“Terror” Patent Office Bemoans Terror, Spreads Lies

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 12:16 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Concerns over 'terror' Patent Office
Translation here

Summary: Response to some of the latest utterances from the European Patent Office, where patently untruthful claims have rapidly become the norm

TRUTH is a scarcity at the EPO these days. It has become the exception rather than the norm. Coming from an institution which has science and rule of law at its core (examination and prosecution that oftentimes follows), this is worse than embarrassing. It’s a disaster! It is an ever-deepening crisis, to quote the Board of the Administrative Council. Why don’t they pressure for immediate, wide-ranging change? The Register has had some nice comments to that effect; it’s all about nepotism and mutual protection at the top, including the Chairman of the Administrative Council, who protects rather than supervises the President (like he’s supposed to, as per the EPC).

“Europe has a balanced patent portfolio,” the EPO wrote yesterday. “with innovation spread over many tech fields.” But 'evil tongues' from inside the Office keep telling us that all of the EPO’s numbers are basically bogus numbers that include applications not paid for, applications in the ‘wrong’ language etc. They are desperate to bolster a misleading narrative, wherein the number of applications grows. But actually, as per the simple facts, it’s going down. See for example some recent rebuttals of ours, e.g.:

Yesterday the EPO wrote (belatedly) that “European patent applications from Iceland declined in 2016…”

“They are desperate to bolster a misleading narrative, wherein the number of applications grows. But actually, as per the simple facts, it’s going down.”At the time these ‘results’ were announced the EPO only trumpeted the positives by nitpicking — a very unscientific thing to be doing anywhere (especially so inside the EPO, which is supposed to stand for science).

“As in most European nations,” I responded to them, the EPO “is worthless to them under Battistelli” (most European nations saw a decline in the number of applications for EPs).

“To make matters worse, most of these nations miraculously vanish when the EPO pushes propaganda and lies,” I told the EPO after it had tweeted: “Check out the geographic coverage offered by European #patents!”

“At the time these ‘results’ were announced the EPO only trumpeted the positives by nitpicking — a very unscientific thing to be doing anywhere (especially so inside the EPO, which is supposed to stand for science).”Suddenly they show all the member states, but without any numbers on them (as it would mean minuses all over the map, except in few and sometimes very small nations/populations). Have they got no shame?

Most embarrassing, however, was this utterly improper message from Benoît Battistelli. It would be more or less acceptable coming from anyone but him and EPO insiders already fume at the sight of Battistelli stating “we firmly believe in the core values of tolerance, openness and equality…”

The EPO promoted this message early in the morning, whereupon I asked: “Do you realise how ridiculous that sounds coming from Battistelli?”

“It’s easy to see why Battistelli likes to exploit terror attacks any time they happen.”Battistelli is milking another terror attack, as usual. He has done that at least half a dozen times before. He is a hypocrite because his own regime is openly accused of terrorising staff, even in the mainstream media. The way he implements a regime of terror isn’t anything like ISIS; it’s not like a Battistelli-steered limousine is plowing through a crowd of SUEPO-led protesters by the Isar but rather psychological torture that sometimes leads to suicides and generally spreads fear. Battistelli wants people to fear him rather than respect him, so it’s no wonder 0% of stakeholders and 0% of staff tolerate him (when asked about it confidentially, not by a Battistelli-commissioned firm).

It’s easy to see why Battistelli likes to exploit terror attacks any time they happen. It’s a lot more powerful than a questionable bicycle tale. He is painting himself as the victim fighting a threat, failing to see how hypocritical he looks to his own ‘inferiors’ (who are vastly superior to him intellectually and ethically).

What Else is New


  1. Bill Gates Explains How Microsoft and Apple Leverage Software Patents in Their Cross-Licensing Deals (to Perpetuate Duopoly/Shared Monopoly)

    A look back at Apple's and Microsoft's use or misuse of bogus software patents in bargaining (in effect excluding those who have not amassed tens of thousands of patents)



  2. Standards and Choices

    GNU/Linux is a very standards-based platform; having lots of choices (e.g. distros to choose from) isn’t the principal problem — or nowhere near the extent sabotage and illegal tactics by Microsoft have been



  3. IBM's “Emb(RACE)” Campaign is an Insult to History and Historians

    IBM wishes to be seen as some heroic saviour and warrior for black girls; this requires serious if not torturous revisionism to be believed



  4. There Are Too Many Types of Cars...

    "Choice is malicious," say the antagonists



  5. Reversal of Narratives by Internet Trolls (Spinning Reaction to Their Trolling as 'Abuse')

    Organisations that engage in demonisation of people (typically those who expose the abuses of such organisations) somehow evade the standards of Codes of Conduct, as if Codes of Conduct are covertly designed not to protect individuals but to empower those who already have all the powers (or front for powerful people/corporations)



  6. Ongoing (Albeit Secret) Campaign of Patent Extortion Against GNU/Linux Distributions Using Software Patents, Even Expired Ones in Europe

    GNU/Linux distros attacked by software patents, even in Europe where no such patents are supposed to exist (or have any legal bearing)

  8. Java's James Gosling is Wrong. Free Software Advocates Never Suggested or Insinuated That Money-Making Was Ethically Wrong.

    The honorable James Gosling mischaracterises the stance of Free software advocacy, portraying it like it is an issue of money rather than respect for users



  9. Maybe This is What Codes of Conduct Were Made for? Or to Prevent? (Updated)

    When people bemoan the abuse they receive from a so-called 'anti-harassment' team (covering up corporate corruption in a project by ousting people) this is the kind of thing they receive from colleagues or former colleagues



  10. Media Contradicts Itself, Redefines Proprietary Software as 'Open'... for Microsoft

    Proprietary GitHub is being spun as Microsoft going "open" (nothing could be further from the truth) in another EEE-type move with diffusion and confusion

  14. The Different Types of Spammy 'Articles' and 'Reviews' Which Have Killed 'Professional Journalism' (Nowadays Mostly SPAM)

    The media has become so rogue that a lot of it is merely an extension of the marketing/PR industry; unless this is corrected, online publishers will fail to earn or maintain any degree of trust



  15. When the Software -- and by Extension Hardware and Network -- Controls the User...

    A distraction-free workflow is more likely to be attained using Free software than without it; in a world with information overload and 'surveillance capitalism' people need to carefully rethink what they do (or have done to them) digitally



  16. What the Linux Foundation Teaches People About GNU/Linux in LinuxFoundationX (edX) LFS101x “Introduction to Linux” [sic]

    Some annotated screenshots of preliminary sections of LFS101x, a 'course' designed to indoctrinate people for the Linux Foundation and the project is borrows its name from (but whose trademark it does not control)



  17. Shut Up and Learn to Maintain an Application Suite

    "Try and maintain a complex piece of software like a browser or an office suite, and then you'll understand."



  18. LinuxFoundationX (edX) LFS101x “Introduction to Linux” is More Linux Foundation Marketing and 'Linux' Revisionism Than Actual Training/Teaching

    The Linux Foundation makes a course about "Linux" partly about itself (the Linux Foundation, with top members like Microsoft and Oracle) and distorts the record with terms like "Open Source" and the pretense everything is "Linux" (even work that predates Linux itself)



  19. Microsoft Sheds Off Lots of Staff in This Autumn of COVID

    Microsoft is laying off more staff than we've estimated (even Azure staff) and the modus operandi disguises layoffs as mere departures (to make it seem wilful)



  20. [Meme] Microsoft's Calculator is Spyware

    The last thing GNU/Linux users need or want is yet another simple calculation tool, this one with Microsoft in control



  21. History's Lesson: Microsoft Now Does to GNU/Linux What It Did to Java (Creating 'Schism' to 'Wrest Control')

    We take a closer look at what Bill Gates admitted (under pressure, with 'smoking guns' to compel him into admission) regarding his rogue tactics



  22. When You Have to Use Windows for Something (Like Work) But You Really Don't Want Anything Proprietary or Microsoft-Controlled

    The situations/scenarios where GNU/Linux and BSD geeks need to 'touch' Windows for something (usually remotely) rapidly dwindle; those who are still using Windows on a laptop/desktop in 2020 are considered tech-illiterate or regarded as 'dinosaurs' (hence the dishonour meme above)

    Links for the day



  24. Surveillance in (and/or by) Free Software is a Growing Problem

    If Free software ceases to respect personal privacy (full control over one’s computing), does it still protect users’ freedom? That’s a question or an aspect not dealt with by the Four Freedoms — and one that’s worth entertaining as so-called ‘surveillance capitalism’ grows (data as currency, people as ‘products’ to be sold)



  25. Bill Gates Refers to His Business as “Jihad” and Accuses Java of Being a “Religion” With “Rabid” Supporters

    Peace disallowed by Bill Gates, as usual; to him, this is all just a religious war that strives to cull out and eliminate or convert the 'infidels' (those who reject his religion); the Bill Gates deposition tapes show his deep concerns and fear of Java APIs

  27. [Meme] Openwashed (and Spying) 'Killer App' for GNU/Linux? A Basic Windows Calculator!

    There's no "Linux" news to cover more important and urgent than just another useless calculator (this one with notorious Microsoft telemetry) being ported to GNU/Linux

  29. Open-Sourcing the Investigation of Gates Deposition Tapes and Their Relationship to Current (Present) Affairs

    The so-called 'philanthropist' and 'giver' that the media tells us Bill Gates suddenly became (he has earned another ~$10,000,000,000 since the pandemic began) needs further exposing because, having raided the software world (monopoly by law-breaking), he now does the same in other domains



  30. The Supposedly 'Soft' Bill Gates Interrogated About What Was Called His “Jihad”

    We revisit the odd choice of words (repeatedly used by Mr. Gates internally), suggestive of some divine call for war/arms in the business context
