Less Than 24 Hours Later the EPO Already Refuses to Obey Court Orders From ILO (Updated)

Posted in Europe, Patents at 12:35 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Familiar attitude: ILO-AT (Tribunal) decisions treated as though they do not exist to Battistelli

Trump ignoring judges

Summary: As expected by realists (or pessimists), the EPO continues to act as though it’s above the law and even judges suffer miscarriage of justice against them

THE PREVIOUS posts of ours regarding ILO (3 of them so far today [1, 2, 3]) showed an escalating level of severity. It doesn’t look as though ILO means anything to Battistelli. And it’s getting worse…

Patrick Corcoran (The Register unfortunately unmasked him already) tried to go to work today. First off he went to Haar, but they wouldn’t let him in the building. So, he then turned up at EPO headquarters, the Isar building, and he was told quite specifically that in spite of the ILO-AT judgments the house ban remains.

ILO-AT stated quite clearly yesterday that he should be reinstated immediately.

“They are obviously panicking now,” a source told us, “and I think things will get nasty.”

“First off he went to Haar, but they wouldn’t let him in the building. So, he then turned up at EPO headquarters, the Isar building, and he was told quite specifically that in spite of the ILO-AT judgments the house ban remains.”JUVE’s Mathieu Klos, who recently spoke to Christoph Ernst, optimistically wrote: “I expect reinstatement as a judge. That would both be consistent legally as well as with the new goal of the AC of restoringpeace at @EPOorg (as Chair Christopher Ernst state in a interview with JUVE).”

But does Ernst control Battistelli? Does the Organisation control the Office? Does the Office control Team Battistelli and Battistelli’s cabal? No. The tail wags the dog.

No word from IP Kat yet. The Kat is neutered. Nothing to see here, move along…

“I’m waiting for the IPKat’s reaction to the latest discomfiture before the ILO-AT,” this new comment has just said, speaking “of a certain French executive officer whose name shall not be pronounced and who has maybe deserved a “limogeage”…”

The EPO’s Twitter account has said nothing about it. Like we said at the very start, it had instead posted a distracting tweet about hiring interns for the Boards of Appeal almost at the same time as ILO’s session.

The latest UPC propaganda from the EPO came just a couple of hours ago and said that Europe would be suffering “fragmentation” without it (old FUD pattern regarding Android, Linux and so on).

We don’t suppose that the EPO will say anything about the scandal even though everyone inside and around the EPO speaks about it constantly for more than a day now.

Update: A couple of new comments confirm two of the things we wrote today. One comment has just said: “The board of Appeal Member turned up for work today and the head of EPO security told him that she was under instructions from ”above” to disregard the court order, and he will not be allowed in any EPO buildings.” Another (earlier) comment reaffirms what we wrote earlier today. “The judge is put back in place but is not re-appointed. In january he is not any longer a judge,” it says.

    It is actually much longer than just 24 hours.
    TAOIT tells the decision made to the defending organisation very shortly after the adoption, long before the public delivery. That is also why there are two different dates at the end of every decision.

    Monsieur le président chose to ignore the decision until it became public.
    This gave him quite a while to decide his strategy and prepare his case, while those relying on the decisions of TAOIT are still left in the dark of the outcome.

    Dr. Roy Schestowitz Reply:

    Do you happen to know if the PR/press strategy was also coordinated in advance? It’s barely covered in Dutch and German media…

What Else is New


  1. Linux Foundation Board Meeting

    More sponsored keynotes and tweets — like more sponsored articles (or “media partners”) — aren’t what the Linux Foundation really needs



  2. Links 14/10/2019: Linux 5.4 RC3, POCL 1.4, Python 3.8.0

    Links for the day



  3. This Week Techrights Crosses 26,000 Posts Milestone, 3 Weeks Before Turning 13 (2,000+ Posts/Year)

    A self-congratulatory post about another year that's passed (without breaks from publishing) and another milestone associated with posting volume



  4. No Calls to "Remove Gates" From the Board (Over a Real Scandal/Crime), Only to "Remove Stallman" (Over Phony Distraction From the Former)

    Jeffrey Epstein's connections to Bill Gates extend well beyond Gates himself; other people inside Microsoft are closely involved as well, so Microsoft might want to cut ties with its co-founder before it becomes a very major mess



  5. “The Stupidest [Patent/Tax] Policy Ever”

    It’s pretty clear that today’s European patent system has been tilted grossly in favour of super-rich monopolists and their facilitators (overzealous law firms and ‘creative’ accountants) as opposed to scientists



  6. Meme: Software Patents at the EPO

    The evolution of “technical effect” nonsense at the EPO

  8. Firm of Microsoft's Former Litigation Chief Uses Microsoft-Connected Patent Lawsuit Against GNU/Linux (GNOME Foundation) for New Breed of FUD Campaigns

    The patent troll of Bill Gates and Nathan Myhrvold has fed a patent troll that's attacking GNU/Linux and a firm owned by Microsoft's former litigation chief says it proves "Open Source Software Remains a Target"



  9. "Widespread Adoption" (Did You Mean: Takeover by Monopolies?)

    "Quite a few of them are people that would rather replace David with Goliath, just because he's bigger. Quite a few are already taking money from Goliath."

  11. Bill's Media Strategy Amid GatesGate

    There are many ways by which to game the media’s news cycle — an art mastered by the groper in chief



  12. Hard-Core Micro-Soft

    The word "core" is increasingly being (mis)used to portray user-hostile proprietary software as something more benign if not "open"



  13. Free Software Timeline and Federation: When Free Software Advocacy/Support is a Monopoly Expansion Becomes Necessary

    Support for Software Freedom — like support for Free software (think Red Hat/IBM and systemd) — should be decentralised and compartmentalised to make the movement stronger and adaptable



  14. Projection Tactics

    The corporate media hasn't been doing its job lately; it has systematically defamed the wrong people, perhaps in an effort to distract from 'big fish'



  15. Meme: Richard Stallman Irrelevant

    Saint IGNUcius — Richard Stallman — just isn’t the Saint Bill Gates is

  18. The New York Times About the Real Epstein-Software Scandal (Nothing to Do With Stallman)

    The media is belatedly catching up with and covering the real MIT scandal which extends far beyond MIT



  19. Openwashing Reports Are on Hold

    The need to stress Software Freedom and shun all that "open" nonsense has quickly become apparent; some of the people who oppose Stallman turn out to be "Open Source" proponents who don't even value freedom of expression (free speech)



  20. Support the GNU Project and Support Free Speech

    Techrights is loyal to Software Freedom and those eager to promote it; it cannot, however, support those who don’t support free speech



  21. Today's EPO is Working for Patent Trolls and the 'Aye Pee' (IP) 'Industry' Instead of Science

    The EPO is making allegiances and alliances with groups that represent neither science nor businesses but instead push for monopolies, litigation and extortion; lawlessness appears to have become the EPO's very objective instead of what it intends to tackle



  22. The Campinos Car Crash

    The EPO is crashing and we know who’s to blame other than Battistelli



  23. Software Patents (or Monopolies on Algorithms) Are Not 'Property' and They're Not Even Legally Valid

    The EPO insists that it's OK to grant patents on just about everything and propaganda terms are being leveraged to justify this dangerous attitude



  24. The EPO's Universal Patent Injustice Concealed With Polyglottic Tricks

    The EPO is fooling nobody; it's desperate to hide the very simple fact that Battistelli did something illegal and over the past few years every decision issued by the EPO was legally invalid (as per the EPC)



  25. Microsoft Tweets in Linux Platforms

    This observation about the Linux Foundation seems very appropriate (and true) now that Linux.com’s sole editor is (re)posting Microsoft tweets (shades of Jono Bacon)



  26. Links 12/10/2019: Rspamd 2.0, Kdenlive 19.08.2, Plasma Mobile Progress, FreeBSD 12.1 RC1

  29. António Campinos, With Diplomatic Immunity, Continues Breaking the Law by Granting Patents the EU and EPC Forbade

    The EPO shows how immunity leads to crimes being committed with total impunity; at this point the EPO's immunity must be removed and judges should be permitted to do their job, which is enforcing the law



  30. EPO is Trying to 'Force-Feed' Europe Some Fake Patents by Hijacking Courts

    Having granted a lot of dubious European Patents (to maintain constant growth despite a decreasing number of applications) the EPO seeks to subvert the court system; so far only the constitutions and the laws are being subverted — to the point where these ambitions are collapsing in Europe’s highest courts
