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.

    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

  2. How Long Can the EPO Bend the Rules Before the Avalanche of Invalid Software Patents?

    A 35 U.S.C. § 101/SCOTUS moment in Europe will likely squash loads of abstract European Patents granted by the EPO; shouldn’t the EPO foresee this and immediately cease granting such obviously bogus patents, whose main beneficiary is a bunch of patent trolls?



  3. Battistelli Trashed 223 Millions (of Stakeholders' Euros) on a System That Destroyed the European Patent Office and Made Few Private Corporations a Lot Richer

    A quarter of a billion euros later the EPO finally admits in private that this was a massive failure

    Links for the day



  5. What Happened in the United States Now Happens in Europe: Lots of Patents Turn Out to Be Bunk, Fake, Bogus, Invalid and Thus Worthless

    Worthless patents — not opposition to such patents — are the greatest threat to the legitimacy of the patent system, yet bureaucrats fail to heed the warning in the name of short-term profits



  6. Stephen Rowan's and Nellie Simon's Letter to EPO Staff: eDossier Has “Not Reached the Required Quality Levels.”

    We've just commented on it; here is the raw letter in full, explaining that eDossier and related frameworks will be abandoned entirely and indefinitely within less than a fortnight



  7. Search Matters Not at the European Patent Office

    The EPO has found out that "System Battistelli" has been catastrophic for the quality of patents; it stops short of openly admitting it as such and in fact it keeps the message strictly confidential (explained to insiders, who will inevitably notice a system being abandoned)



  8. António Campinos Still Needs to Undo Battistelli's Union-Busting Activities at the EPO

    Solidarity and support for Laurent Prunier are needed because the new French president lacks empathy even for fellow Frenchmen whose sole 'crime' is that they represented EPO staff

  10. António Campinos Still Needs to Hold Team Battistelli Accountable for Illegally Bringing Weapons to the EPO

    It is imperative that, in order to repair the reputation of the European Patent Office (EPO), António Campinos should pursue accountability for the managers who brought Benalla and firearms to the Office (very serious breach of German law, jail sentence included)

  12. Amazon's Patent Policy Should be Enough of a Reason to Boycott Amazon and AWS

    There are many things to criticise Amazon and its founder for; but rarely does the mainstream media bring up the company's appalling patent policy



  13. Don't Use Cloudflare Because You Impose This on People Who Least Want It

    Reasons to stop making the World Wide Web so heavily dependent on some dubious companies like Cloudflare, which already has a worrisome track record



  14. How Many/Most EPO Examiners View 'President' António Campinos

    Based on what readers/insiders have told us, there’s a prevalent perception that António Campinos is afraid of (thus controlled/directed by) Bergot, who is still doing Battistelli’s biddings at the European Patent Office (EPO)



  15. Techrights' Priorities Over the Years

    An old priority of ours, eliminating software patents in the United States, is no longer quite so relevant because such patents are perishing in US courts, with or without outside intervention such as activism



  16. Courts in Disagreement: Warning on Wrongly-Granted European Patents and the Looming Collapse of All Software Patents in Europe

    By devaluing patents and reducing their perceived worth (as is happening in China and Europe) patent offices risk decreasing participation in the very system they fundamentally depend on



  17. Computing Will Not Necessarily Make the World a Better Place

    The vision of "happy world" (because each person has a so-called 'smart' 'phone') is a yuppie delusion that overlooks business models and corporate interests



  18. EPO Grants Fake European Patents -- Including Software Patents -- and European Courts Keep Rejecting These

    The demise of the legitimacy or perceived validity of European Patents is measurable and the system isn't the same anymore; the EPO makes no effort to change this for the better, either



  19. Nobody But Patent Trolls and Litigators Will Benefit From the Corruption of the European Patent Office

    IAM, EPO leadership, Iancu and the rest of these raiders are enabling corruption and facilitating or supporting a racket; that money they collect comes at the expense of future victims of their "clients" or "customers" (that's what they call applicants, to whom they grant dubious monopolies as a matter of urgency)



  20. WSL is a Misleading Acronym/Name Because There's No Linux in It, It's Just Windows

    When Microsoft says "Linux" (as in "Microsoft loves Linux") what it actually means is Windows and/or Azure

  25. “EPO Lawlessness Again”

    Blackberry uses bogus European Patents (on software) for lawsuits; "all of them pure software patents. Patents on programs for computers as such," as Müller puts it



  26. Unitary Patent (UPC) is All About Imposing Patent Maximalists' Ideology of Greed and Self Interest on Courts in the Name of 'Unification' or 'Consistency' or 'Community'

    Pushers of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) are upset that they don’t always get their way when independent judges get to decide; as it turns out, many European Patents are just fake patents, more so under António Campinos
