The Corruption of the European Patent Office and CIPO’s (Canada) Participation in This

Summary: Coming back from summertime with vengeance, the EPO’s UPC careerists will use the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) to spread their lies

THE management of the EPO lives in a parallel universe. Either it’s lying a lot intentionally or it simply believes its own lies (delusion, cognitive dissonance). We’ll generally (and generously) assume it’s the latter and continue to rebut the lies.

“What they mean to say is that justice and fundamental logic don’t always triumph in the world of politics (or “realpolitik”) — a world where the German Justice Minister Heiko Maas actively obstructs justice perhaps because he desperately wants the UPC.”We continue to find many incidents where the EPO publicly lies (to journalists, to staff and more). There are several large Web sites out there that are tracking and counting lies of Donald Trump; we could use the same sort of thing for the EPO, but quite frankly we have lost count and it would be a full-time job and require access to the intranet too.

Thankfully, several high-level figures are catching up and are rebutting the lies with us. Regarding the recent 5-page paper from Professor Siegfried Broß, a new comment said this: “Or just another academic brain-fart that will have little or no impact on the world of Macchiastellian realpolitik ?”

What they mean to say is that justice and fundamental logic don’t always triumph in the world of politics (or “realpolitik”) — a world where the German Justice Minister Heiko Maas actively obstructs justice perhaps because he desperately wants the UPC.

“On the face of it, the EPO will continue to lie about the UPC, even though the German government is certainly not ratifying any time soon (if ever).”“Yes,” responded another person to the above comment, “but a very interesting read anyway, because it IS the style of academic brain-fart that constitutional judges come up with. The final verdict and the resulting realpolitik may be very different, but this will be a part of the German Constitutional judges considerations.

“Now, how they will explain it away to allow the continuation of a constitution Germany had wonderfully and practically working in very fine for 40+ years will be another read….”

On the face of it, the EPO will continue to lie about the UPC, even though the German government is certainly not ratifying any time soon (if ever).

Look what is happening in Canada. The CIPO consultation mentioned here the other day (not regarding patent scope on the face of it) was brought up by UPC boosters the other day (Friday) and then came this CIPO tweet about a “roadshow” with the EPO. “Join our #roadshow with @EPOorg on Unitary #Patent & Unified Patent Court,” it said and the corresponding page reveals Battistelli’s UPC liar, Margot Fröhlinger. She is going to tell a whole bunch of lies again. Battistelli pays her to lie like this, even if it’s a waste of money and an insult to the integrity and reputation of the Office. Remember, as per last month’s article from the German media, that EPO literally PAID for ‘press’ ‘coverage’ (for bribed ‘journalism’, about 100 articles in number). For the short EIA ceremony (one afternoon) it’s said that 3 MILLION euros got wasted by Battistelli (reaffirming what we wrote over a year ago). Corruption of the media for this one events helps also corrupt the same media for UPC puff pieces.

“The EPO is lying, it’s violating national laws, it habitually corrupts the media, and it attacks (sometimes viciously enough with a firing or lawsuits) critics who correct the EPO.”Watch what the CIPO page is saying: “Fröhlinger is one of the driving forces behind the creation of the Unitary Patent and the UPC system. She deals with issues such as the development of patent law at the European and international levels, patent law harmonization, the strengthening and improvement of the PPH system, as well as with the implementation of the Unitary Patent and the EPO’s relation with the UPC Preparatory Committee.”

In other words, she has been a key player in attacking constitutions, spreading lies in the media, and also discriminating against particular applicants with programmes like PPH (a so-called ‘highway’ like PACE, which we were first to expose, just before the EPO’s face-saving revisionism). A couple of days ago Awapatent’s Troels Peter Rørdam wrote about this discriminatory processing of patent applications at the EPO. “The EPO and the Eurasian Patent Office, EAPO, have announced the signing of a PPH agreement to enter into force later this year,” he said.

Well, look what the EPO has become. The EPO is lying, it’s violating national laws, it habitually corrupts the media, and it attacks (sometimes viciously enough with a firing or lawsuits) critics who correct the EPO. More on that in our next post…

The EPO has become one heck of a corrupt monster. We won’t be letting it off the hook any time soon. Things aren’t improving and the culture of nepotism only ever deepens.

  3. The Free Software Foundation Should Re-add Richard Stallman to the Board

    Dr. Richard Stallman is missed by many who perceive him to have been wrongly treated; putting Stallman back in the Board (at the very least) would help the image of the Free Software Foundation more than the newly-announced work with Community Consulting Teams of Boston



  4. Free Software Calling

    Fewer people are willing to "put up with the shit" given by so-called 'Big Tech', seeing that it's mostly about social control rather than enablement or emancipation

  6. The EPO's Software Blunders Are Inevitable Outcome of Technically Clueless Management Which Grants Illegal Patents on Software

    The "clusterfuck" which the EPO has become is negatively affecting not only EPO staff but also stakeholders, who sink into depression and sometimes anger, even fury, at great expense to their health; this is how institutions die (for a quick but short money grab, a culmination of corruption which piggybacks half a century of goodwill gestures)

    Racist Microsoft is at it again; we're meant to think that China is evil for doing exactly what the United States has been doing but more importantly we're told not to blame Microsoft for shoddy code and back doors (classic blame-shifting tactics and overt distortion of facts, as we saw in the wake of SolarWinds backdoors)



  10. GNU/Linux News Sites Need to Promote Software Freedom, Not Binary and Proprietary Blobs Merely Compiled for GNU/Linux

    The Golang programming language seems to be the target of intense FUD campaigns from sites connected to Microsoft, so it’s likely a bit of a Nemesis/endgame to Microsoft monoculture (unlike Rust, which Microsoft has already pocketed and is actively besieging to promote Microsoft monopoly and hardware monoculture)
