Christoph Ernst Does Not Boss Benoît Battistelli Like He’s Supposed to, But Battistelli’s Bosses/Colleagues in France Can be Contacted

Posted in Europe, Patents at 6:15 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“An earthquake would be needed for the Administrative Council, where each of the 35 member states has one vote, not to support my major proposals.”Autocrat Battistelli, who is alleged to be 'buying' the votes of small member states

Summary: The ongoing abuses of Battistelli merit collective action because the latest developments indicate that it may be about to escalate further

THE CHAIRMAN, Christoph Ernst (‘Herrnst’), is supposed to supervise Battistelli at the EPO, but as we expected all along, he quickly became Battistelli’s de facto protector. Starting tomorrow, Judge Corcoran will be under Battistelli’s control; he is alleged to have contacted officials in France. “Of course no publication in Journal Officiel,” said this new comment yesterday, “but I know my source and Mr Corcoran is back in DG1 under hierarchical supervision of Battistelli…”

This is seriously problematic and we think that it’s about time people send E-mails to people with actual leverage over the autocrat. New Year’s eve seems like a good point for New Year’s resolutions and holding Battistelli accountable is a well overdue cause.

One of our readers did some of the research and found out who can be contacted, along with some relevant information. To quote verbatim:

I would like to thank you for all the excellent work you have done this year, again. You are nearly the only independent source of information on EPO related matters. 2017 has been decisive in the “perception” of how despotic, incompetent, ruthless, corrupt etc. the management of Team Battistelli is.

However a public perception of the problematic doesn’t bring directly a solution to recover a full-functioning EPO. Team Battistelli is like cancer: stronger healing protocols, similar to chemotherapy and surgery, will be unavoidable, And it is not clear that this office may ever return to a normal state of affairs.

If you have time you may watch the videos of the town council meetings in St Germain en Laye where M. Battistelli is a town councilor and deputy mayor (in charge of culture!). It is remarkable to see that the otherwise big mouth has nearly nothing to say in a democratic context!

You may have a look here. When watching the videos, I was impressed (I really mean it) by the polite and friendly tone of the Mayor and generally of the town councilors. What a disparity with the perceived constant lack of education exhibited by Team Battistelli. Yes another world is possible.

Battistelli boredCertainly not all town councilors are aware that the person in the last row is de facto a criminal not sitting behind bars because he claims and enjoys (diplomatic) immunity. He was elected 6th deputy mayor in charge of culture during a vote held on 19.10.2017 in a session of the town council. Watch the ballot count. The election was far from being unanimous. Many blank and spoilt ballots. I guess that the councilors from another political side didn’t vote for him. I firmly believe that transparency is of the utmost importance and that the councilors should be aware of the existence of Techrights.

An e-mail would suffice. The addresses of the town councilors have this form: name.surname@saintgermainenlaye.fr
Here a comprehensive list classified by political groups. To be noted: Mr. Battistelli belongs to group n°. 1 “Union pour St Germain”.

  1. On the Internet, Trust Should Not Become Centralised

    “Trust” is a word that lost its meaning in the era of “TPM” and fancier names for 'Palladium'; we need to reject this idea that computers need to check with Microsoft if the operating system is trusted (not just Windows!), check with Gulag/Chrome if a Web site is trusted, and whether it's OK to run some application/s on one's own computer (as if Jim Zemlin et al get to decide what is trusted)



  2. Microsoft-Connected Publishers Suffer and Perish With Microsoft (While Peddling 'Fake News' for Their Beloved Sponsor)

    IDG and other fake news outlets/networks/sites (selling to companies flattering articles about themselves or renting out 'news space' to them, not just ad space) want us to think Microsoft is doing very well, but it's just that same old Ponzi scheme

  5. [Meme] EPO: Pursuing an Eastern and Western District of Europe (for Patent Trolls and Software Patents)

    With the EPO so flagrantly lying and paying for misinformation maybe we should expect Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos to have delusions of grandeur… such as presiding over the Eastern and Western District of Europe, just like Mr. Gilstrap and Mr. Albright (political appointment by Donald Trump, ushering in “the swamp”)



  6. Gemini at 2,000: 86% of Capsules Use Self-Signed Certificate, Just Like the Techrights Web Site (WWW)

    As shown in the charts above (updated an hour ago), the relative share of ‘Linux’ Foundation (LE/LF; same thing, same office) in the capsules’ certificates has decreased over time; more and more (in terms of proportion) capsules choose to sign their own certificate/s; the concept of ‘fake security’ (centralisation and consolidation) should be rejected universally because it leaves nobody safe except plutocrats



  7. [Meme] UPC: Many Lies as Headlines, Almost Exclusively in Publishers Sponsored by EPO and Team UPC to Produce Fake News (Lobbying Through Misinformation)

    Lest we forget that EPO dictators, like Pinky and the Brainless Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, have long littered the EPO's official Web site as well as publishers not directly connected to the EPO (but funded by it) with disinformation about the UPC



  8. EPO as the 'Ministry of Truth' of Team UPC and Special Interests

    The 'Ministry of Truth' of the patent world is turning the EPO's Web site into a propaganda mill, a misinformation farm, and a laughing stock with stock photography



  9. Microsoft 'Delighted' by Windows 11 (Vista 11) Usage, Which is Only 1% Three Months After Official Launch and Six Months After Release Online

    Microsoft boosters such as Bogdan Popa and Mark Hachman work overtime on distraction from the failure Vista 11 has been (the share of Windows continues to fall relative to other platforms)

    Microsoft keeps promoting the utterly false concept that everything is not secure and there's nothing that can be done about it (hence, might as well stay with Windows, whose insecurity is even intentional)



  12. At Long Last: 2,000 Known Gemini Capsules!

  16. Why the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is Still Just a Fantasy and the UPC's Fake News Mill Merely Discredits the Whole Patent 'Profession'

    Patents and science used to be connected; but now that the patent litigation 'sector' is hijacking patent offices (and even courts in places like Texas) it's trying to shove a Unified Patent Court (UPC) down the EU's throat under the disingenuous cover of "community" or "unity"

    The diaspora to Gemini Protocol or the transition to alternative 'webs' is underway; a linearly growing curve suggests that inertia/momentum is still there and we reap the benefits of early adoption of Gemini



  19. [Meme] Get Ready for Unified Patent Court (UPC) to be Taken to Court

    The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent system that’s crafted to empower EPO thugs isn’t legal and isn’t constitutional either; even a thousand fake news 'articles' (deliberate misinformation or disinformation) cannot change the simple facts because CJEU isn’t “trial by media”



  20. The EPO Needs High-Calibre Examiners, Not Politicians Who Pretend to Understand Patents and Science

    Examiners are meant to obstruct fake patents or reject meritless patent applications; why is it that working conditions deteriorate for those who are intellectually equipped to do the job?

  26. Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part XV — Cover-Up and Defamation

    Defamation of one’s victims might be another offence to add to the long list of offences committed by Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot, Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley; attempting to discredit the police report is a new low and can get Mr. Graveley even deeper in trouble (Microsoft protecting him only makes matters worse)



  27. [Meme] Alexander Ramsay and Team UPC Inciting Politicians to Break the Law and Violate Constitutions, Based on Misinformation, Fake News, and Deliberate Lies Wrapped up as 'Studies'

    The EPO‘s law-breaking leadership (Benoît Battistelli, António Campinos and their corrupt cronies), helped by liars who don't enjoy diplomatic immunity, are cooperating to undermine courts across the EU, in effect replacing them with EPO puppets who are patent maximalists (Europe’s equivalents of James Rodney Gilstrap and Alan D Albright, a Donald Trump appointee, in the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, respectively)



  28. Has the Administrative Council Belatedly Realised What Its Job in the European Patent Organisation Really Is?

    The "Mafia" which took over the EPO (the EPO's own workers call it "Mafia") isn't getting its way with a proposal, so it's preventing the states from even voting on it!



  29. [Meme] Team UPC is Celebrating a Pyrrhic Victory

    Pyrrhic victory best describes what's happening at the moment (it’s a lobbying tactic, faking/staging things to help false prophecies be fulfilled, based on hopes and wishes alone), for faking something without bothering to explain the legal basis is going to lead to further escalations and complaints (already impending)
