Another Blow for the Unitary Patent (UPC) as More Delays Are Confirmed, Court Won’t Rule on Constitutional Issues Any Time Soon

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 7:32 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Bonus: CIPA is now fully embracing Battistelli, whose abuses are beneficial to Team UPC

UPC boat

Summary: The terrible state of the Unified Patent Court has just gotten even more terrible; The Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), however, continues to tell a lot of lies and even joins hands with Battistelli to tell those lies to politicians

THE EPO‘s management is desperately looking for allies. Including IP Kat, which it already threatened for ‘daring’ to publish true information. CIPA’s leadership, which took leadership positions at IP Kat last year (relinquished earlier this year), is already posing for photos with Battistelli. CIPA is basically trying to ruin the British industry for the sake of litigation ‘business’ (to be further boosted by a UPC-like framework). Battistelli’s EPO has already begun corrupting British academia [1, 2], paying some universities to produce lobbying material with which to lobby the German court. How much more corrupt can the EPO get? Or low will it stoop?

“The EPO has already submitted its lies, no doubt bolstered by paid-for ‘academics’ (willing to sell out for some EPO budget).”According to JUVE’s editor, the “German Constitutional Court expects one more amicus brief. Date to submit it has been extended for German Bundestag to 31st of January, a spokesman confirmed to JUVE…”

So here we go. Delays again. The EPO has already submitted its lies, no doubt bolstered by paid-for ‘academics’ (willing to sell out for some EPO budget).

Thomas Adam responded to JUVE. He is a Simmons & Simmons patent litigator from Munich (much to gain financially from UPC litigation). He wrote: “No wonder since I am told that Bundestag took the decision to instruct counsel only around 12 December, 2017. Of course, they can now piggy-back on the briefs that have been published by now.”

“I personally think that CIPA has just committed reputational suicide by publicly sucking up to Battistelli.”Mr. Adam is no longer known as “UPC tracker” (he changed his Twitter username), perhaps seeing the writings on the wall (not enough to “track”). Even those people — deep down inside at least — are begrudgingly giving up on the UPC while calling “trolls” and "idiots" those with sobering messages.

“Forever delays for UPC discussions means people move on,” I told him, and “Battistelli is out soon…”

I personally think that CIPA has just committed reputational suicide by publicly sucking up to Battistelli. Watch what they wrote in Twitter (as if the Liar in Chief is a trustworthy voice of authority): “President Battistelli of @EPOorg makes it clear – #Brexit will have NO EFFECT on the work of UK patent attorneys at the EPO” (it will actually, as they themselves admitted thousands of times before).

“Brexit would mean less business from the EU. One of their key skills is the English language; after Brexit (if it happens) things change profoundly for the legal ‘industry’ that’s centered in and around London.”Who are they kidding?

Seriously.

Brexit would mean less business from the EU. One of their key skills is the English language; after Brexit (if it happens) things change profoundly for the legal ‘industry’ that’s centered in and around London. Heck, maybe Ireland will get a lot of their ‘business’. Here is what CIPA wrote in its own Web site about what it did with Battistelli:

They discussed progress made by the UK on the ratification of the Unified Patent Court Agreement and the likelihood of ratification in the coming months. CIPA and other leading UK IP organisations called on the UK Government to provide legal certainty regarding the UPC in a paper published last month

What they mean to say is that they are lobbying Sam Gyimah et al, probably telling them the usual lies about the UPC (behind closed doors). Watch what fellow patent extremists are writing, linking to this new video from CIPA. The title of the video, in its own right, is a lie: “European patent work unaffected by Brexit” (Nope! A lie!).

The shambles at the EPO are rather costly; a lot of talent has been lost, reputation was destroyed, budget was wasted corrupting media and academia, and a private pub was secretly set up for Mr. Battistelli at the expense of the Office. As one reader of ours put it some hours ago, the expenses go even further (lining the pockets of lawyers):

If one considers the sum total of the payments (reimbursements, back payments, moral damages, legal expenses etc.) to the complainants imposed by the ILO-AT to the EPO in just one session, the 125th, one realizes that it is over half a million Euros.

This is user’s money that the mis-management, arrogance and disregard of the rule of law of Mr Battistelli and his team of incompetent persons (Lutz, Bergot, Topić etc.) has wasted in unnecessary disputes with the employees of the EPO.

There’s more to come in the next sessions.

These alleged managers are a disgrace for the Organisation, which before their arrival was financially and legally healthy,

A couple of years ago, according to Dr. Glyn Moody’s detailed report, “the EPO’s spokesperson mentioned the imminent arrival of the unitary patent system as an important reason for revising the EPO’s internal rules…”

Never forget the correlation between the UPC and the attacks on EPO staff.

    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”



  9. 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

    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

  22. 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')



  23. 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

  26. 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)



  27. 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



  28. 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?

    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
