German Media is Not Covering EPO Scandals and Instead Repeating Patently False Claims From EPO Management
Summary: As EPO patent application numbers decrease and stock runs out the Administrative Council still refuses to see what’s going on (or refuses to actually act while driving into a wall) and German media acts as though all is fine and dandy in Munich, which now fosters Europe’s biggest embarrassment
Earlier this week we wrote two articles about how the EPO tried to distract from the decline in patent applications, namely:
- Incredibly Unscientific: EPO is Making up Excuses for Decline in Patent Applications
- Unscientific and Offensive: EPO Deletes From the Map Countries Where Number of Applications at the EPO Has Declined!
The EPO has not gotten tired of its bogus, unscientific info [sic] graphic (based on missing data, in order to defend bogus figures). Today, for the third day in a row, it posted the same info [sic] graphic again, this time with a German ‘flavour’.
“Applications from Germany grew in 2016 reversing the downward trend of the previous years,” it said. How about all those countries (missing from the EPO’s map) where 2016 saw a reversal from increase to decrease? The EPO hasn’t the integrity to name the many such countries! Maybe it even lacks the space (in the info [sic] graphic to list them all).
“I imagine he [Kongstad] has made a decision between two options: a) abandon him [Battistelli] (and be sacked by him now), or b) attempt to prop him up for as long as possible (and be sacked along side him).”
–AnonymousAmplifying Battistelli’s propaganda right now, in German (which means Battistelli cannot read it), is this article which was in turn propped up by the EPO’s Twitter account (see retweets, it was sent to all those bogus accounts that "follow" EPO).
What’s wrong with this article other than the ridiculous picture (“innovation”)? Mind the headline; the headline does not match the body, as it actually helps distract from the declines in applications and instead focuses on the low-quality arrivals from China (we had already explained why these are of very low quality). We took a screenshot of the relevant portion, derived from this automated translation. A few months ago we said "Shame on the German Media for the Media Blackout Surrounding EPO Protests in Munich (and Sometimes Berlin)" and we are still left wondering why British media does an order of magnitude more work covering the EPO scandals than the German media, about the Office which is based in Germany!
What happened to German media? Germans too are often wondering.
Right now in Germany, Jesper Kongstad, a heartless Dane, is herding the Administrative Council’s delegates. He must be herding them like he is herding chinchillas: Lock them up in golden cages, eventually sell them to millionaires.
“Does the Turkish patent office have an opening at the moment? Sounds like this guy would fit right in with Erdogan and his cronies. They’d get along like a house on fire.”
–AnonymousHere is a good explanation of what goes on with Kongstad (in reality, technically, he cannot be sacked by Battistelli, through Battistelli can lobby and stage a coup, like he did against a judge, against SUEPO and so on): “I imagine he [Kongstad] has made a decision between two options: a) abandon him [Battistelli] (and be sacked by him now), or b) attempt to prop him up for as long as possible (and be sacked along side him).”
Eventually, as in all such scandals (e.g. FIFA), consequences will likely be severe.
One person has just asked: “Wouldn’t it be nice to get the courier with the ‘you are fired’ notice be called Thor?”
“They are like parasites preying on the host that they are killing while nations (outside NPOs, i.e. outside the patent microcosm) refuse to intervene.”Another person asked (about Battistelli): “Does the Turkish patent office have an opening at the moment? Sounds like this guy would fit right in with Erdogan and his cronies. They’d get along like a house on fire.”
If anyone can leak to us the results of the Administrative Council’s votes, we will certainly appreciate it. This way we’ll know whose E-mail addresses to publish (for inquiries regarding Battistelli complicity).
This cannot go on for much longer. The EPO is dying. It’s running out of work and it won't be long before it results in massive, unprecedented layoffs. The future of the EPO as a whole is now at stake while Team Battistelli is busy enriching itself with complicity of well-paid delegates. They are like parasites preying on the host that they are killing while nations (outside NPOs, i.e. outside the patent microcosm) refuse to intervene. █
