Corrupt Benoît Battistelli Promotes Software Patents in IAM’s Patent Trolls-Funded Event in the United States

Summary: With less than 3 weeks remaining for Battistelli’s term he engages in gross revisionism, lobbying, and even looting of the patent office

TOMORROW, as we have just noted, the EPO‘s “expert” (that’s what the EPO calls him) will promote software patents in Europe. But today is Battistelli’s turn. Battistelli already writes articles for IAM about software patents (he’s an author there) and gives keynotes speeches for IAM. This is extraordinary as in the USPTO software patents are on the way out and here comes Battistelli from Europe to promote them there (in the US), in an event funded by patent trolls. IAM will probably write about it shortly, rubbing Battistelli’s back like he rubs theirs.

“Battistelli already writes articles for IAM about software patents (he’s an author there) and gives keynotes speeches for IAM.”But here’s a bit of an unexpected thing: Johanne Bélisle (French-sounding name) has just been named in another country, Canada. The EPO is already retweeting it and it says: “Our CEO, Johanne Bélisle, and the President of the European Patent Office, Benoît Battistelli, signed two memorandums of understanding to help strengthen global collaboration.”

Just over an hour ago the EPO boosted this article (warning: epo.org link) with the following nugget of information:

The meeting was held on the side-lines of the 11th IPBC Global congress hosted by IAM Magazine, where the EPO President will deliver a keynote address on the topic “The patent system in the age of Artificial Intelligence”.

We’ve asked CIPO: “Why does EIPO brag about being seen with a hugely corrupt official who uses diplomatic immunity to avoid being held accountable for his countless abuses?”

“IAM will probably write about it shortly, rubbing Battistelli’s back like he rubs theirs.”It’s just like in his trip to Paris where last week he collected an award that is cynical to the extreme.

Earlier today the EPO wrote: “The European Case Law Identifier (ECLI) sitemap makes it easier to access and reference decisions of the EPO’s boards of appeal.”

So I asked them: “The EPO’s boards of appeal which Battistelli is illegally attacking to make them afraid of him?”

Well, they still complain about it and the scapegoat (judge) is losing everything.

“It’s not just an insult to workers’ intelligence but to Europe as a whole. Are we rewarding corrupt people for their corruption?”It’s almost as though Battistelli just tries to drive everyone crazy with ludicrous awards for his many abuses if not crimes. There’s another one of those coming soon. Battistelli will have his name stamped on an EPO building where his staff jumped out the building (same country).

It’s not just an insult to workers’ intelligence but to Europe as a whole. Are we rewarding corrupt people for their corruption?

EPO insiders aren’t happy. These people are trying to just keep cool and maintain their sanity for a few more weeks, assuming António Campinos will be a major change (which we doubt). “The Future,” one of them told us, is what they all have in mind as “there aren’t may opportunities to have a good laugh when thinking of the EPO.”

It gets even worse as the thug prepares for departure. It’s outrageous if not laughable, depending on one’s mood.

“For sites like IAM to actively participate in all this says a lot about Joff Wild and his crew.”“However,” told us this person, “the daily life at the EPO gives many occasions to mediate. I recently rediscovered the song The future by Leonard Cohen. The lyrics fit Battistelli as from July 1st like a glove. I meditate.”

Better try to relax for a few more weeks as Battistelli reaps rewards that he arranged for himself, writes whitepapers about himself, and pretends that he’s the literal king of the Netherlands (at least for a day).

This is by far worse than anything that Sepp Blatter has ever done. For sites like IAM to actively participate in all this says a lot about Joff Wild and his crew.

What Else is New


  1. The EPO Has Sadly Taken a Side and It's the Patent Trolls' Side

    Abandoning the whole rationale behind patents, the Office now led for almost a year by António Campinos prioritises neither science nor technology; it's all about granting as many patents (European monopolies) as possible for legal activity (applications, litigation and so on)



  2. Where the USPTO Stands on the Subject of Abstract Software Patents

    Not much is changing as we approach Easter and software patents are still fool's gold in the United States, no matter if they get granted or not

  5. Microsoft and Its Patent Trolls Continue Their Patent War, Including the War on Linux

    Microsoft is still preying on GNU/Linux using patents, notably software patents; it wants billions of dollars served on a silver platter in spite of claims that it reached a “truce” by joining the Open Invention Network and joining the LOT Network



  6. Director Iancu Generally Viewed as a Lapdog of Patent Trolls

    As Director of the Office, Mr. Iancu, a Trump appointee, not only fails to curb patent trolls; he actively defends them and he lowers barriers in order to better equip them with bogus patents that courts would reject (if the targets of extortion could afford a day in court)



  7. Links 17/3/2019: Google Console and IBM-Red Hat Merger Delay?

    Links for the day



  8. To Team UPC the Unified Patent Court (UPC) Has Become a Joke and the European Patent Office (EPO) Never Mentions It Anymore

    The EPO's frantic rally to the very bottom of patent quality may be celebrated by obedient media and patent law firms; to people who actually produce innovative things, however, this should be a worrisome trend and thankfully courts are getting in the way of this nefarious agenda; one of these courts is the FCC in Germany



  9. Links 16/3/2019: Knoppix Release and SUSE Independence

  10. Stopping António Campinos and His Software Patents Agenda (Not Legal in Europe) Would Require Independent Courts

    Software patents continue to be granted (new tricks, loopholes and buzzwords) and judges who can put an end to that are being actively assaulted by those who aren't supposed to have any authority whatsoever over them (for decisions to be impartially delivered)



  11. The Linux Foundation Needs to Speak Out Against Microsoft's Ongoing (Continued) Patent Shakedown of OEMs That Ship Linux

    Zemlin actively thanks Microsoft while taking Microsoft money; he meanwhile ignores how Microsoft viciously attacks Linux using patents, revealing the degree to which his foundation, the “Linux Foundation” (not about Linux anymore, better described as Zemlin’s PAC), has been compromised



  12. Links 15/3/2019: Linux 5.0.2, Sublime Text 3.2

    Links for the day



  13. The EPO and the USPTO Are Granting Fake Patents on Software, Knowing That Courts Would Reject These

    Office management encourages applicants to send over patent applications that are laughable while depriving examiners the freedom and the time they need to reject these; it means that loads of bogus patents are being granted, enshrined as weapons that trolls can use to extort small companies outside the courtroom



  14. CommunityBridge is a Cynical Microsoft-Funded Effort to Show Zemlin Works for 'Community', Not Microsoft

    After disbanding community participation in the Board (but there are Microsoft staff on the Board now) the "Linux Foundation" (or Zemlin PAC) continues to take Microsoft money and polishes or launders that as "community"



  15. Links 14/3/2019: GNOME 3.32 and Mesa 19.0.0 Released

  16. EPO 'Results' Are, As Usual, Not Measured Correctly

    The supranational monopoly, a monopoly-granting authority, is being used by António Campinos to grant an insane amount of monopolies whose merit is dubious and whose impact on Europe will be a net negative



  17. Good News Everyone! UPC Ready to Go... in 2015!

    Benoît Battistelli is no longer in Office and his fantasy (patent lawyers' fantasy) is as elusive as ever; Team UPC is trying to associate opposition to UPC with the far right (AfD) once again

  19. In the Age of Trumpism EFF Needs to Repeatedly Remind Director Iancu That He is Not a Judge and He Cannot Ignore the Courts

    The nonchalance and carelessness seen in Iancu's decision to just cherry-pick decisions/outcomes (basically ignoring caselaw) concerns technologists, who rightly view him as a 'mole' of the litigation 'industry' (which he came from)

  21. Microsoft is Complaining About Android and Chrome OS (GNU/Linux) Vendor Not Paying for Microsoft Patents (Updated)

    Microsoft, which nowadays does the patent shakedown against GNU/Linux by proxy, is still moaning about companies that don’t pay ‘protection’ money (grounds for antitrust action or racketeering investigation)



  22. Watchtroll Has Redefined "Trolls" to Mean Those Who Oppose Software Patents (and Oppose Trolls), Not Those Who Leverage These for Blackmail Alone

    The controversial change to 35 U.S.C. § 101 guidance is being opposed by the public (US citizens who oppose American software patents), so patent maximalists like Janal Kalis (“PatentBuddy”) and extremists like Gene Quinn (Watchtroll) want us to believe that the public is just “EFF” and cannot think for itself



  23. EPO's Latest 'Results' Show That António Campinos Has Already Given Up on Patent Quality and is Just Another Battistelli

    The patent-granting machine that the EPO has become reports granting growth of unrealistic scale (unless no proper examination is actually carried out)

  25. US Patent Law Currently Not Changing Much and Software Patents Are Still in Limbo

    Surveying the news, as we still meticulously do (even if we don't write about it), it seems clear that American courts hardly tolerate software patents and proponents of such patents are losing their voice (or morale)



  26. EPO Examiner: “I Have Been Against Software Patents and Eventually 3/4 of My Job is Examining Software Patent Applications.”

    Overworked examiners aren't being given the time, the tools and the freedom to reject patents, based on prior art, patent scope and so on; it is beginning to resemble a rubber-stamping operation, not an examining authority



  27. Europe Will Pay a High Price for Software Patents Advocacy by António Campinos in Europe's Patent-Granting Authority

    EPO President António Campinos — like Iancu at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) — is still promoting software patents in Europe even though such patents are clearly detrimental to Europe’s interests



  28. António Campinos -- Like His Father -- Lacks Support From Colleagues, Endorsed Only From the Top

    Meddling in patent law by the Kochs, the oil tycoons who can be seen everywhere Conservative think tanks are, shows no signs of abatement
