In the Latest EPO Official Journal (April’s Publication) Battistelli’s Next Employer is Mentioned Literally Hundreds of Times and Promoted in 20 Pages out of 75 Pages

Posted in Europe, Patents at 6:39 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The EPO’s publications, including the EPO’s Web site, have deteriorated. They’re nowadays a shrine to Battistelli’s ‘Empire’.

Official Journal April 2018

Summary: The EPO seems to have devolved into a playground of Battistelli rather than anything resembling a professional patent office; the evidence of this is abundant and pretty revealing

THE USPTO is sort of connected to the US government (we covered it last month; it’s a little complicated), so there’s still some level of accountability there. The same cannot be said about Europe because of the EU’s relatively young age and the patent office which predates the EU not by much. National delegates, who can be corrupted by money (e.g. their votes 'bought'), cannot be trusted for their integrity, especially when many of them just boil down to heads of national patent offices. Staff’s lost rights are a symptom of this immaturity (no effective safeguards in place) and the high level of corruption at the EPO is almost to be expected, especially when appointing to the leadership a lot of the ‘Nicolas Sárközy pack’, as we last noted last night.

“Judging by the number of times it’s mentioned in the EPO’s Official Journal, Team Battistelli might again have (mis)used EPO resources to promote employers of Battistelli other than the EPO.”Battistelli and Campinos, two Frenchmen who have known each other for a long time, will soon swap seats in France. We’re talking about CEIPI. CEIPI staff isn’t happy; we’ve been told so. Judging by the number of times it’s mentioned in the EPO’s Official Journal, Team Battistelli might again have (mis)used EPO resources to promote employers of Battistelli other than the EPO. CEIPI is going to suffer from association with Battistelli, who in addition to his EPO scandals seems to have entangled himself in a web of scandals in French politics, as well…

Reading EPO material is no simple task. The Gazette, for example, is a massive pile of lies from start to finish (I went through the ‘torture’ of reading it this time around). This “Official Journal April 2018″ (warning: epo.org link) was released days ago, then promoted by the EPO’s online accounts. Almost half of it is CEIPI ‘spam’. Is this normal? Or a new thing? We’ve asked some people for their opinion. To me, having paged through the whole thing, the “Official Journal” (of the EPO) looks more like a CEIPI brochure/syllabus.

“Almost half of it is CEIPI ‘spam’.”Based on the archives of the Municipal Council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, there are yet more scandals implicating Battistelli over there. The man has quite a history there and it’s not exactly flattering. What we wrote yesterday led to the following comment:

The future

the last guest post is excellent! 2 observations about it.

1. The system Battistelli is always the same whether in Munich or At Germain en Laye: foul play.

2. The small article in the press is a self fulfilling prophecy, isn’t it? I guess it was prepared and sent in advance to the journalist and that the “news” was written by Battistelli’s political group.

And you see how unreliable they’re to publish this puff piece in advance. Shame on them!

3. However there is another prophecy in this article: Battistelli brutally departing from the EPO. Not fulfilled yet although nearly 7000 individuals are hoping for it. I firmly believe that this part wasn’t a mistake but a try to give perception of independence between St Germain en Laye and Munich/EPO.

4. Last, not least: the connection between the terms Battistelli and brutality sounds familiar

“There are more interesting revelations from the archives of the Municipal Council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye,” a reader told us. This is the subject of ongoing research. Will Battistelli be held belatedly accountable like his 'padrone' Nicolas Sárközy? We shall see, but all we can do is highlight the facts; Battistelli’s diplomatic immunity expires within less than a couple of months.

“Battistelli nearly doubled the number of patent grants (number of applications remained quite steady), in effect overwhelming the system with bad or questionable grants.”EPO insiders nowdays refer to Benoît Battistelli as "the cancer" and speaking of cancer, amid the transition towards INPI-type ‘examination’ (i.e. none) patents are being granted on cancer treatments [1, 2] and Cantargia, having published this press release yesterday, is under the false impression/assumption that lack of appeals to a patent grant in a ‘patent-printing machine’ of Battistelli means the patents have merit. Here is what it wrote: “Cantargia AB (“Cantargia”) today announces that the company’s European patents covering antibody treatment of leukemia as well as solid tumours will remain in force based on the European Patent Office (“EPO”) communication that no appeals have been received during the formal appeal period.”

Battistelli nearly doubled the number of patent grants (number of applications remained quite steady), in effect overwhelming the system with bad or questionable grants. The damage this will cause to Europe if not the Office as well may take several decades to property measure/calculate (patents last decades). Battistelli will probably have died by then.

    Before we proceed to other countries in the region, let’s not forget or let’s immortalise the role played by Croatia in the EPO (memes are memorable)

    The EPO‘s Administrative Council was gamed by a gangster from Croatia; today we start the segment of the series which deals with the Balkan region



  5. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XXI: The Balkan League – The Doyen and His “Protégée”

    The EPO‘s circle of corruption in the Balkan region will be the focus of today’s (and upcoming) coverage, showing some of the controversial enablers of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, two deeply corrupt French officials who rapidly drive the Office into the ground for personal gain (at Europe’s expense!)

    Gemini protocol is becoming a widely adopted de facto standard for many who want to de-clutter the Internet by moving away from the World Wide Web and HTML (nowadays plagued by JavaScript, CSS, and many bloated frameworks that spy)



  11. Unlawful Regimes Even Hungary and Poland Would Envy

    There’s plenty of news reports about Polish and Hungarian heads of states violating human rights, but never can one find criticism of the EPO’s management doing the same (the mainstream avoids this subject altogether); today we examine how that area of Europe voted on the illegal "Strike Regulations" of Benoît Battistelli



  12. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XX: The Visegrád Group

    The EPO‘s unlawful “Strike Regulations” (which helped Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos illegally crush or repress EPO staff) were supported by only one among 4 Visegrád delegates



  13. [Meme] IBM Has Paid ZDNet to Troll the Community

    Over the past few weeks ZDNet has constantly published courses with the word "master" in their headlines (we caught several examples; a few are shown above); years ago this was common, also in relation to IBM itself; clearly IBM thinks that the word is racially sensitive and offensive only when it's not IBM using the word and nowadays IBM pays ZDNet — sometimes proxying through the Linux Foundation — to relay this self-contradictory message whose objective is to shame programmers, Free software communities etc. (through guilt they can leverage more power and resort to projection tactics, sometimes outright slander which distracts)



  14. [Meme] ILO Designed to Fail: EPO Presidents Cannot be Held Accountable If ILOAT Takes Almost a Decade to Issue a Simple Ruling

    Language inside the EPO is misleading. Francophones Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos casually misuse the word “social”.

    Just as Benoît Battistelli had a profound misunderstanding of the concept of “social democracy” his mate seems to completely misunderstand what a “social gesture” is (should have asked his father)

    Today we look more closely at how Baltic states were rendered 'voting fodder' by large European states, looking to rubber-stamp new and oppressive measures which disempower the masses



  25. [Meme] Don't Mention 'Brexit' to Team UPC

    It seems perfectly clear that UPC cannot start, contrary to what the EPO‘s António Campinos told the Council last week (lying, as usual) and what the EPO insinuates in Twitter; in fact, a legal challenge to this should be almost trivial



  26. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part IXX: The Baltic States

    How unlawful EPO rules were unsurprisingly supported by Benoît Battistelli‘s friends in Baltic states; António Campinos maintained those same unlawful rules and Baltic connections, in effect liaising with offices known for their corruption (convicted officials, too; they did not have diplomatic immunity, unlike Battistelli and Campinos)

    Popular movements and even some courageous publications have long been subverted by demonisation tactics, splits along unrelated grounds (such as controversial politics) and — failing that — technical sabotage and censorship; one must familiarise oneself with commonly-recurring themes of social control by altercation



  29. [Meme] Strike Triangulations, Reception Issues

    Financial strangulations for Benoît Battistelli‘s unlawful “Strike Regulations”? The EPO will come to regret 2013…



  30. [Meme] Is Saying “No!” to Unlawful Proposals Considered “Impolite”?

    A ‘toxic mix’ of enablers and cowards (who won’t vote negatively on EPO proposals which they know to be unlawful) can serve to show that the EPO isn’t a “social democracy” as Benoît Battistelli liked to call it; it’s just a dictatorship, currently run by the son of a person who actually fought dictatorship
