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.

What Else is New


  1. The EPO's Use of Phrases Like “High-Quality Patent Services” Means They Know High-Quality European Patents Are 'Bygones'

    The EPO does a really poor job hiding the fact that its last remaining objective is to grant as many European Patents as possible (and as fast as possible), conveniently conflating quality with pace



  2. A Reader's Suggestion: Directions for Techrights

  4. The Likes of Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), Team Campinos and Team UPC Don't Represent Europe But Hurt Europe

    The abject disinterest in patent quality and patent validity (as judged by courts) threatens Europe but not to the detriment of those who are in the 'business' of suing and printing lots of worthless patents



  5. The Linux Foundation Needs to Change Course Before GNU/Linux (as a Free Operating System) is Dead

    The issues associated with the Linux Foundation are not entirely new; but Linux now incorporates so many restrictions and contains so many binary blobs that one begins to wonder what "Linux" even means



  6. Largest Patent Offices Try to Leave Courts in a State of Disarray to Enable the Granting of Fake Patents in the US and Europe

    Like a monarchy that effectively runs all branches of government the management of the EPO is trying to work around the judiciary; the same is increasingly happening (or at least attempted) in the United States

  9. Freedom is Not a Business and Those Who Make 'Business' by Giving it Away Deserve Naming

    Free software is being parceled and sold to private monopolisers; those who facilitate the process enrich themselves and pose a growing threat to freedom in general — a subject we intend to tackle in the near future



  10. Concluding the Linux Foundation (LF) “Putting the CON in Conference!” (Part 3)

    Conferences constructed or put together based on payments rather than merit pose a risk to the freedom of free software; we conclude our series about events set up by the largest of culprits, which profits from this erosion of freedom



  11. “Mention the War” (of Microsoft Against GNU/Linux)

    The GNU/Linux desktop (or laptops) seems to be languishing or deteriorating, making way for proprietary takeover in the form of Vista 10 and Chrome OS and “web apps” (surveillance); nobody seems too bothered — certainly not the Linux Foundation — by the fact that GNU/Linux itself is being relegated or demoted to a mere “app” on these surveillance platforms (WSL, Croûton and so on)



  12. The European Patent Office Does Not Care About the Law, Today's Management Constantly Attempts to Bypass the Law

    Many EPs (European Patents) are actually "IPs" (invalid patents); the EPO doesn't seem to care and it is again paying for corrupt scholars to toe the party line



  13. The US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Once Again Pours Cold Water on Patent Maximalists

    Any hopes of a rebound or turnaround have just been shattered because a bizarre attack on the appeal process (misusing tribal immunity) fell on deaf ears and software patents definitely don't interest the highest court, which already deemed them invalid half a decade ago

  16. GNU/Linux is Being Eaten Alive by Large Corporations With Their Agenda

    A sort of corporate takeover, or moneyed interests at the expense of our freedom, can be seen as a 'soft coup' whose eventual outcome would involve all or most servers in 'the cloud' (surveillance with patent tax as part of the rental fees) and almost no laptops/desktops which aren't remotely controlled (and limit what's run on them, using something like UEFI 'secure boot')



  17. Reader's Claim That Rules Similar to the Code of Conduct (CoC) Were 'Imposed' on LibrePlanet and the FSF

    Restrictions on speech are said to have been spread and reached some of the most liberal circles, according to a credible veteran who opposes illiberal censorship



  18. Corporate Media Will Never Cover the EPO's Violations of the Law With Respect to Patent Scope

    The greed-driven gold rush for patents has resulted in a large pool of European Patents that have no legitimacy and are nowadays associated with low legal certainty; the media isn't interested in covering such a monumental disaster that poses a threat to the whole of Europe



  19. A Linux Foundation Run by People Who Reject Linux is Like a Children's Charity Whose Management Dislikes Children

    We remain concerned about the lack of commitment that the Linux Foundation has for Linux; much of the Linux Foundation's Board, for example, comes from hostile companies

  22. 'Poor' (Multi-Millionaire) Novell CEO, Who Colluded With Steve Ballmer Against GNU/Linux, is Trying to Censor Techrights

    Novell’s last CEO, a former IBMer who just like IBM decided to leverage software patents against the competition (threatening loads of companies using "platoons of patent lawyers"), has decided that siccing lawyers at us would be a good idea



  23. Guest Post: The Linux Foundation (LF) is “Putting the CON in Conference!” (Part 2)

    Calls for papers (CfP) and who gets to assess what's presented or what's not presented is a lesser-explored aspect, especially in this age when large corporate sponsors get to indirectly run entire 'community' events



  24. Patent Maximalists Are Enabling Injustices and Frauds

    It's time to come to grips with the simple fact that extreme patent lenience causes society to suffer and is mostly beneficial to bad actors; for the patent profession to maintain a level of credibility and legitimacy it must reject the deplorable, condemnable zealots



  25. Further Decreasing Focus on Software Patents in the United States as They Barely Exist in Valid Form Anymore

    No headway made after almost 4 months of Iancu-led stunts; software patents remain largely dead and buried, so we’re moving on to other topics

    A reader's response to the EPO's tall claims and fluff from yesterday



  29. The EPO is Slipping Out of Control Again and It's Another Battistelli-Like Mess With Disregard for the Rule of Law and Patent Scope

    The banker in chief is just 'printing' or 'minting' lots and lots of patents, even clearly bogus ones that lack substance to back their perceived value



  30. Global Finance Magazine Spreads Lies About the Unitary Patent and German Constitutional Court

    Alluding to the concept of a "unified European patent," some site connected to Class Editori S.p.A. and based in Manhattan/New York City tells obvious lies about the Unified Patent Court (UPC), possibly in an effort to sway outcomes and twist people's expectations
