Reporting Benoît Battistelli Before He Too ‘Pulls a Željko Topić’

Posted in Europe, Patents at 1:18 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

His next destruction target might be the French Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI)

Summary: The media is full of EPO-sponsored puff pieces about the EPO (very soon Joff Wild and Battistelli will promote software patents again), so we encourage readers to contact authorities in France and tell them what Battistelli has been doing in (or to) the European Patent Office (EPO)

THE EPO cannot simply put the past behind. EPO friends and colleagues of sacked and dead EPO employees refuse to let that happen. It’s not over. It’s not improving. The future of the EPO depends on its ability to hold saboteurs accountable. The saboteur in chief, Mr. Battistelli, is being mentioned to us quite a lot. He’s leaving in two months, but not before another act of abuse/corruption. With the relevant people from TAD named and with colleagues named we hope that some readers will initiate contact. These people need to know what Battistelli has done at the EPO. Among those named already:

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
armelle.rouly@saintgermainenlaye.fr

There’s also Johanna Julien. She’s the one in charge of TAD, where Battistelli diverts a lot of EPO budget, not to mention all the budget he granted to media in exchange for puff pieces. “Indeed,” one reader told us, “this is what I have been looking for. There is at least one specific mail address for the TAD: contact@tad-saintgermainenlaye.fr

“I guess employees have all similar addresses such as e.g. name.surname@saintgermainenlaye.fr. [we've already named TAD staff]

“Note there is no “tad-” before saintgermainenlaye.fr making it obvious that the TAD is part of the administration of the town. I guess all other emails have the same format. On the top of that there is the address of a managing director of the TAD: Sophie Bauer – Directrice du TAD sophie.bauer@saintgermainenlaye.fr

We do sincerely believe that some of these people don’t quite understand what is going on or what has been happening at the EPO. People ought to explain to them. We cannot sum this up in a sentence or a paragraph, having already published over 2,000 posts about it. We also have no French-speaking people/skills.

“We do sincerely believe that some of these people don’t quite understand what is going on or what has been happening at the EPO. People ought to explain to them.”“Feel free to tell [them] what do you think of the ignominious inventor of the year event and of the mess there getting in by collaborating with the “cancer” Battistelli,” our reader concluded.

For a short form/sort of summary, see this week’s "Battistelli Misuses EPO Budget to Saturate the European Media With Puff Pieces About His Event" (one among half a dozen or so articles on this subject). EPO budget is still being poured onto PR agencies, which yields new puff pieces like “Sugru inventor becomes first Irish EPO award nominee” or “UK Inventors Short-Listed for European Inventor Award 2018″ (again today). There’s yet another Microsoft puff piece. “The awards event will be held on June 7 in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Paris,” says the last sentence. They probably do not even know that this last sentence might be the most important one.

Joff Wild and BattistelliBattistelli now pretends — over in his blog (warning: epo.org link) — that stakeholders play a role at the EPO (which he is robbing). Liar in Chief? Or worse? What he does in Saint-Germain-en-Laye is a lot worse than lying. His blog post, which was promoted almost immediately, as usual, by the PR team, is about AIPPI (see "Today’s European Patent Office Works for Patent Extremists and for Team UPC Rather Than for Europe or for Innovation"). Also today, ahead of Battistelli's and IAM's promotion of software patents in Europe, Joff Wild is bragging about giving a platform to Benoît Battistelli (after Benoît Battistelli’s PR agency paid IAM). See how money travels? Whose money? EPO budget. “This not only features keynote speakers Anderi Iancu, Sue Siegel and Benoît Battistelli, but also an array of senior corporate IP business leaders,” Wild wrote. IAM always gravitates towards money and towards patent trolls, which it is grooming every day.
