ES: La Política de Patentes Es Controlada Por Gigantes como General Electric y Apple, NO el Público

Posted in America, Law, Patents at 3:26 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Great background

(ODF | PDF | English/original)

Resumen: Más evidencias nuevas que las grandes corporaciones, con decenas de miles de monopolios de las patentes son los que también controla la política de patentes.

SI la USPTO (Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos) proclama que está ahí para servir al público, entonces es seguro que hace un trabajo de mala calidad. Al ser el otorgante de los monopolios, simplemente ayuda a excluir al público y elevar artificialmente los precios en beneficio de las grandes empresas (y los multimillonarios que las dirigen). Cuanto antes los ciudadanos se dan cuenta de esto, mayor será la oposición a la USPTO y está se convertirá (en especial la “P” en la USPTO).

La semana pasada mostró que Intel estaba atacando a los intereses públicos, mientras pretendemos hacer lo contrario[http://techrights.org/2011/06/13/intel-for-swpats/]. Se argumentaba que las patentes de software eran buenos para el público. Lo que es una mentira vergonzosa, vergonzante. La “propiedad intelectual” se hace eco de multitud de mensajes de Intel[http://twitter.com/ballard_ip/status/80021797378076672] al decir (en este caso) que de Intel en la “necesidad de las patentes de software”. Tiene patentes 45K en todo el mundo e invierte de $ 300 a 500 millones en el # smallbiz ”

No hay nada como PR (Relaciones Públicas), ¿verdad? Para una empresa que vale (capitalización bursátil), casi 1.000 veces más de lo que pretende invertir (con fines de lucro) en las pequeñas empresas esto es puramente PROPAGANDA. Y que no dice nada sobre las pequeñas empresas a las que Intel aplasta todo el tiempo, incluso violando la ley y triturando las pruebas. Hemos cubierto esto antes.

El presidente de la FFII (Fundación para una Infraestructura de Información Libre) responde con[http://twitter.com/zoobab/statuses/80178203326562304]:

@Ballard_ip Smallbiz no puede competir con Intel en materia de patentes. Yo reto a Intel en su demanda de hardware == software

Otra compañía que es aún más grande que Intel sería GE, que también promueve las patentes de software[http://techrights.org/2009/05/02/general-electric-for-sw-pats-in-eu/] y otras cosas que dañan al Software Libre[http://techrights.org/2009/11/23/dirty-laundry-at-general-electric/]. Bueno, de acuerdo con este nuevo artículo[http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-06-13/ge-joins-apple-in-urging-congress-to-let-patent-office-keep-fees.html], “GE se une a Apple para instar al Congreso a dejar a la Oficina de Patentes mantener sus tarifas”:

Apple Inc. (AAPL), la AFL-CIO y la Universidad de Yale se encontraban entre empresas, sindicatos y universidades, exhortando a los legisladores Casa de incluir una disposición en la legislación pendiente que permitiría a la agencia de patente de los EE.UU. el control de su propia financiación.

Más de 150 empresas, escuelas y grupos enviaron hoy una carta al presidente de la Cámara, John Boehner, republicano de Ohio, y el líder de la minoría Nancy Pelosi, una demócrata de California, expresando su apoyo a dejar que la Oficina de Patente de los EE.UU. mantenga todos los derechos que recoge de los usuarios.

Notoriamente ausente de este debate son los representantes del público. Eso demuestra que para la USPTO, el público no tiene importancia. No es justificado. La verdad es que las patentes como un todo daña al público en muchos aspectos, excepto tal vez a algunos miembros del público, que son altamente cotizados en alguna empresa como GE. Las patentes son para ellos. Para el resto es sólo un tema que realmente no debiera existir. No se trata sólo temas como el costo de los tratamientos médicos, pero también cosas de menor importancia que se relacionan con la sociedad y no únicamente los costos; considerar patente de Microsoft sobre las cámaras que se niegan a trabajar (como una patente). Apple también la fabricación de teléfonos se vuelven contra sus “dueños” sobre la base de este nuevo artículo[http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/06/apple-to-ban-iphone-concert-filming/] que dice o por lo menos pregunta: “¿Apple prohibe la filmación de conciertos con el iPhone?” Bueno, Apple siempre está al servicio de los cárteles de derechos de autor, que es abominable en sí mismo. Bueno, ahora que persiguen un monopolio en este Hollywood chúpatelo. Apple no es una compañía de ensueño?

Divulgación: Mi hermana y su marido trabajan en Intel y GE, pero NO me reservo ningún juicio porque los principios son lo primero.

  1. 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”



  2. 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)



  3. From Software Eating the World to the Pentagon Eating All the Software

    “Software is eating the world,” according to Marc Andreessen (co-founder of Netscape), but the Empire Strikes Back (not the movie, the actual empire) by hijacking all code by proxy, via Microsoft, just as it grabbed a lot of the world’s communications via Skype, bypassing the world's many national telecoms; coders need to fight back rather than participate in racist (imperial) shams such as GitHub

  8. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)



  9. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects



  13. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  25. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)
