EPO Logic: Businesses That Have Trademarks and/or Patents Have Only Succeeded Because of Trademarks and/or Patents

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 5:06 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Logic homework

Summary: The shallow propaganda that began under Battistelli is still being spread several years down the line and media in the EPO’s pocket is happy to uncritically relay this propaganda

THE European Patent Office (EPO) and European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) have a ‘cross-pollination’ problem. This means that EPO corruption has already spread to the latter. We covered examples.

As usual we ask, where's corporate media now? Why has nobody other than us covered these scandals? They’re not based on conjecture; the evidence is right there. We have to simply assume that the media giants have their own agenda, which includes tolerating software patents in Europe and speaking of 35 U.S.C. § 101 as if it’s about “trolls” rather than software patents.

“Why has nobody other than us covered these scandals?”As we noted in the previous post, media has been busy repeating the official EPO propaganda, dressed up as a ‘study’. We wrote about these latest lies earlier this week and we’re hardly surprised to find World Trademark Review (same company as IAM) acting as nothing more than propaganda outlet of these liars (EPO and EUIPO management). “The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and European Patent Office (EPO) have launched the third edition of a study that” started with Battistelli and continues with António Campinos. On they go parroting the usual talking points…

State propaganda in China (the Communist Party’s own ‘news’ site) also repeated these lies and cross-posted these in Xinhua (“Patent heavy industries generate almost half of Europe’s GDP”); that seems fitting as both the EPO and CCP/CPC rely on lies to maintain their power. “The importance of IPR-intensive industries reflects the strength of the knowledge-based economy in Europe,” said EPO President Antonio Campinos.

“It’s not a “right” and not “property”; parroting this propaganda merely shows lack of understanding.”Actually, those industries are production-intensive, not [propaganda term]-intensive (at least two letters in the acronym “IPR” are lies).

Then came English flavour of that pure propaganda (blindly repeated by Becky Bellamy of IPPro Magazine who should know better). “IP rights,” she asserted, “strongly benefit UK economy”…

It’s not a “right” and not “property”; parroting this propaganda merely shows lack of understanding. From the article: “Intellectual property rights-intensive industries in the UK account for nearly one in three jobs, and over 40 percent of GDP…”

That’s a meaningless statement echoed by this EPO tweet: “Industries that make intensive use of IP rights generated 29% of all jobs in the EU in the period 2014-16.”

EPO logic: “Industries that make intensive use of toilets generated 100% of all jobs in the EU in the period 2014-16.”

“Honest media seems more dead than ever. Publications just publish what they’re paid to publish. They’re up for sale.”We’re supposed to think that because a company uses something its success is very much dependent on that something or would not be possible without it. The so-called ‘research’ was funded by the propaganda source, so it is not real research but corrupt research. We previously explained how the EPO had bribed scholars and even repeatedly bragged about it. Similarly, the EPO bribes European media. And retweeted by the EPO yesterday were these couple of tweets [1, 2] in German because there’s similar propaganda spread to German media (which EPO management bribes). So here and also here we see German media as nothing but a PR instrument of these European institutions. Honest media seems more dead than ever. Publications just publish what they’re paid to publish. They’re up for sale.

    The EPO‘s Steve Rowan (VP1) is failing EPO staff and sort of “firing” workers during times of crisis (not at all a crisis to the EPO’s coffers)



  10. EPO Gradually Reduced to 'Fee Collection Agency' Which Eliminates Its Very Own Staff

    Mr. Redundancies and Mr. Cloud are outsourcing EPO jobs to Microsoft and Serco as if the EPO is an American corporation, providing no comfort to long-serving EPO staff



  11. Linux Foundation 2021 Annual Report Made on an Apple Mac Using Proprietary Software

    Yes, you’re reading this correctly. They still reject both “Linux” and “Open Source” (no dogfooding). This annual report is badly compressed; each page of the PDF is, on average, almost a megabyte in size (58.8 MB for a report of this scale is unreasonable and discriminates against people in countries with slow Internet connections); notice how they’re milking the brand in the first page (straight after the cover page, the 1991 ‘creation myth’, ignoring GNU); remember that this foundation is named after a trademark which is not even its own!

  16. No Linux Foundation IRS Disclosures Since 2018

    The publicly-available records or IRS information about the Linux Foundation is suspiciously behind; compared to other organisations with a "tax-exempt" status the Linux Foundation is one year behind already



  17. Jim Zemlin Has Deleted All of His Tweets

    The Linux Foundation‘s Jim Zemlin seems to have become rather publicity-shy (screenshots above are self-explanatory; latest snapshot), but years ago he could not contain his excitement about Microsoft, which he said was "loved" by what it was attacking. Days ago it became apparent that Microsoft’s patent troll is still attacking Linux with patents and Zemlin’s decision to appoint Microsoft as the At-Large Director (in effect bossing Linus Torvalds) at the ‘Linux’ Foundation’s Board of Directors is already backfiring. She not only gets her whole salary from Microsoft but also allegedly protects sexual predators who assault women… by hiring them despite repeated warnings; if the leadership of the ‘Linux’ Foundation protects sexual predators who strangle women (even paying them a salary and giving them management positions), how can the ‘Linux’ Foundation ever claim to represent inclusion and diversity?

  25. Society Needs to Take Back Computing, Data, and Networks

    Why GemText needs to become 'the new HTML' (but remain very simple) in order for cyberspace to be taken away from state-connected and military-funded corporations that spy on people and abuse society at large



  26. [Meme] Meanwhile in Austria...

    With lobbyists-led leadership one might be led to believe that a treaty strictly requiring ratification by the UK is somehow feasible (even if technically and legally it's moot already)



  27. The EPO's Web Site is a Parade of Endless Lies and Celebration of Gross Violations of the Law

    The EPO's noise site (formerly it had a "news" section, but it has not been honest for about a decade) is a torrent of lies, cover-up, and promotion of crimes; maybe the lies are obvious for everybody to see (at least EPO insiders), but nevertheless a rebuttal seems necessary



  28. The Letter EPO Management Does Not Want Applicants to See (or Respond to)

    A letter from the Munich Staff Committee at the EPO highlights the worrying extent of neglect of patent quality under Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos; the management of the EPO did not even bother replying to that letter (instead it was busy outsourcing the EPO to Microsoft)

  30. EPO-Bribed IAM 'Media' Has Praised Quality, Which Even EPO Staff (Examiners) Does Not Praise

    It's easy to see something is terribly wrong when the people who do the actual work do not agree with the media's praise of their work (a praise motivated by a nefarious, alternate agenda)
