Resumen: Los monopolios están protegidos por leyes controvertidas en su mayoría con el apoyo de super-ricos empresarios y los líderes que ellos ayudan a nombrar.

GRACIAS a Benjamin Henrion (FFII – Fundación para una Infraestructura de Información Libre) nos enteramos de que la “EPO (Oficina Europea de Patentes) concedió la patente sobre la barra de progreso a Apple, ahora dice que su concesión de patentes es de alta calidad” (que nos enlaza a esta página de la EPO, que dice: “Los líderes del G8 apoyan un sistema de “calidad” de patentes”)[http://blog.epo.org/uncategorized/g8-leaders-support-a-quality-patent-system/].

Como hemos explicado anteriormente esta semana, para referirnos al problema de las patentes como un problema de “calidad” en vez de alcance es desviar la atención del verdadero problema que la EPO también ha estado teniendo. Es por eso que no tienen en cuenta el movimiento Wilcox [1[http://techrights.org/2011/06/01/wilcox-should-learn-from-eu_es/], 2[http://techrights.org/2011/06/16/transporting-software-patents-to-eu_es/], 3[http://techrights.org/2011/06/01/nyls-idea-re-swpats-in-uk_es/], 4[http://techrights.org/2011/06/01/patent-mopolies-in-the-eu_es/], 5[http://techrights.org/2011/06/15/software-monopolies-in-fr-and-uk_es/]] que consideramos uno ingenuo. Sólo va a ayudar a validar algunas patentes de software, incluyendo algunos de Microsoft, tales como FAT[http://techrights.org/2011/06/15/software-monopolies-in-fr-and-uk_es/].

“Excepto por el escritorio de GNU/Linux compañías como Novell/SUSE/Attachmate y Xandros, aquellos que pagan a Microsoft por Linux son Turbolinux LG, Fuji Xerox, Brother, Melco, Samsung, Kyocera Mita, de IO Data, y HTC.”El uso de la extorsión con patentes de software, Microsoft ha sido más exitoso en Asia. A excepción del escritorio de GNU/Linux compañías como Novell / SUSE / Attachmate y Xandros, aquellos que pagan a Microsoft por Linux son Turbolinux LG, Fuji Xerox, Brother, Melco, Samsung, Kyocera Mita, de IO Data, y HTC. También lo hace Amazon (por el servidor y embebidos en Kindle), que decidió pagar su estado vecino de Microsoft después de que muchos de sus nuevos gerentes fueron nombrados por Microsoft Corp.

Lo que pasa en Washington (el estado y el Distrito Federal) tiene mucha importancia en este momento porque Bill Gates y su compadre Nathan van de la manito desde el estado de DC para cabildear mucho en favor de las patentes[http://techrights.org/2011/06/16/defenceless-lobbying/] (Gates, por su parte, se reune con los líderes del G8, dar dinero de los contribuyentes a los titulares de patentes el las que él mismo invierte[http://techrights.org/2010/06/30/instructions-to-stephen-harper/], como hemos explicado antes[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Gates_Foundation_Critique]). No se distraiga por la Ley de los Estados Unidos Inventa. Todo esto es una falsa “reforma” que se asemeja a lo que vemos en Europa[http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0611/57029.html] – un enfoque que está todo mal:

La Ley América Inventa fomenta la innovación y fomenta la creación de empleos. Cambia el nivel de aprobación de la patente del “primer inventor” al “primero que registra”.

Suena como que es BUENO PARA LOS EMPRESARIOS,NO PARA LOS CIENTIFICOS. Así que, por supuesto, los políticos podrían apoyar eso. Ellos saben de donde las contribuciones vienen.

La patente de Nathan (el más grande troll de patentes del mundo y ex director de tecnología Microsoft) sigue ACOSANDO a los competidores Microsoft y Groklaw se esfuerza por derribar esta patente por la cooperación dentro de la comunidad[http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=2011061608115990]:

Como hemos señalado en el artículo de ayer, uno de los desarrolladores de formas más eficaces (y cualquier otra persona que cree Lodsys es desmesurado) se puede responder mediante la identificación de previas técnicas que sean relevante para las invenciones reivindicadas por Lodsys. Lodsys ha tomado la posición que sus reivindicaciones son muy amplias, y el problema con esa posición, ya que aprender, es que abre las anchas puertas de previas técnicas que va a derrumbar los reclamos generales. Y ahí es donde entras tú.

Más de las últimas noticias al respecto se puede encontrar en los medios de comunicación corporativos, que a diferencia de la cobertura de las fuentes contraria TechEye[http://www.techeye.net/business/lodsys-patents-under-attack] y otros, no van lo suficientemente lejos. Pretende informar en lugar de promover, pero que termina la elección de la cobardía, no sólo el conformismo.

Lo que más alentador es que los reguladores han comenzado por lo menos un paso adelante para abordar los aspectos anticompetitivos de las patentes, a pesar de que no cumplen los objetivos reales[http://techrights.org/2011/04/27/bn-and-changing-the-patent-system/] y Microsofnt les empuja hacia falsos[http://techrights.org/2011/06/18/taxing-competitors-with-moles_es/]. Para citar recientemente noticias [1[http://www.itbusinessedge.com/cm/blogs/bentley/department-of-justice-keeping-close-watch-on-nortel-patent-auction/?cs=47283], 2[http://www.zdnetasia.com/report-us-doj-probing-bids-for-nortel-patents-62300594.htm]], donde se menciona CPTLN:

Las patentes se han convertido en una herramienta cada vez más potente en tecnología, como las pequeñas empresas demandan a los más grandes en caso de infracción, y las grandes empresas pagan caro para acumular patentes para protegerse de futuros litigios. En abril, el Departamento de Justicia obligó a un grupo de empresas que comprarían las patentes de Novell, incluyendo Apple y Microsoft, a licenciar en lugar de comprar algunas de las 882 patentes y solicitudes de patentes sobre las preocupaciones sobre el impacto en el software de código abierto.

Microsoft también ha estado aplastando empresas por las patentes como las que se puso en CPTLN. Hemos escrito sobre el uso de Microsoft de Nokia, el otro día[http://techrights.org/2011/06/18/taxing-competitors-with-moles_es/]. “Estas empresas se han convertido esencialmente en Novell”, escribe Sarah Lacy[http://techcrunch.com/2011/06/13/yawn-how-did-big-tech-companies-turned-into-big-boring-banks/] en relación con este tipo de barrido de las empresas más pequeñas (no necesariamente sus patentes). ¿Quién en la Tierra apoyaría este tipo de patentes que no sean las multinacionales y los políticos que sirven a sus intereses? La gente debe ponerse de pie y denunciarlas.

  1. 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)

  5. 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"

    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



  8. [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”



  9. 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?

    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

  15. 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)



  16. [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)



  17. 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!



  18. [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)

    The war on encrypted communication (or secure communications) carries on despite a lack of evidence that encryption stands in the way of crime investigations (most criminals use none of it)



  24. On the 'Peak Hacker' Series

    Hacker culture, unlike Ludditism, is ultimately a movement for justice, for equality, and for human rights through personal and collective emancipation; Dr. Farnell has done a good job explaining where we stand and his splendid series has come to a close

  29. A Parade of Fake News About the UPC Does Not Change the General Consensus or the Simple Facts

    European Patents (EPs) from the EPO are granted in violation of the EPC; Courts are now targeted by António Campinos and the minions he associates with (mostly parasitic litigation firms and monopolists), for they want puppets for “judges” and for invalid patents to be magically rendered “valid” and “enforceable”



  30. Welcome to 2022: Intentional Lies Are 'Benefits' and 'Alternative Facts'

    A crooks-run EPO, together with the patent litigation cabal that we’ve dubbed ‘Team UPC’ (it has nothing to do with science or with innovation), is spreading tons of misinformation; the lies are designed to make the law-breaking seem OK, knowing that Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are practically above the law, so perjury as well as gross violations of the EPC and constitutions won’t scare them (prosecution as deterrence just isn’t there, which is another inherent problem with the UPC)
