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)

Johanna Julien contact

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.

    The infamous pair of monopolists, Microsoft and IBM, are both suffering during the COVID-19 lock-downs (no matter how hard they try to spin it and/or distract from it)



  5. IBM (Red Hat) Lectured FSF That It Needed More Diversity, But Was It Looking at the Mirror? IBM and Red Hat Are Even Less Diverse.

    Techrights examines Red Hat’s (IBM’s) hypocritical claims about the Free Software Foundation, founded by Richard Stallman back when IBM was the “big scary monopolist”; IBM employees were prominent among those pushing to oust Stallman from the GNU Project, which he founded, as well

    That old anti-RMS letter, which called for his removal (or resignation) from GNU (RMS is the founder of the GNU Project), as characterised by metadata of signatories



  8. When You Realise People Who Don't Support RMS Do Not Really Support GNU, Either

    The (in)famous letter against Richard Stallman (RMS), which was signed by many Red Hat employees with Microsoft (GitHub) accounts, doesn’t look particularly good in light of recent revelations/findings; it increasingly looks like IBM simply wants Microsoft-hosted and “permissively” licensed stuff, just like another project it announced yesterday and another that it promoted yesterday



  9. The Gates Press (GatesGate) -- Part III: What Happens When You Tell the Truth About Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation

    One might not expect this from a so-called 'charity'; the Gates Foundation's critics are often met with unprecedented aggression, threats and retribution, which make one wonder if it's really a charity or a greedy cult of personalities (Bill and Melinda)

  16. The Gates Press (GatesGate) -- Part II: When Media That You Bribe Calls All Your Critics 'Conspiracy Theorists' (to Keep Them Silenced, Marginalised)

    The assault on the media by Bill Gates is a subject not often explored by the media (maybe because a lot of it is already bribed by him); but we're beginning to gather new and important evidence that explains how critics are muzzled (even fired) and critical pieces spiked, never to see the light of day anywhere



  17. GitHub is Not Sharing But 'Theft' by Microsoft

    Microsoft buying GitHub does not demonstrate that Microsoft loves Open Source (GitHub is not Open Source and may never be) but that it loves monopoly and coercion (what GitHub is all about and why it must be rejected)



  18. The Huge Damage (Except for Patent Lawyers' Bottom Line) Caused by Fake European Patents

    The European Patent Office (EPO) keeps granting fake patents that cause a lot of real harm (examiners are pressured to play along and participate in this unlawful agenda); nobody is happy except those who profit from needless, frivolous lawsuits



  19. Red Hat/IBM Got 'Tired' of RMS. Is It Getting 'Tired' of GPL/Copyleft Too?

    After contributing to the cancellation of Richard Stallman (RMS) based on some falsehoods perpetuated in the media we're seeing the sort of thing one might expect from IBM (more so now that it totally controls Fedora and RHEL)

    What "professional" nowadays means in the context of coding and honest assessment of technical work



  23. Weakening GNU/Linux by Disempowering Its Leaders and Founders, Replacing Them With Microsoft Employees and GNU/Linux-Hostile Moles

    The coup to remove (or remove power from) Stallman and Torvalds, the GNU and Linux founders respectively, is followed by outsourcing of their work to Microsoft’s newly-acquired monopoly (GitHub) and appointment of Microsoft workers or Microsoft-friendly people, shoehorning them into top roles under the disingenuous guise of "professionalism"



  24. Sword Group Violates Its Own Commitment by Working for the EPO

    The European Patent Office (EPO) keeps outsourcing its work to outside contractors (for-profit private entities) to the tune of hundreds of millions if not billions — all this without any oversight

    Freedom requires a GNU/Linux distro other than Ubuntu, which seems unwilling or unable/incapable of speaking about and promoting the ideals of GNU/Linux

    Red Hat is conspicuously silent at these critical times (in its home country); Must be too busy hailing and cashing in on Trump's military (state) while dishing out shallow and self-contradictory diversity PR/fluff…

    Microsoft has spent almost two decades dropping supercomputers vapourware on the media, but those misinformation dumps always turn out to be 100% hot air, no substance
