EPO, Lufthansa, and the German Government – Part IX: Potentially Fatal Injury to Air Plus Trademark Holder

Posted in Europe, Patents at 12:15 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

EPO, Lufthansa, and the German Government

Summary: The Air Plus trademark holder, who spends many of his days in the hospital nowadays, and suspicions that there was an attempt to harm him and spy on him

THIS series began over a week ago and since then Croatian and German media have taken note. In fact, some readers have offered additional help investigating these matters. In parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 we dealt not only with the role of Željko Topić (now EPO) but also some people around him. Having studied these matters, we often came across stories where Topić attacked his critics’ right to speak; even journalists and officials were impacted by this. Today we deal with suspicions of physical attacks too (in English and German below).


ENFinally, it should be noted that during the legal dispute and the criminal proceedings against Lufthansa Airplus Servicekarten GmbH, the owner of the Air Plus trademark approached Anto Nobilo, the prominent Zagreb lawyer who is known for his role in the recent high-profile court case against former Croatian members of the Jugoslav secret service for murders committed on German territory in the 1980′s. The lawyer, however, declined to represent the trademark owner, with the remark that this is not a legal but rather a political case.

Furthermore, the trademark holder of Air Plus 2010 suffered a serious ski accident causing permanent health damage while skiing in France. The “accident” was caused by an unknown man who fled from the scene. The case is being investigated on grounds of serious bodily harm by the French prosecutor in Albertvill (annexed document #13). To this day the case which is registered under the number 10264000085 remains unresolved. Ivan Jurašinović, the cautious and sceptical Paris-based lawyer of the injured party, (annexed photo #14), openly expresses doubts and questions the manner in which the case is being handled in view of the deliberate injury with potentially fatal consequences caused to the trademark owner of Air Plus. In this regard a request was filed with the Croatian police for the monitoring and checking of the e-mails of the Air Plus trademark holder, as there is a well-founded suspicion that his e-mail account was hacked and its contents forwarded. The limited circle of suspects centres on the departments of the EPO entrusted with security and software and under whose cover the Vice-President of the EPO, Željko Topić, is suspected to hide.


DEAbschließend muß erwähnt werden, daß der Inhaber des Markenzeichens Air Plus, während der gerichtlichen Auseinandersetzung und des Strafverfahrens gegen die Lufthansa Airplus Servicekarten GmbH, sich an den Zagreber Rechtsanwalt Anto Nobilo gewendet hat. (Er ist aus dem Gerichtsverfahren gegen ehemalige kroatische Mitglieder des Geheimdienstes für die auf deutschem Territorium verübte Morde bekannt). Der Rechtsanwalt hat aber die Vertretung des Markenzeichensinhabers, mit der Erklärung, daß es sich hierbei nicht um eine juristische, sondern eine politische Frage handelt, abgelehnt.

Weiter hat der Markenzeicheninhaber von Air Plus 2010 beim Skilaufen in Frankreich einen schweren Skiunfall mit dauerhaften Gesundheitsschäden erlitten. Dieser Unfall wurde von einem unbekannten Mann verursacht, der vom Unfallort geflohen ist. Der Fall wird auf schwere Körperverletzung von der französischen Anwaltschaft in Albertvill (#13. Nachweis im Anhang) untersucht. Der Fall blieb bis heute ungelöst und wird unter der Nummer 10264000085 geführt. Der vorsichtige und misstrauische französische Rechtsanwalt des Geschädigten, Ivan Jurašinović (#14.), mit Sitz in Paris, zweifelt ihn offen an und bestreitet die Straftat, also die absichtliche Verletzung mit möglichen Todesfolgen des Markenzeicheninhabers von Air Plus. Diesbezüglich wurde bei der kroatischen Polizei ein Antrag zur Aufsicht und Kontrolle der E-Mails des Markeninhabers von Air Plus gestellt, da es einen begründeten Verdacht gibt, daß sein E-Mail-Account gehackt und weitergeleitet wurde. Der geschlossene Kreis von Verdächtigen fällt auf die Abteilung von EPO, welche mit dem Schutz und Software beauftragt ist und in dessen Hintergrund sich der Vizepräsident von Epo, Željko Topić, versteckt.

What Else is New


  1. EPO 'Business' From the United States Has Nosedived and UPC is on Its Death Throes

    Benoît Battistelli and Elodie Bergot further accelerate the ultimate demise of the EPO (getting rid of experienced and thus 'expensive' staff), for which there is no replacement because there is a monopoly (which means Europe will suffer severely)



  2. Links 17/11/2017: KDE Applications 17.12, Akademy 2018 Plans

    Links for the day



  3. Today's EPO and Team UPC Do Not Work for Europe But Actively Work Against Europe

    The tough reality that some Europeans actively work to undermine science and technology in Europe because they personally profit from it and how this relates to the Unitary Patent (UPC), which is still aggressively lobbied for, sometimes by bribing/manipulating the media, academia, and public servants



  4. Links 16/11/2017: WordPress 4.9 and GhostBSD 11.1 Released

    Links for the day



  5. The Staff Union of the EPO (SUEPO) is Rightly Upset If Not Shocked at What Battistelli and Bergot Are Doing to the Office

    The EPO's dictatorial management is destroying everything that's left (of value) at the Office while corrupting academia and censoring discussion by threatening those who publish comments (gagging its own staff even when that staff posts anonymously)



  6. EPO Continues to Disobey the Law on Software Patents in Europe

    Using the same old euphemisms, e.g. "computer-implemented inventions" (or "CII"), the EPO continues to grant patents which are clearly and strictly out of scope

    Links for the day



  8. Benoît Battistelli and Elodie Bergot Have Just Ensured That EPO Will Get Even More Corrupt

    Revolving door-type tactics will become more widespread at the EPO now that the management (Battistelli and his cronies) hires for low cost rather than skills/quality and minimises staff retention; this is yet another reason to dread anything like the UPC, which prioritises litigation over examination



  9. Australia is Banning Software Patents and Shelston IP is Complaining as Usual

    The Australian Productivity Commission, which defies copyright and patent bullies, is finally having policies put in place that better serve the interests of Australians, but the legal 'industry' is unhappy (as expected)



  10. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) Defended by Technology Giants, by Small Companies, by US Congress and by Judges, So Why Does USPTO Make It Less Accessible?

    In spite of the popularity of PTAB and the growing need/demand for it, the US patent system is apparently determined to help it discriminate against poor petitioners (who probably need PTAB the most)



  11. Declines in Patent Quality at the EPO and 'Independent' Judges Can No Longer Say a Thing

    The EPO's troubling race to the bottom (of patent quality) concerns the staff examiners and the judges, but they cannot speak about it without facing rather severe consequences



  12. The EPO is Now Corrupting Academia, Wasting Stakeholders' Money Lying to Stakeholders About the Unitary Patent (UPC)

    The Unified Patent Court/Unitary Patent (UPC) is a dying project and the EPO, seeing that it is going nowhere fast, has resorted to new tactics and these tactics cost a lot of money (at the expense of those who are being lied to)

  15. Decline of Skills Level of Staff Like Examiners and Impartiality (Independence) of Judges at the EPO Should Cause Concern, Alarm

    Access to justice is severely compromised at the EPO as staff is led to rely on deficient tools for determining novelty while judges are kept out of the way or ill-chosen for an agenda other than justice

  18. The Patent Trolls' Lobby is Losing the Battle for Europe

    The situation in Europe is looking grim for patent trolls, for their policies and the envisioned system (which they lobbied for) isn't coming to fruition and their main casualty is the old (and functioning) EPO



  19. Unitary Patent (UPC) is Dead to the EPO and ANSERA is Not the Answer as Patent Quality Declines and Talented Staff Leaves

    EPOPIC comes to an end and the EPO does not mention the UPC 'content' in it; ANSERA, in the meantime, raises more questions than it answers and IP Kat makes a formal query



  20. Why Honest Journalism on Patent Matters Barely Exists

    Media coverage in the area of patent law is still appalling as it's dominated if not monopolised by those who benefit from patent maximalism

  24. Alice (De Facto Ban on Software Patents) Remains Untouched in 2017 and Likely in 2018 As Well

    The patent microcosm (people like Dennis Crouch) is trying to find cases that can contradict Alice (at the higher levels, especially the US Supreme Court) but is unable to find them; as things stand, suing anyone with a software patent seems like a losing/high-risk strategy



  25. The USPTO's Joe Matal (Interim Director) Sounds Serious About Improving the Patent Quality and Services

    An expressed desire to improve the US patent system rather than treat is like a money-making machine, as illuminated in recent days by Patently-O



  26. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) Defends Firms From Bogus Patents and US Congress Hears About How PTAB Dodgers Misuse Immunity

    The debate about PTAB is being lost by the patent microcosm, whose attempt to dodge and demonise PTAB merely serves to reinforce PTAB's importance and continued success

  28. Benoît Battistelli Gives Power to Željko Topić, Not Just to António Campinos

    Topić still derives power from Battistelli, who treats him like his right-hand man



  29. Next EPO President Will Continue a Cooperation Which Does Not Exist

    Kluwer Patent Blog is nitpicking the words of António Campinos and expressing scepticism about progress to be made by Campinos



  30. More Microsoft AstroTurfing by Association for Competitive Technology (ACT) and Mingorance

    ACT, now led by Morgan Reed rather than Zuck, is still meddling in European policy (software patents agenda) and other familar front groups appear at the scene in an effort to influence DG Competition
