Holding Benoît Battistelli Accountable After the EPO

Posted in Europe, Patents at 10:11 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Benoît Battistelli is also working as a politician

Battistelli boredSummary: The many abuses and offenses committed by Mr. Battistelli whilst he enjoyed diplomatic immunity can and should be brought up as that immunity expires in two months; a good start would be contacting his colleagues, who might not be aware of the full spectrum of his abuses

THE insiders at the EPO all know that their President is involved in French politics. This is not allowed, but then again, Battistelli enjoys diplomatic immunity. He feels and acts like he’s untouchable. He may soon bring millions of euros (EPO budget) to his home down in clear violation of many rules — a serious issue which we encourage French-speaking readers to report to the following people (Battistelli’s colleagues at Saint-Germain-en-Laye):

arnaud.pericard@saintgermainenlaye.fr
ecretariat.elus@saintgermainenlaye.fr
anne.gommier@saintgermainenlaye.fr
monique.dumont@saintgermainenlaye.fr
patrick.lazard@saintgermainenlaye.fr
pierre.degeorge@saintgermainenlaye.fr
angeline.silly@saintgermainenlaye.fr
pierre.camasses@saintgermainenlaye.fr
pascal.leveque@saintgermainenlaye.fr
didier.rouxel@saintgermainenlaye.fr
agnes.cerighelli@saintgermainenlaye.fr

Battistelli will be gone in 2 months, but he should definitely be held accountable for his many abuses. They are well documented and once he loses diplomatic immunity he can perhaps be held accountable. Many people can probably sue him, too. Maybe even victims like staff representatives and Judge Corcoran from the EPO’s Boards of Appeal.

“Battistelli will be gone in 2 months, but he should definitely be held accountable for his many abuses.”Speaking of the EPO’s Boards of Appeal, they have repeatedly complained about Battistelli, who keeps breaking the EPO’s rules. With two months left to sack him — something which is unlikely to happen — action is now imperative. Don’t let such a destructive person get away with sending millions of euros to his existing and next employer. His colleagues at Saint-Germain-en-Laye need to at least become aware of what he’s doing. If his “padrone” Nicolas Sarkozy can be punished almost a decade late, why not him as well?

The EPO spent the day yesterday writing some more fluff about Battistelli’s victims, whom he sent to Haar as (collective) punishment. It said: “Read about the five-year objective of the EPO’s Boards of Appeal as well as their performance in the past year. [] Here’s how you can share your opinion on proposed changes to the Rules of Procedure of the Boards of Appeal.”

“The EPO spent the day yesterday writing some more fluff about Battistelli’s victims, whom he sent to Haar as (collective) punishment.”They just try to give the false impression that things are rosy and the public is in control. This is nonsense.

Less than a day ago a patent maximalists’ site wrote about “Guidance on the Therapeutic Methods Exclusion,” courtesy of the Technical Board of Appeal (TBA) of the European Patent Office (EPO), which Battistelli — and by extension the EPO — had been attacking mercilessly. To quote:

The therapeutic methods exclusion is often problematic to navigate. In T 0699/12, the Technical Board of Appeal (TBA) of the European Patent Office (EPO) has provided some useful guidance on its application. In an opposition before the Opposition Division, the division held that the patent in suit (which was for a method for performing in vivo dosimetry) was invalid pursuant to Art 53(c) of the European Patent Convention (EPC).

Hours ago the EPO also promoted a Seattle (US) event of the EPO, promoting software patents abroad (in another continent!), not to mention patents on life. As the EPO put it some hours ago: “We have prepared a series of plenary sessions, panel discussions and break-out workshops on the patentability of life sciences inventions at the EPO.”

“It’s never too late for justice to be served.”The EPO has become a threat not only to Europeans but also to people living outside Europe. Battistelli’s regime is like a think tank of patent maximalism — the UPC notwithstanding — and the Boards of Appeal are unable to stop that because Battistelli keeps intimidating and punishing them. Judge Corcoran is alleged to have communicated with people in Saint-Germain-en-Laye; this is perhaps why Battistelli attacked him so viciously. We strongly encourage readers who can write in French to E-mail the above people with information about the European Inventor Award, informing them not only about improper venue selection but also many of Battistelli’s other abuses (we’ve lost count of them). It’s never too late for justice to be served.
