More and More Lobbying for Software Patents, Not Just in Battistelli’s EPO But Also in India and the US
Team Battistelli and their minions in the media continue to promote the abomination which is software patents
Summary: Front groups or media companies associated with (and funded by) the patent microcosm drive the agenda which would ruin local companies for the sake of parasitic elements
attistelli is (unfortunately) European and he uses the laughing stock which the EPO has become to promote software patents in India (see our Indian angle on that, published earlier tonight). IAM, the EPO’s mouthpiece of choice, has just advertised IPBC India 2017, yet another IAM event (like those that are supported by the EPO and even funded by the EPO’s PR firm). One can bet they’ll push software patents in India pretty soon, having done so already from their site which is based in the UK. Battistelli, according to some very large British law firm, has made the EPO more friendly towards software patents than the USPTO is. In spite of the European ban on software patents! That’s how bad things have become! Mischief would be an understatement; “Corruption” might give us more legal threats from Team Battistelli.
“Battistelli, according to some very large British law firm, has made the EPO more friendly towards software patents than the USPTO is.”Meanwhile, over in the US, the President of IPO sent a letter (from December 9th) that urged Trump to bring back software patents to the US. Under “Policy and Advocacy Experience” it says about Lee's successor at the USPTO, “The Director must be capable of effectively taking the international stage in WIPO, EPO, JPO, and in other international agencies, and advocating for U.S. positions on international IP matters.”
EPO and WIPO? Seriously? Both are human rights abusers that drive workers to suicide. As a software patents proponent put it, “Kevin Rhodes Sends Trump Transition Team Letter Describing Qualifications USPTO Dir.” Above is a screenshot of the two pages of the letter, in case Rhodes et al decide to remove it later (as often turns out to be the case, based on one’s latest agenda as epi serves to show).
If that Director “belongs to the family,” as Benjamin Henrion put it, then IPO will be happy. He didn’t mean family literally; hiring from one’s actual family is Battistelli’s French specialty [1, 2, 3, 4]. █
