ILO is About to Publish “Exceptional” Decisions, Most of Them Regarding the EPO

Posted in Europe, Law, Patents at 10:51 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Recent: Systemic Injustice at the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Causes Serious Harm to Complainants’ Health, Including EPO Complainants

Guy Ryder
Guy Ryder, Director-General of ILO

Summary: The International Labour Organisation (ILO), which is responsible for ‘externally’ auditing a large number of international organisations to assure justice, prepares to say exceptional things about 5 appeals which emanated from the EPO

JUSTICE is dead at the EPO. It’s not just on its death throes, it’s literally dead. Even judges are subjected to gross injustice and are now at the receiving end of legal bullying (e.g. the judge who is still permanently suspended and in limbo in Munich because of a defamation case).

This is where ILO was, in principle, supposed to step in and intervene, but it does not. It’s embarrassing not just for the EPO but for ILO too. ILO hopefully recognises by now that it’s growingly complicit in EPO abuses because ILO is, for a verifiable fact, cited by Dutch authorities as an excuse for exempting the EPO from the law (even when it clearly and flagrantly violates Dutch law). It’s incredible that something so bad is happening in Europe and most politicians remain apathetic. They don’t wish to rock this boat for various personal/career reasons.

“ILO hopefully recognises by now that it’s growingly complicit in EPO abuses because ILO is, for a verifiable fact, cited by Dutch authorities as an excuse for exempting the EPO from the law (even when it clearly and flagrantly violates Dutch law)”Focusing again on the aforementioned attack on the judge — a poetic move in the sense that it’s injustice against a justice maker — early in the month we wrote about the latest on this (planned party of Battistelli) and 11 days ago we learned that almost nobody will attend. Appeals at the EPO are no longer possible because judges admittedly lack a sense of independence and watch how Battistelli sneaks into the Boards, reminding them that they have no independence at all.

Sent to every member of the appeals board: “The official inauguration of the new premises will take place on 14 December in connection with the 154th meeting of the administrative council. The president of the office and the president of the boards of appeal invite you to this event, which is planned from 12:45 to 14:00 including speeches and a flying buffet lunch. For those of you interested in coming, please indicate it by reform of this email, latest by Monday 4 December noon.”

“ILO failed to fulfill its duties, at least as far as the EPO is concerned.”The “president of the office” is Battistelli. He wants to absolutely control everything and he wants people whom he punished to celebrate this punlishment with him. What a nerve this sociopath has. The authors of the EPC must be turning in their graves (few are likely to be alive at this stage).

In any event, might some reprieve be on the way? ILO, according to this comment from yesterday, has news: (13 comments in that thread now)

The ILO Administrative Tribunal has now announced the exceptional public delivery on December 6 of a series of judgements including no less than FIVE cases against the EPO, which it considers have to be delivered rapidly (i.e. perhaps just in time for the December session of the AC?)
Obviously a few more dark clouds over Battistelli’s achievements under the benevolent supervision of the AC.

http://www.ilo.org/tribunal/news/WCMS_606486/lang–en/index.htm

According to the original, ILO is going to say something very important about the EPO as early as next week. We don’t know which cases it’s about, but 5 out of 8 cases are to involve the EPO. To quote:

The Tribunal will exceptionally deliver in public eight judgments adopted at its 125th Session separately and earlier than the remaining 79 judgments also adopted at the same session.

The eight judgments concern 2 cases against the CDE, 5 cases against the EPO and 1 case against the UPU.

The Tribunal has considered for various reasons that those judgments should be delivered rapidly.

They will be announced in public on Wednesday, 6 December 2017 at 3 pm at the ILO (Room XI, floor R2) and will be published on the Tribunal’s website (ilo.org/trib) shortly after the delivery.

The remaining judgments adopted at the 125th Session will be delivered on Wednesday, 24 January 2018.

We certainly hope that ILO understands the degree to which its inaction contributed to depression (maybe even suicides) and perhaps irreversible collapse of the EPO. ILO failed to fulfill its duties, at least as far as the EPO is concerned.

What Else is New


  1. Techrights Can Figure Out Source Protection/Anonymisation Whilst Operating Very Transparently

    We're still quite radically transparent whilst at the same time enjoying 100% source protection record; we're also improving the software we use to publish more quickly and efficiently

  3. This is How GNU Finally Dies

    "Brace for when GNU falls the way that OSI, FSF, FSFE, Mozilla, and the Linux Foundation did."



  4. Latest Microsoft Layoffs Spun as 'Innovation' (There's Always a Positive PR Angle)

    The public is expected to simply ignore the fact that Microsoft is laying off employees (again); instead we're expected to think it's all about Microsoft being very brilliant and innovative



  5. Microsoft Playing the Victim, Irrationally 'Hated' by Victims of Its Abuse

    We're meant to believe that those whom Microsoft bribes against are the opinionated 'haters' and Microsoft is a victim of 'hate'



  6. Links 1/6/2020: Linux 5.7, FOSSlife Born, LibreOffice 7.0 Beta1, Linux Mint 20 Making Early Promises

  7. Linux Without Linus

    The Linux Foundation seems to be acting like Linus (Linux founder) is somewhat of a liability (forcing him to take a ‘break’ from his own project) while taking even the most notorious proposals from corporations, including those that called Linux a “cancer”



  8. What It Would Take for Linus Torvalds to Leave Linux Foundation Without the Linux Trademark and Without Linux

    It's nice to think that the founder of Linux can just take his project and walk away, moving elsewhere, i.e. away from the Microsoft-employed executives who now "boss" him; but it's not that simple anymore



  9. The Past Does Not Go Away, Except From Short-Term Memories

    People who are drunk on power and money (sometimes not even their own money) like to portray themselves as the very opposite of what they are; but in the age of the Internet it's difficult to make the general public simply forget the past and "move on..."

  12. It's a Common Mistake and Common Misconception/Error to Treat Microsoft as Just Another 'Large Company' (or 'Big Tech')

    What's wrong about Microsoft isn't its size; what's wrong with Microsoft is its behaviour, which isn't just illegal (crimes are the norm) but also hugely unethical



  13. Lessons of Michael Arrington (About Microsoft)

    Microsoft and Bill Gates have a long history bullying their critics; the quote above (or below) shows how even people who advertise with Microsoft are becoming the target of abuse



  14. 'Best' of Both Worlds: GNU/Linux Freedom + Malware With Keyloggers and DRM

    Running a Microsoft-controlled GNU/Linux instance under Vista 10 ("Windows Subsystem for Linux") in the age of virtual machines, dual boot and containers makes as much sense as chopping some carrots to go with the veal meal to appease vegetarian diners



  15. First They Bribe the Employer, Media Lynch Mobs May Follow

    The 'cancel culture' lynch mobs, which leverage social causes (or marginalised groups), remain a convenient means by which to oust one's political/business opposition; but money too is a massive contributing factor and the more one has of it, the easier it is to control media narrative and subversive focus



  16. Upcoming Series Teaser: The Bribery Operation of William Henry Gates III

    Bribery goes a very long way when it comes to the megalomaniac who pays the media to portray him as the world's most generous person



  17. Windows Ransomware Must Not be Unspeakable When People Die in Large Numbers Due to That (and Windows Has Intentional Back Doors)

    Loss of electronic patient records, ransom and downtime among the severe consequences of deploying Microsoft inside hospitals; yet the media rarely names the real culprit (manslaughter charges theoretically possible) and nobody gets punished except those who offer real solutions

  21. EPO's Illegal Patents and Massive Corruption Go Unnoticed by Corporate Media and Sites That Cover Patent News

    Very major corruption scandals still emerge in Europe's second-largest institution and illegal patents get granted as well as promoted; somehow, perhaps miraculously, this no longer seems to bother anybody in the media (corruption and radical policies have been gradually 'normalised')



  22. Never Mind If GNU/Linux Works Better Inside Hospitals and Free Software Not Only Safer But Vastly More Efficient...

    With lives on the line one might expect hospitals to choose what's most secure and generally works best; but in practice there seems to be a leaning towards what bribes best



  23. Sick Alexander Ramsey is Using a Public Health Crisis to Lie About the Unitary Patent, Whose Fall Made Him Redundant and/or Obsolete

    Weaponised media continues to manufacture utterly ridiculous puff pieces for Team UPC, containing intentional lies from beginning to end

  25. They Came, They Saw, He Died

    Microsoft is an inherently sociopathic company; today's story of AppGet is an important reminder that Microsoft has not changed and isn't changing (Maui is another week-old example of trademark-hijacking tactics by Microsoft)



  26. Microsoft-Connected CloudGuru Doesn't Care About GNU/Linux and Now It's Gradually Killing the BSD/Linux-Centric Jupiter Broadcasting (Bought by Linux Academy)

    Assuming Docker is being 'killed' by Microsoft (or at least hijacked to push Windows, Azure and so on) while the GitHub-hosted (Microsoft) CloudGuru, whose co-founder comes from Microsoft, ‘finishes the job’ with Linux Academy and its assets, it’s time to take stock of a pattern/trend that ruins the media too



  27. What Happened to Docker is a Cautionary Tale About the Not-So-New Microsoft

    It’s hardly shocking that Docker collapsed (mass-scale layoffs) after the company had gotten close to Microsoft and got rid of its very own founder (a Red Hat veteran) while the software is being killed off/co-opted by Microsoft (all over the news this week; we’ve omitted links by intention as it’s only puff pieces, no investigative journalism anywhere); we only ask one thing: is anyone paying attention and, if so, what are the lessons learned?



  28. If You Want to Support and Follow Us 'Properly', Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is Most Reliable and Robust to Censorship

    Our longstanding position on social control media (we reject it and don't participate in it) is only proven ever more justified now that the mere idea of fact-checking is seen as controversial if not illegal
