This is Why Benoît Battistelli Has 0% Approval Rating Among ‘His’ Staff at the EPO

Posted in Europe, Patents at 5:27 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Battistelli is the EPO’s own Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, exploiting emergencies for further crackdowns against ‘his’ people

French BattistelliSummary: The EPO expresses solidarity regarding (mostly) French people but does so only in English as the real purpose is to manipulate the media and justify the EPO’s sheer abuses and unprecedented oppression against staff

It sometimes feels as though amid EPO crises Benoît Battistelli awaits external crises like terror attacks. This has become a hallmark of Battistelli. He breaks his own rules, he breaks laws, and the only justification he brings up is that there’s a major crisis which makes it necessary. He is like Erdoğan, who now tries to bring back the death penalty (following a failed coup attempt). At the EPO Mr. Battistelli needs a perception of terror (other than his own) to help justify millions of Euros (per term) spent on personal bodyguards. How much more inane can it get?

We keep seeing scorn regarding this claim that the “EPO believes in an open and inclusive society based on fundamental principles of freedom, equality and justice,” based on its own crazy statement, signed by Benoît Battistelli the day after the attack in Nice. “If EPO believes so much in “equality” principle, maybe it should not discriminate people who do not speak FR/NL/DE,” Benjamin Henrion wrote about it and another person remarked about inclusivity by stating: “Statement not available in French. Shame. And somehow strange.”

“Battistelli is delusional, paranoid, abusive, arrogant, monomaniacal, high-tempered, clueless, thuggish, and a chronic liar.”Well, that statement wasn’t for the victims or for the French people. It was for the media (published under “news”). Battistelli likes to pretend to be a victim, so he exploits every terror attack and makes it seem like he’s the savior. It’s a cheap political stunt (attempt at unification at times of crisis and fear) and since Battistelli is inherently a politician (he doesn’t grok technical things) this kind of tasteless exploitation must come naturally to him. Battistelli is delusional, paranoid, abusive, arrogant, monomaniacal, high-tempered, clueless, thuggish, and a chronic liar. A little more of these things can’t do much more harm than his reputation (of which he has none, he has 0% approval rating among staff). This latest statement of his already got the attention of some at IP Kat, who also mock it.

  2. Digital Communication, Digitalisation and Videogaming Among the EPO's Latest Smokescreens for Illegal and Abstract Patents on Algorithms

    The EPO keeps liaising with the EU to promote patents which EU officials have themselves said were illegal; to make matters worse, the EPO's violations of its own laws inspire the United States to do the same



  3. Emotional Blackmail for Illegal Software Patents

    Semantic tactics the European Patent Office (EPO) uses to promote software patents in Europe and may theoretically use in the future (satire)



  4. Clear Linux is to GNU/Linux What Clearly Defined is to Open Source

    The idea that we need Intel to take GNU/Linux ‘mainstream’ is ludicrous; as OSDL co-founder (now succeeded in the flesh of the Corporate Linux Foundation), Intel is more about Linux (with DRM, “secure boot” and everything that lets it be remotely controlled) than about GNU and it’s not too keen on GPL (copyleft), either

  20. Pretending EPO Corruption Stopped Under António Campinos When It is in Fact a Lot Worse in Several Respects/Aspects (Than It Was Under Benoît Battistelli)

    Germany's eagerness to keep Europe's central patent office in Munich (and to a lesser degree in Berlin) means that politicians in the capital and in Bavaria turn a blind eye to abuses, corruption and even serious crimes; this won't help Germany's image in the long run

    The EPO with its illegal guidelines (in violation of the EPC) can carry on churning out millions of fake patents that European courts would only waste time on and small companies be blackmailed with (they cannot afford legal battles)
