACTA (Tratado Comercial de Lucha contra la Falsificación) no dañará el software libre[http://twitter.com/FFII/statuses/5409097092440064]. Este hombre se convirtió en otro enemigo de los intereses de Europa por la elección para impulsar la iniciativa de EE.UU. conocido como ACTA (que es inconstitucional[http://techrights.org/2009/08/27/hacking-basic-freedoms/]). Su propósito es ayudar a mega-corporaciones ganar más poder sobre la sociedad en todo el mundo. El deslizamiento de la lengua de Karel ha causado Techdirt afirmar que[http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20101117/12403111915/as-us-insists-acta-is-not-a-treaty-eu-trade-commissioner-admits-it-s-a-treaty.shtml]:

Los EE.UU. Insiste ACTA no es un Tratado, el Comisario Europeo de Comercio, admite que es un Tratado

“Ya hemos publicado acerca de David Kappos[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Kappos] (Subsecretario de Comercio para la Propiedad Intelectual y Director de la Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos) no “da respuesta a las preguntas de la legalidad sobre el ACTA, pero en el fondo de la cobertura de KEI acerca de esta historia hay otro punto interesante. ACTA partidarios en los EE.UU. se han doblado hacia atrás para insistir en que el ACTA no es un tratado. Toda vez que alguien la menciona como un tratado en los comentarios aquí, uno de los partidarios del ACTA entre nuestros lectores rápidamente va amonestar por no tener ni idea de la ley y se insiste en que esto no es nada más que un “ACUERDO EJECUTIVO”, que no es necesario la aprobación del Senado. Es uno de los puntos favoritos de conversaciónde los partidarios del ACTA. Por supuesto, hay algunos serias interrogantes constitucionales al respecto.

Sin embargo, mucho más revelador es que muchos partidarios ACTA absolutamente admiten que es un tratado. Ya Hemos señalado que la Alianza Empresarial de Software (BSA[http://www.bsa.org/country/BSA%20and%20Members/Our%20Members.aspx]) lo hizo hace unas semanas (y también se afirmaba falsamente que ya había sido firmado por 37 países).”

Hola, Kappos, me escuchas? Et tu, Alianza Empresarial de Software BSA?

Observe el papel desempeñado por la USPTO (Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos) allí. Kappos no sirve de nada[http://techrights.org/2010/03/06/uspto-makes-things-worse/] a causa de sus opiniones sobre el status quo. Los créditos debe ir al brillante Bernard Sanders, cuyas acciones se destacan por KEI en este momento[http://keionline.org/node/1022]:

Carta No-Respondida por David Kappos de la USPTO a los senadores Sanders y Brown Relativa a la Coherencia de ACTA con la Legislación de los EE.UU.

“En un 19 de octubre 2010, los senadores Bernard Sanders (I-VT) y Sherrod Brown (D-OH) escribió a David Kappos, el Director de la USPTO, solicitando una evaluación de los conflictos entre el texto del ACTA octubre 2010, y la ley de EE.UU. . (Que se adjunta aquí).”

KEI también tiene este nuevo documento [http://keionline.org/sites/default/files/ep-prizes-jamie-18nov2010.pdf][PDF] titulado “Innovación Premios Incentivos para reducir los costos, Mejorar la productividad y ampliar el acceso”. Es de hace dos días y el objetivo es Europa. KEI – como nosotros – desea ayudar a los estadounidenses[http://techrights.org/2010/11/20/esp-america-pov/]. Pero lo que es bueno para los conglomerados de América, por ejemplo, no es necesariamente bueno para los ciudadanos de los Estados Unidos. Vamos a exponer a los “buitres” (no las águilas) de la sociedad y exponer sus maliciosa agenda, de auto-servicio que la USPTO (Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos) contribuye a perpetuar . La USPTO – como grupo de presión – está ahí para servir a los abogados contraproducentemente y a las grandes corporaciones, por lo que en los EE.UU. “la USPTO” puede ser tan engañosa como en “Nueva Zelanda” la “NZICT” (que aboga por los intereses que son opuestos a Nueva Zelanda)[http://techrights.org/2010/08/25/nzict-and-microsoft-gold-partner/].


Eduardo Landaveri adds (in English):

Another chapter on the fight against software patents.

As I said before India && Europe efforts against software patents are not only their hope for a better future for themselves && their children but the Latin American && African countries hope for a better future. Free from digital colonialism.

“C’mon India && Europe, do not give up against these corporations, give yourselves && to us the gift of Freedom”

“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”
- Thomas Paine

Or in Spanish:

Como he dicho antes los esfuerzos de India Europa ycontra las patentes de software no son sólo la esperanza de un futuro mejor para ellos y sus hijos, sin lo la esperanza de un futuro mejor para los paises de América Latina y Africano. Libres de colonialismo digital.

“Vamos, India y Europa, no se dén por vencido en contra de estas corporaciones, dense a sí mismos y a nosotros el regalo de la libertad”

“Los que esperan cosechar las bendiciones de la libertad deben, como hombres, sufren la fatiga de apoyarla.”
- Thomas Paine

Eduardo’s translations hopefully broaden the reach of this information.

    Before we proceed to other countries in the region, let’s not forget or let’s immortalise the role played by Croatia in the EPO (memes are memorable)



  4. Gangster Culture in the EPO

    The EPO‘s Administrative Council was gamed by a gangster from Croatia; today we start the segment of the series which deals with the Balkan region



  5. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XXI: The Balkan League – The Doyen and His “Protégée”

    The EPO‘s circle of corruption in the Balkan region will be the focus of today’s (and upcoming) coverage, showing some of the controversial enablers of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, two deeply corrupt French officials who rapidly drive the Office into the ground for personal gain (at Europe’s expense!)

    Gemini protocol is becoming a widely adopted de facto standard for many who want to de-clutter the Internet by moving away from the World Wide Web and HTML (nowadays plagued by JavaScript, CSS, and many bloated frameworks that spy)



  11. Unlawful Regimes Even Hungary and Poland Would Envy

    There’s plenty of news reports about Polish and Hungarian heads of states violating human rights, but never can one find criticism of the EPO’s management doing the same (the mainstream avoids this subject altogether); today we examine how that area of Europe voted on the illegal "Strike Regulations" of Benoît Battistelli



  12. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XX: The Visegrád Group

    The EPO‘s unlawful “Strike Regulations” (which helped Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos illegally crush or repress EPO staff) were supported by only one among 4 Visegrád delegates



  13. [Meme] IBM Has Paid ZDNet to Troll the Community

    Over the past few weeks ZDNet has constantly published courses with the word "master" in their headlines (we caught several examples; a few are shown above); years ago this was common, also in relation to IBM itself; clearly IBM thinks that the word is racially sensitive and offensive only when it's not IBM using the word and nowadays IBM pays ZDNet — sometimes proxying through the Linux Foundation — to relay this self-contradictory message whose objective is to shame programmers, Free software communities etc. (through guilt they can leverage more power and resort to projection tactics, sometimes outright slander which distracts)



  14. [Meme] ILO Designed to Fail: EPO Presidents Cannot be Held Accountable If ILOAT Takes Almost a Decade to Issue a Simple Ruling

    The recent ILOAT ruling (a trivial no-brainer) inadvertently reminds one of the severe weaknesses of ILOAT; what good is a system of accountability that issues rulings on decisions that are barely relevant anymore (or too late to correct)?

  18. [Meme] Speaking the Same Language

    Language inside the EPO is misleading. Francophones Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos casually misuse the word “social”.



  19. António Campinos Thinks Salary Reductions Months Before He Leaves is “Exceptional Social Gesture”

    Just as Benoît Battistelli had a profound misunderstanding of the concept of “social democracy” his mate seems to completely misunderstand what a “social gesture” is (should have asked his father)

  24. 'Satellite States' of EPO Autocrats

    Today we look more closely at how Baltic states were rendered 'voting fodder' by large European states, looking to rubber-stamp new and oppressive measures which disempower the masses



  25. [Meme] Don't Mention 'Brexit' to Team UPC

    It seems perfectly clear that UPC cannot start, contrary to what the EPO‘s António Campinos told the Council last week (lying, as usual) and what the EPO insinuates in Twitter; in fact, a legal challenge to this should be almost trivial



  26. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part IXX: The Baltic States

    How unlawful EPO rules were unsurprisingly supported by Benoît Battistelli‘s friends in Baltic states; António Campinos maintained those same unlawful rules and Baltic connections, in effect liaising with offices known for their corruption (convicted officials, too; they did not have diplomatic immunity, unlike Battistelli and Campinos)

  28. How Oppressive Governments and Web Monopolists Might Try to Discourage Adoption of Internet Protocols Like Gemini

    Popular movements and even some courageous publications have long been subverted by demonisation tactics, splits along unrelated grounds (such as controversial politics) and — failing that — technical sabotage and censorship; one must familiarise oneself with commonly-recurring themes of social control by altercation



  29. [Meme] Strike Triangulations, Reception Issues

    Financial strangulations for Benoît Battistelli‘s unlawful “Strike Regulations”? The EPO will come to regret 2013…



  30. [Meme] Is Saying “No!” to Unlawful Proposals Considered “Impolite”?

    A ‘toxic mix’ of enablers and cowards (who won’t vote negatively on EPO proposals which they know to be unlawful) can serve to show that the EPO isn’t a “social democracy” as Benoît Battistelli liked to call it; it’s just a dictatorship, currently run by the son of a person who actually fought dictatorship
