EPO Management Discovers Media is Against It

Posted in Europe, Humour, Patents at 8:22 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: Downfall of the EPO’s management in the form of a video

THE EPO tackled with an epic “Downfall“. I made this in a rush, so there are some mistakes in the video, some of which corrected in the transcript beneath (in bold fonts). I could re-render with the corrections, but it would take nearly half an hour.

Transcript:

Journalists are stating to write about our illegitimate activities

It has spread from Dutch and German newspapers to French and English ones

We estimate that it’s just a matter of time before we’re widely viewed as the Pariah of Europe

And it won’t be long before officers come to raid our HQ in Munich

Tell FTI Consulting and Control Risks to get this under control

Sir

Sun King

They couldn’t find any legitimate dirt on Els Hardon

They even tried calling her “sniper” but the public isn’t buying it

I thought we had enough scapegoats in that judge, Hardon, Weaver, and Brumme

We’re losing to that “Mafia”

I thought you told the media there was an armed Nazi

Why did you not obey my order to force the board to sack that bloody judge?

Now my own job is at risk

They told me Control Risks has Stasi contacts in Desa

And that they could sniff out the sources to all these bloggers with the I.U.

My goons are just a bunch of incompetent people incapable of understanding the Streisand Effect

Signing that Control Risks contract was the I.U.‘s idea

Now look at all those articles about my horrible track record, I’d never get a job again

How do you think we feel about our own prospects?

Those Control Risks scum are a disgrace and a waste of money

Can’t even do an investigation right

I told them we have no dough on the accused, they need to make shit up

Might as well claim that SUEPO is a violent union with knives and forks

All I wanted was my precious Unitary Patent Court for major applicants

But the European public just keeps finding out I’m totally out of my mind

Now I know what Napoleon felt like when he invaded Russia

Instead of viewing me as an heroic President my staff now compares me to Stalin

I never even got a Ph.D. like they did

All I have is some French diploma of a wannabe

But I tried to offer them a corporate occupation of Europe

Amateurs!

Nobody loves me and nobody ever respected me all along

The German people all along knew that I was up to no good

But I still have a plan B

I will cut their pay for each day they protest

I’ll drown in my own blood before they force me to obey German law

Elodie, it’ll be alright

I don’t even know if the Unitary Patent will ever happen

Given all these scandals, nobody will believe a word that I say

Might as well call off the FTI Consulting contract

Europe may keep its autonomy

But guys, don’t fool yourselves. I haven’t given up on sending boards as far as Berlin.

They’re going to pay for not obeying my orders

Let SUEPO vote in a replacement for me

What Else is New


  1. This Week Techrights Crosses 26,000 Posts Milestone, 3 Weeks Before Turning 13 (2,000+ Posts/Year)

    A self-congratulatory post about another year that's passed (without breaks from publishing) and another milestone associated with posting volume



  2. No Calls to "Remove Gates" From the Board (Over a Real Scandal/Crime), Only to "Remove Stallman" (Over Phony Distraction From the Former)

    Jeffrey Epstein's connections to Bill Gates extend well beyond Gates himself; other people inside Microsoft are closely involved as well, so Microsoft might want to cut ties with its co-founder before it becomes a very major mess



  3. “The Stupidest [Patent/Tax] Policy Ever”

    It’s pretty clear that today’s European patent system has been tilted grossly in favour of super-rich monopolists and their facilitators (overzealous law firms and ‘creative’ accountants) as opposed to scientists



  4. Meme: Software Patents at the EPO

    The evolution of “technical effect” nonsense at the EPO

  6. Firm of Microsoft's Former Litigation Chief Uses Microsoft-Connected Patent Lawsuit Against GNU/Linux (GNOME Foundation) for New Breed of FUD Campaigns

    The patent troll of Bill Gates and Nathan Myhrvold has fed a patent troll that's attacking GNU/Linux and a firm owned by Microsoft's former litigation chief says it proves "Open Source Software Remains a Target"



  7. "Widespread Adoption" (Did You Mean: Takeover by Monopolies?)

    "Quite a few of them are people that would rather replace David with Goliath, just because he's bigger. Quite a few are already taking money from Goliath."



  8. Links 13/10/2019: Red Hat CFO Fired and KDE Plasma 5.17 Preparations

    Links for the day



  9. Bill's Media Strategy Amid GatesGate

    There are many ways by which to game the media’s news cycle — an art mastered by the groper in chief



  10. Hard-Core Micro-Soft

    The word "core" is increasingly being (mis)used to portray user-hostile proprietary software as something more benign if not "open"



  11. Free Software Timeline and Federation: When Free Software Advocacy/Support is a Monopoly Expansion Becomes Necessary

    Support for Software Freedom — like support for Free software (think Red Hat/IBM and systemd) — should be decentralised and compartmentalised to make the movement stronger and adaptable



  12. Projection Tactics

    The corporate media hasn't been doing its job lately; it has systematically defamed the wrong people, perhaps in an effort to distract from 'big fish'



  13. Meme: Richard Stallman Irrelevant

    Saint IGNUcius — Richard Stallman — just isn’t the Saint Bill Gates is

    Links for the day



  16. The New York Times About the Real Epstein-Software Scandal (Nothing to Do With Stallman)

    The media is belatedly catching up with and covering the real MIT scandal which extends far beyond MIT



  17. Openwashing Reports Are on Hold

    The need to stress Software Freedom and shun all that "open" nonsense has quickly become apparent; some of the people who oppose Stallman turn out to be "Open Source" proponents who don't even value freedom of expression (free speech)



  18. Support the GNU Project and Support Free Speech

    Techrights is loyal to Software Freedom and those eager to promote it; it cannot, however, support those who don’t support free speech



  19. Today's EPO is Working for Patent Trolls and the 'Aye Pee' (IP) 'Industry' Instead of Science

    The EPO is making allegiances and alliances with groups that represent neither science nor businesses but instead push for monopolies, litigation and extortion; lawlessness appears to have become the EPO's very objective instead of what it intends to tackle



  20. The Campinos Car Crash

    The EPO is crashing and we know who’s to blame other than Battistelli



  21. Software Patents (or Monopolies on Algorithms) Are Not 'Property' and They're Not Even Legally Valid

    The EPO insists that it's OK to grant patents on just about everything and propaganda terms are being leveraged to justify this dangerous attitude



  22. The EPO's Universal Patent Injustice Concealed With Polyglottic Tricks

    The EPO is fooling nobody; it's desperate to hide the very simple fact that Battistelli did something illegal and over the past few years every decision issued by the EPO was legally invalid (as per the EPC)



  23. Microsoft Tweets in Linux Platforms

    This observation about the Linux Foundation seems very appropriate (and true) now that Linux.com’s sole editor is (re)posting Microsoft tweets (shades of Jono Bacon)

    What happened a month ago, explained using a meme



  27. António Campinos, With Diplomatic Immunity, Continues Breaking the Law by Granting Patents the EU and EPC Forbade

    The EPO shows how immunity leads to crimes being committed with total impunity; at this point the EPO's immunity must be removed and judges should be permitted to do their job, which is enforcing the law



  28. EPO is Trying to 'Force-Feed' Europe Some Fake Patents by Hijacking Courts

    Having granted a lot of dubious European Patents (to maintain constant growth despite a decreasing number of applications) the EPO seeks to subvert the court system; so far only the constitutions and the laws are being subverted — to the point where these ambitions are collapsing in Europe’s highest courts



  29. If the EPO Plans to Go 'Virtually' Private (Outside Contracting), Then Failing It Would be Deliberate

    Sooner rather than later EPO workers need to entertain the possibility that so-called 'plan Battistelli' is to enrich a bunch of well-connected people rather than improve the Office or its services
