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.

  3. Much Ado About Senators Tillis and Coons (Who Failed in 2017 and in 2018)

    The patent microcosm is attempting to buy laws that supersede the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) and remove/weaken U.S.C. § 101 as well as PTAB while their blogs and sponsored 'articles' serve as lobbying vehicles



  4. European Patents Are Eventually Being Revoked. But at Great Expense to Everyone Except Law Firms.

    European Patent EP2724461 is revoked; but the cost of this chaos, which included an invalid embargo, could well be measured in billions, not millions



  5. Team Campinos Will Try to Make It Difficult to Go on Strike (But Won't Manage to Prevent It)

    The European Patent Office has a long and growing tradition of failing to respect staff's rights, including the right to go on strike (over violations of other rights of staff)

  8. EPO Strikes Further Diminish Chances of UPC Ever Materialising (in Any Shape or Form)

    The EPO crumbles under the weight of its own corruption while an increasingly-insane Team UPC pretends all remains normal and a patent trolls-friendly system is ready to take off



  9. EPO Allegedly Becoming Insolvent (Pretext for Cuts), So Staff Gets Punished While Management Takes the Jackpot

    The corporate 'logic' at the EPO follows the "shareholders' value" propaganda line as if the EPO is a private company looking to maximise revenue rather than serve the public



  10. EPO President Still Not Obeying Courts' Rulings

    Federation of International Civil Service Associations (FICSA) sent a message to António Campinos yesterday (the same day SUEPO publicly made a call for strike)



  11. António Campinos Has Run Out of Time and EPO Staff is Going on Strike (Skipping Mere Protests)

    European Patent Office strikes are to resume; as SUEPO recently put it, people have come to accept that EPO leadership has not really changed and none of the underlying issues is being tackled

  14. Quality of Patents is Going Down the Drain and Courts Have Certainly Noticed

    Uncertainty or lack of confidence in the patent system has reached appalling levels because heads of patent offices are just striving to grant as many patents as possible, irrespective of the underlying law



  15. EUIPO and EPO Abuses Growingly Inseparable

    'Musical chairs' at CEIPI and the EPO/EUIPO (Battistelli, Archambeau, Campinos) as well as joint reports never fail to reveal the extent to which EPO abuses are spreading

    Microsoft's hatred of all things GNU/Linux is always put to the test when someone 'dares' use it outside Microsoft's control and cash cows (e.g. Azure and Vista 10/WSL); will Microsoft combat its longstanding urge to corrupt or oust officials with the courage to say "no" to Microsoft?

  22. Unified Patent Court Won't Happen Just Because the Litigation Microcosm Wants It

    Unified Patent Court (UPC) hopefuls are quote-mining and cherry-picking to manufacture the false impression that the UPC is just around the corner when in reality the UPC is pretty much dead (but not buried yet)

    This year the Kötter Group commemorates the 85th anniversary of its existence. But is it really a cause for celebration or would a less self-congratulatory approach be more fitting? And does it create the risk that a routine tendering exercise at the EPO will turn into Operation Charlie Foxtrot?

    The EPO no longer issues good patents and staff is extremely unhappy; but the Office tries to create an alternate (false) reality and issues intentionally misleading statements



  27. Stanford's NPE Litigation Database Makes a Nice Addition in the Fight Against Software Patent Trolls

    As the United States of America becomes less trolls- and software patents-friendly (often conflated with plaintiff (un)friendliness) it's important to have accurate data which documents the numbers and motivates better policy; The NPE (troll) Litigation Database is a move towards that and it's free to access/use
