The Crook Goes to Brussels to Lie About the Unitary Patent (UPC)

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 10:10 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Tokarski’s facial expression says it all really…

Battistelli and Tokarski

Summary: The person who spent years lying about the UPC and severely attacking critics (usually by blatantly lying about them) goes to Brussels for another nose extension

THE Liar in Chief, Benoît Battistelli, earlier today said in his so-called ‘blog’ (not clear who composes these and be aware that it’s an epo.org link, so it may compromise readers’ anonymity) that “[l]ast week [he] was in Brussels to speak at a hearing on the Unitary Patent organised by the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI).”

We previously mentioned the EPO’s lobbying activity (a growing aspect of the EPO) in Brussels. Instead of focusing on patents the EPO is now spending huge resources (including paying the media) basically just lobbying. Totally inappropriate! It seems apparent, based on Battistelli’s own words, that the UPC isn’t happening any time soon (if ever). It seems apparent that Bristows et al were all just lying (or “lobbying”) about UPC dates. At this stage, would anyone out there take them seriously any longer? This is far from the first time/case of false predictions for self-serving purposes. March seventh becomes end of March, then “UK remained on track to ratify this year,” according to Battistelli. His predictions too have been awful. They just keep saying it’ll start very soon, but it’s never happening. They have been doing this for years. Team UPC, in social media sites at least, is already boosting Benoît Battistelli’s lies. They love him! Says a lot about them! self-serving sociopaths and liars.

“Team UPC, in social media sites at least, is already boosting Benoît Battistelli’s lies. They love him! Says a lot about them!”As for EPO people, one of them wrote: “A view far far away from reality?”

“As Long as Europe tolerates reality and logic won’t get in the way,” said another.

Nobody at the EPO believes Battistelli anymore. the UPC (like EPO) is collapsing under his terrible ‘leadership’, bogus patents are being granted under growing pressure (not even the patent microcosm is pleased about that), and the last thing we need in Europe is easy, widespread litigation (impacting all of Europe, in one fell swoop). The whole thing is unhinged and dangerous.

“Nobody at the EPO believes Battistelli anymore. the UPC (like EPO) is collapsing under his terrible ‘leadership’, bogus patents are being granted under growing pressure (not even the patent microcosm is pleased about that), and the last thing we need in Europe is easy, widespread litigation (impacting all of Europe, in one fell swoop).”Battistelli (or his PA or PR people or whoever) wrote: “Given the triggering of article 50, which is set for later this week, it was understandable that a point was raised in the hearing on the potential effect of Brexit for the Unitary Patent Package and, specifically, on its timing. Yet there are a number of solid reasons why we have cause to believe that the first unitary patent will indeed be granted at the end of this year.”

No longer the end of this month? So Team UPC has been lying to all of us again. Why are we not surprised? It’s only us who went against the current and insisted that Team UPC was lying. And we were right all along!

Thankfully, the liars from Bristows have not yet ‘infected’ (or co-opted) IP Kat for their usual UPC lobbying. Maybe they are still working on it, so stay tuned. Their damage control won’t be too convincing — no more than Battistelli’s.

“What the EPO says to this day, even very officially, usually turns out to have been a lie.”We are gratified to see that at least one ‘Kat’ is still watching the EPO over there. The other day Mark Schweizer took on Jouve and Schweizer has just posted this article about the boards. Schweizer doesn’t quite continue coverage of the EPO where Merpel left off (he leaves out the elephant in the room, which is the many massive scandals), but at least he expresses some scepticism. What the EPO says to this day, even very officially, usually turns out to have been a lie. This probably, as per the above, just turned out to be the case when it comes to that awful ‘press release’ with Jo Johnson in it (complete with a photo op). Don’t expect UPC ratification in the UK. Johnson must have done his homework and grasped the complexity of the whole situation.

  3. SUSE is Still Pushing Microsoft Proprietary Software and Bragging About the Novell Patent Collusion With Microsoft

    SUSE seems to have learned no lessons after the aftermath of its (or Novell’s) Microsoft patent scam, which had been negotiated partly by Miguel de Icaza (now working directly for Microsoft) before causing Novell to collapse and offload its patents to Microsoft (‘TikTok operandi’ or asset stripping); the past cannot be left behind if SUSE — like Novell — celebrates and perpetuates that past



  4. Release: 29 Pages of Internet Access Report About Pedophile Working for Bill Gates at His Home

    As we’ve found nothing too sensitive in the document, today we’re finally disclosing and publishing the second release (first one published yesterday); this includes network addresses used on the devices of the engineer of Bill Gates, who had a laptop and external hard drives (portable) with plenty of child pornography (imagery and videos)

    The illegal (attempted) confiscation of a Chinese company to distract from or compensate for Microsoft's collapse reminds us that Microsoft is only getting worse and more malicious under Nadella, who is happy to liaise with a hugely corrupt and racist regime

    The coronavirus pandemic that began last year as an epidemic (COVID-19) is still a very serious problem, even half a year after its widespread arrival in Europe; it's important to emphasise the importance of not down-playing this problem (which is far from solved) because social control media is full of junk

  13. [Meme] Is It Not a Layoffs Round When You Rebrand It?

    More and more Microsoft layoffs; but the media is hardly interested in reporting those and/or analysing the growing scale of the layoffs (about half a dozen rounds of layoffs this summer alone)



  14. IBM is Already Gutting Red Hat and Firing Employees Without Warning, Jim Whitehurst Isn't Even Using GNU/Linux

  15. Microsoft Lays Off Many More Workers in the Advertising Division/s and Terminates Products While the Press is Distracted by TikTok Rumours

  17. IBM and the Bomb - Part VI: Diplomacy Replaced With 'Trade' (Money Over Politics), or How Watson Jr. Was Sold to the Public, in the Same Way His Father (IBM Co-founder) Sold His Business Relationship With Dictators Like Hitler

    Sometimes people are led to believe that corporations directly and indirectly run their country; judging by the events of 4 decades ago (IBM chief becoming the American representative in Russia/Soviet Union), this is hardly a new thing and it's not a myth, either



  18. IBM and the Bomb - Part V: Arms Control by Company That Profits From Nuclear Arms? World War II Mistakes Repeated?

    A decade after the end of the deadliest war his father died and two decades later he repeated the same mistake — the error of conflating business with politics, as if maximising revenue would miraculously achieve the best outcome for nations as well

  21. [Meme] Privilege: When They're Born Into Money That Means They Know Everything About Anything

    Tens of thousands of nuclear weapons were in 'safe hands' because rich kid Tom was representing the United States in Russia (USSR at the time), having proven his skills by being born to the man who had met Hitler and made lots of money in the Third Reich



  22. IBM and the Bomb - Part IV: IBM's Watson Came Under Fire for Representing the U.S. in U.S.S.R./Russia With No Qualifications or Any Relevant Experience

    There was certainly resistance to "Mr. rich man" Watson Jr. becoming a US diplomat owing to privilege (born into the 'right' family) rather than experience and/or political track record, symbolising a sort of "revolving doors" phenomenon -- namely overlap between business and politics, or money and power, respectively



  23. IBM Loves Power (and Nuclear POWER, or Expensive OpenPOWER) More Than It Loves GNU/Linux

    As we noted last week, IBM is very close to Modi because it is moving a lot of its workforce to India and this can become a future liability to IBM’s reputation (or lack thereof) as a tolerant firm



  24. IBM and the Bomb - Part III: IBM's Watson Jr. Rose From Business V.I.P. to U.S. Ambassador in the Soviet Union During the Cold War (Which IBM Profited From)

    Like his father, who was IBM‘s co-founder and later president of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), which helped the Nazis, Watson Jr. entered US and international politics in his later days; recently-declassified documents show us his political legacy



  25. Donald Trump's Trash Against China Helps Prop up Microsoft Monopoly and Distract From All the Microsoft Layoffs

    Microsoft as a surveillance giant of the United States government isn’t a myth; it was first in the PRISM programme of the NSA (Bill Gates is a loud proponent of NSA surveillance), it took over European Skype under mysterious circumstances, and now it might be getting TikTok as a ‘gift’ from Donald Trump’s friends and the imperialists, in effect confiscating Chinese assets for full-spectrum dominance



  26. [Meme] Testosterone Patent Office

    When you're running an office that's barely diverse at all and you paint a misleading picture of it expect backlash



  27. The Criminals Who Run the EPO Are Exploiting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People to Distract From Their Corruption and Crimes

    The misuse of social justice causes by corporate interests has become grotesque; more people ought to speak about the ramifications and object/work against this misuse, which mostly serves to obscure or distract from the biggest issues



  28. EPO Workers Are Losing Their Homes and Losing Their Time Off; It's All About So-called 'Production'

    As another wave of attack on labour rights, European Patent Office (EPO) workers turn their homes into their workplaces and they no longer enjoy any real breaks from work (they work all year around, sometimes until midnight and overnight); they’re supposed to be thankful and even happy as if António Campinos does them a favour by not firing them (at least not yet) and because there’s a health crisis they should be grateful for anything thrown at them (Benoît Battistelli + disaster = Campinos)
