Watchtroll Reaffirms Its Hatred of Science and Technology, Continues to Attack the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB)

Posted in America, Patents at 4:21 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Watchtroll now puts “Shit” in its headlines (in articles that are merely personal attacks)

Watchtroll great againSummary: The site best known for personal attacks on officials (Trump-like attitude), on judges and even on courts has sunk to new lows; the pro-patent trolls lobby has nothing left to say (except vitriol)

T

HE USPTO is not a foe of science. The only problem is, it sometimes issues patents in domains that don’t deserve patents. Why? Revenue.

“Google has a lot of patents. Google is no foe of the USPTO, either.”Google is not a foe of patents. Google has a lot of patents. Google is no foe of the USPTO, either. Only idiotic sites like Watchtroll blame Google for everything. Yesterday the Docket Navigator highlighted this case and gave an update on SEVEN Networks, LLC v Google LLC in the Eastern District of Texas, capital of patent trolls. To quote:

The court ordered the parties and their counsel to show cause why they should not be sanctioned under Rule 11, Rule 16, 28 U.S.C. § 1927, or the court’s inherent power for their attempts to preserve certain claim construction disputes until after the court’s claim construction procedure.

What we see here is a case against Google. It’s one of many. Google too is sometimes suing companies (using patents). But don’t expect Watchtroll to pay attention to it; if it did, it would simply accuse Google of “hypocrisy” or something like that (because it would not suit the bogus narrative or conspiracy theory promoted by Watchtroll).

“More Dreck on Patent Trolls from Attorneys Cozying Up to Silicon Valley” was the latest nasty headline from Watchtroll, which has basically sunk to new levels. It says “Shit” (“Dreck”) in headlines. Worse than attacking judges and courts? Watchtroll supports patent trolls, so anything that goes against trolls is “Shit”. Take a note of this. Also mind image of “fake news” insinuations (Trump style, as usual). As if patent trolling is “fake”.

“The patent microcosm is in very deep doodoo (“Shit”) if Watchtroll is its voice of opposition/resistance.”Watchtroll is losing the argument, the debate, and its writers are losing the money (derived/earned oftentimes through trolling). So its writers go all nutty; they are getting very aggressive with their words and innuendo. They also come up with fictitious claims and conpsiracy theories. Recall how badly they treated Michelle Lee until she resigned. They recently did this to another lady who cares about technology. Watchtroll has again resorted to personal attacks on some author’s motivations; pure hypocrisy coming from Watchtroll, which is authored by people who profit from patent trolls.

The patent microcosm is in very deep doodoo (“Shit”) if Watchtroll is its voice of opposition/resistance. It’s like Trump supporters who cite Breitbart in their support. We now have companies like IBM aligning with this “Shit”, which — seeing how aggressive IBM has become — says quite a lot. Watchtroll generally spreads the idea/ludicrous notion that those who care about technology are bad people; this strips off the lawyers’ infamous façade that they cherish innovation rather than their selfish interests/profits (self gain).

“Quite frankly, any person who still associates with sites like these says a lot about himself/herself.”Also yesterday Watchtroll published not one but two anti-quality (of patents) pieces. NYIPLA is fighting against the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) again, as Watchtroll reports. It reared its ugly face again not too long after it had done this weeks ago, as we covered in “AIPLA, IPO and NYIPLA Lobby Against Section 101 and Thomas Massie Wants to Stop PTAB” (Massie's misguided campaign has lost momentum since then).

In relation to RPX inter partes reviews (IPRs) and appeals to the Federal Circuit:

On Friday, July 20, 2018, the New York Intellectual Property Association (“NYIPLA”) filed an amicus brief arguing that the Petition for Writ of Certiorari should be granted in RPX Corp. v. ChanBond LLC, No. 17-1686. See the NYIPLA’s website for the full Brief of New York Intellectual Property Law Association as Amicus Curiae in Support of Neither Party, RPX Corp. v. ChanBond LLC, No. 17-1686 (July 20, 2018). This case raises the important question of whether the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (“Federal Circuit”) can refuse to hear an appeal by a petitioner from an adverse final written decision in an inter partes review (“IPR”) proceeding, on the basis of a lack of a patent-inflicted injury-in-fact, when Congress has statutorily created the right for dissatisfied parties to appeal to the Federal Circuit.

Then came Robert Stoll (former USPTO, now patent microcosm) and said: “Conversations with practitioners and inside patent counsels about PTAB have unveiled some concerns. While the USPTO claims that sequential challenges are not the problem that they have been made out to be, the drumbeat about weak estoppels after a final decision at the PTAB are echoing in the patent-holder community.”

“These people think they ‘own’ the patent system and cannot come to grips with the fact that the system was all along intended to serve science and technology, not lawyers and trolls.”It’s that same old anti-PTAB lobbying.

Quite frankly, any person who still associates with sites like these says a lot about himself/herself. These people think they ‘own’ the patent system and cannot come to grips with the fact that the system was all along intended to serve science and technology, not lawyers and trolls.

    It's easier to attack Richard Stallman (RMS) using politics (than using his views on software) and media focus on Stallman's personal views on sexuality bears some resemblance to the push against Linus Torvalds, which leans largely on the false perception that he is sexist, rude and intolerant

  13. 'Open Source' You Cannot Run Without Renting or 'Licensing' Windows From Microsoft

    When so-called ‘open source’ programs strictly require Vista 10 (or similar) to run, how open are they really and does that not redefine the nature of Open Source while betraying everything Free/libre software stands for?



  14. All About Control: Microsoft is Not Open Source But an Open Source Censor/Spy and GitHub/LinkedIn/Skype Are Its Proprietary Censorship/Surveillance Tools

    All the big companies which Microsoft bought in recent years are proprietary software and all of the company’s big products remain proprietary software; all that “Open Source” is to Microsoft is “something to control and censor“



  15. The Sad State of GNU/Linux News Sites

    A calm interpretation of the latest wave of lobbying from litigation professionals, i.e. people who profit when there are lots of patent disputes and even expensive lawsuits which may be totally frivolous (for example, based upon fake patents that aren't EPC-compliant)

  18. Illegal/Invalid Patents (IPs) Have Become the 'Norm' in Europe

    Normalisation of invalid patents (granted by the EPO in defiance of the EPC) is a serious problem, but patent law firms continue to exploit that while this whole 'patent bubble' lasts (apparently the number of applications will continue to decrease because the perceived value of European Patents diminishes)



  19. Patent Maximalists, Orbiting the European Patent Office, Work to 'Globalise' a System of Monopolies on Everything

    Monopolies on just about everything are being granted in defiance of the EPC and there are those looking to make this violation ‘unitary’, even worldwide if not just EU-wide



  20. Unitary Patent (UPC) Promotion by Team Battistelli 'Metastasising' in Private Law Firms

    The EPO's Albert Keyack (Team Battistelli) is now in Team UPC as Vice President of Kilburn & Strode LLP; he already fills the media with lies about the UPC, as one can expect



  21. Microsoft Targets GNU/Linux Advocates With Phony Charm Offensives and Fake 'Love'

    The ways Microsoft depresses GNU/Linux advocacy and discourages enthusiasm for Software Freedom is not hard to see; it's worth considering and understanding some of these tactics (mostly assimilation-centric and love-themed), which can otherwise go unnoticed



  22. Proprietary Software Giants Tell Open Source 'Communities' That Proprietary Software Giants Are 'Friends'

    The openwashing services of the so-called 'Linux' Foundation are working; companies that are inherently against Open Source are being called "Open" and some people are willing to swallow this bait (so-called 'compromise' which is actually surrender to proprietary software regimes)



  23. Microsoft Pays the Linux Foundation for Academy Software Foundation, Which the Linux Foundation is Outsourcing to Microsoft

  28. EPO: Give Us Low-Quality Patent Applications, Patent Trolls Have Use for Those

    What good is the EPC when the EPO feels free to ignore it and nobody holds the EPO accountable for it? At the moment we're living in a post-EPC Europe where the only thing that counts is co-called 'products' (i.e. quantity, not quality).



  29. Coverage for Sponsors: What the Linux Foundation Does is Indistinguishable From Marketing Agencies' Functions

    The marketing agency that controls the name "Linux" is hardly showing any interest in technology or in journalism; it's just buying media coverage for sponsors and this is what it boils down to for the most part (at great expense)



  30. Watch Out, Linus Torvalds: Microsoft Bought Tons of Git Repositories and Now It Goes After Linux

    Microsoft reminds us how E.E.E. tactics work; Microsoft is just hijacking its competition and misleading the market (claiming the competition to be its own, having "extended" it Microsoft's way with proprietary code)
