ES: Cuando Microsoft Dice Reforma de Patentes Significa Deformación de Patentes

Resumen: Microsoft está presionando para cambios en la ley de patentes, pero no el tipo de cambios que pueden dañar a los abusos de su monopolio.

La palabra “reforma” implica un cambio, pero este cambio no tiene por qué ser un hecho positivo (sólo por consenso). Las leyes son subjetivas y cambian todo el tiempo para adaptarse mejor a los intereses de alguien, o simplemente ir en detrimento de aquellos cuya función es visto como poco éticas o demasiado competitivo para aquellos en el poder.

Microsoft tiene un mensaje sobre la “reforma de patentes[http://blogs.technet.com/b/microsoft_on_the_issues/archive/2011/02/02/time-to-act-on-patent-reform.aspx]” – un mensaje que ya es repitido por la “prensa de Microsoft[http://redmondmag.com/articles/2011/02/02/microsoft-tells-congress-to-reform-us-patent-laws.aspx], en concreto por el refuerzo de Microsoft Kurt Mackie, (otro ejemplo existe[http://www.zdnet.com.au/microsoft-outs-patent-reform-goals-339308972.htm], como otros refuerzos de Microsoft/blogs[http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-20030546-75.html] cubiertos sin control).

Lamentablemente, todo esto es que podríamos encontrar en Google Noticias. Es sólo una rutina de relaciones públicas y en respuesta a la entrada en el blog de Microsoft, Stefano Maffulli escribió[http://twitter.com/smaffulli/statuses/33298771483963392]:

“Microsoft promueve la subida de las tasas para presentar las patentes: sólo los más ricos deben inventores? Típico.

Los cabildeos de Microsoft (de sus dos extorsionistas de patentes) llegan en un momento interesante porque Patrick Leahy et al. ha propuesto la Ley de Reforma de Patentes de 2011 [1[http://techrights.org/2011/02/02/reform-vs-biden-mentality/], 2[http://techrights.org/2011/01/31/united-states-patent-reform/]]. Microsoft quiere asegurarse de que esta reforma sólo beneficie a Microsoft, no a el público de los Estados Unidos o a la comunidad internacional. Reuters tiene este nuevo artículo sobre la reforma de las patentes[http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/02/03/us-congress-patent-idUSTRE7120OW20110203]:

Veteranos legisladores de EE.UU. estan una vez más planificando la reforma del sistema de patentes para tratar de eliminar los premios enormes por daños, un tema maduro para la legislación después de recientes decisiones judiciales impugnaron métodos de cálculo.

Lo que Microsoft quiere no es el fin de las patentes de software o el final de su extorsión de patentes propias. Sólo quiere que los elementos que perjudican a Microsoft se debiliten[http://techrights.org/2011/01/18/i4i-and-uniloc-vs-msft/], por lo que los autores que sugieren que Microsoft replantea su agresión de patentes no están simplemente prestando atención lo suficientemente cerca. Microsoft es una parte importante de la crisis de patentes (extorsión y demasiadas demandas), por lo que la reforma que ansía sólo debilitaría a los trolls de patentes, pero no a los MONOPOLISTAS.

  1. [Meme] António Campinos and Socialist Posturing

    Staff of the EPO isn’t as gullible as António Campinos needs it to be



  2. António Campinos as EPO President is Considered Worse Than Benoît Battistelli (in Some Regards) After 3.5 Years in Europe's Second-Largest Institution

    The EPO's demise at the hands of people who don't understand patents and don't care what the EPO exists for is a real crisis which European media is unwilling to even speak about; today we share some internal publications and comment on them



  3. Media Coverage for Sale

    Today we're highlighting a couple of new examples (there are many other examples which can be found any day of the year) demonstrating that the World Wide Web is like a corporate spamfarm in "news" clothing

  8. The EPO's “Gender Awareness Report”

    There’s a new document with remarks by the EPO’s staff representatives and it concerns opportunities for women at the EPO — a longstanding issue

  10. EPO Staff Committee Compares the Tactics of António Campinos to Benoît Battistelli's

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) of the EPO talks about EPO President António Campinos, arguing that “he seems to subscribe to the Manichean view, introduced by Mr Battistelli…”



  11. Prof. Thomas Jaeger in GRUR: Unified Patent Court (UPC) “Incompatible With EU Law“

    The truth remains unquestionable and the law remains unchanged; Team UPC is living in another universe, unable to accept that what it is scheming will inevitably face high-level legal challenges (shall that become necessary) and it will lose because the facts are all still the same

  13. EPO Cannot and Will Not Self-Regulate

    The term financialisation helps describe some of the activities of the EPO in recent years; see Wikipedia on financialisation below



  14. [Meme] Germany's Licence to Break the Law

    Remember that the young Campinos asked dad for his immunity after he had gotten drunk and crashed the car; maybe the EPO should stop giving diplomatic immunity to people, seeing what criminals (e.g. Benoît Battistelli) this attracts; the German government is destroying its image (and the EU’s) by fostering such corruption, wrongly believing that it’s worth it because of Eurozone domination for patents/litigation



  15. EPO Dislikes Science and Scientists

    The EPO's management has become like a corrupt political party with blind faith in money and monopolies (or monopoly money); it has lost sight of its original goals and at this moment it serves to exacerbate an awful pandemic, as the video above explains

  20. [Meme] EPO Administrative Council Believing EPO-Bribed 'Media' (IAM Still Shilling and Lying for Cash)

    IAM continues to do what brings money from EPO management and Team UPC, never mind if it is being disputed by the patent examiners themselves



  21. The EPO's Mythical “Gap” Has Been Found and It's Bonuses for People Who Use Pure Fiction to Steal From Patent Examiners

    The phony president who has the audacity to claim there's a budget gap is issuing millions of euros for his enablers to enjoy; weeks ahead of the next meeting of national delegates the Central Staff Committee (CSC) tells them: "Events show that the delegations’ concerns about functional allowances have materialised. The lack of transparency and inflation of the budget envelope gives rise to the suspicion that high management is pursuing a policy of self-service at the expense of EPO staff, which is difficult to reconcile with the Office’s claimed cost-saving policy, and to the detriment of the whole Organisation."

  25. Freenode.net Becomes a 'Reddit Clone' and Freenode IRC is Back to Old Configurations After Flushing Down Decades' Worth of User/Channel Data and Locking/Shutting Out Longtime Users

    Freenode is having another go; after “chits” and “jobs” (among many other ideas) have clearly failed, and following the change of daemon (resulting in massive loss of data and even security issues associated with impersonation) as well as pointless rebrand as “Joseon”, the domain Freenode.net becomes something completely different and the IRC network reopens to all



  26. Jack Dorsey's Decision is a Wake-up Call: Social Control Media is Just a Toxic Bubble

    The state of the World Wide Web (reliability, preservation, accessibility, compatibility etc.) was worsened a lot more than a decade ago; with social control media that’s nowadays just a pile of JavaScript programs we’re basically seeing the Web gradually turning into another Adobe Flash (but this time they tell us it’s a “standard”), exacerbating an already-oversized ‘bubble economy’ where companies operate at a loss while claiming to be worth hundreds of billions (USD) and generally serve imperialistic objectives by means of manipulation like surveillance, selective curation, and censorship
