Today’s UPC ‘Debate’ is a Farce, Stuffed by the Litigation ‘Industry’ Instead of British Industry

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 8:59 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

CIPA

Summary: Team UPC continues its gross political manipulation, in essence misrepresenting the British interests and instead pretending that nothing exists in this country except lawyers

THE UPC is a Trojan horse for software patents in Europe, including in the UK where they’re illegal.

Nothing would please law firms more than loads of patents on everything conceivable. Endless litigation, endless/non-stop monopoly applications, infinite disputes etc.

“Nothing would please law firms more than loads of patents on everything conceivable. Endless litigation, endless/non-stop monopoly applications, infinite disputes etc.”We already know that well more than 90% of ‘the press’ which covers patents is owned and controlled by litigation maximalists, not practitioners who invent and create. This is a problem. A few hours ago there was the debate above. Guess who was there…

The usual. Same pattern as the last time…

“A @UKHouseofLords committee will take evidence [sic, lobbying] on the #UPC next week asking whether inventors should be worried by the UK’s decision to opt-out,” wrote a Managing IP author who’s an extension of Team UPC by affiliation

So I asked him: “Inventors or large monopolists? The patent cult likes to conflate inventions with patents (a lie that even people inside the ‘community’ often admit to be a deliberate hoax).”

What was the debate like? Lobbying disguised as “consultation”, just like the staged Section 101/Alice ‘debates’ in the US this past summer (complete with lies and fabrications).

“Lobbying disguised as “consultation”, just like the staged Section 101/Alice ‘debates’ in the US this past summer (complete with lies and fabrications).”As Benjamin Henrion pointed out some time yesterday: “House of Lords will discuss UK’s UPC departure tomorrow, they invited the wrong lobby there [] Streaming will be here [] UPC streaming in the House of Lords at 10:45am London time…”

“Lords on UK UPC tomorrow, he told me privately, linking to the page which lists “Julia Florence from the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys” (CIPA) and he later added that “UK Software businesses welcomed Boris’s decision to leave the Unitary Patent Court, because of its obvious ties to the CJEU, but other dangers like patent trolls http://www.nounitarysoftwarepatents.uk/uk-software-companies-oppose-unitary-patent-ratification … http://www.nounitarysoftwarepatents.uk/” (an old petition of his)

Team UPC was salivating over it (“UPC Brexit live hearing UK Parliament”), but of course nobody wants the UPC except liars who just sue and threaten to sue, stationed in the litigation capitals of Europe.

“Will try to send a letter to all members to ask the right questions,” Henrion told me. He was “watching the UPC debate in the Lords,” he said moments ago in IRC, calling CIPA “liars”…

“…of course nobody wants the UPC except liars who just sue and threaten to sue, stationed in the litigation capitals of Europe. “The above-mentioned Managing IP writer helped European Patent Office (EPO) President António Campinos last week. He also tweeted this loaded question. “More like lobbying/statement than a question,” I responded to him, equating this with “Trump impeached, who will replace him? (clue: his criminal friends acquitted him)”

Here’s what the tweet said: “Now that we know the UK will not be participating in the #UPC the next big question (after considering whether the #UPC will in-fact happen at all) is where the UK’s seat will go. @ManagingIP considers the options…”

See what they do there? They push this lie that UPC is still kicking without the UK. The article‘s publisher is limiting access, suppressing critics perhaps being the goal (or spying on one’s real ID whilst reading). IAM did the same last week. The summary states.:

Private practice and in-house counsel float Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and France as contenders to take the pharmaceuticals central division

Division? There’s not even a UPC! And here they are debating which country takes which division…

This is, in general, showing that nothing has changed since the original thug left. As one new tweet put it: “After the UK’s #UPC “No”, do not rule out EPC exit next” (links to IAM’s older article).

This has long been mentioned as an option; just see the numbers. A short moment ago Henrion added this video, “Unitary Patent Trolls, CJEU won’t have a say in patent law, patent industry rejoice of stealing jobs” (included at the top in embedded form). It was the “patent industry all the way,” Henrion told me, “the previous hearings were the same…”

“Division? There’s not even a UPC! And here they are debating which country takes which division…”He was fact-checking a bit, taking note of the famous lies about “SMEs”. For instance, he quoted and wrote: “UPC ‘Designed for SMEs’, maybe he should read the CZ report, if there is one thing that was not designed for SMEs in mind it’s the UPC #uk #upc http://blog.ffii.org/manifestation-contre-le-brevet-logiciel-unitaire-jeudi-12-decembre-a-bruxelles/ [] “UPC to help SMEs to enforce patents” -> boosting patent trolls # [] “Patent law does not exist in isolation” with UPC it will…”

CIPA represents nobody but CIPA. See this new (hours old) comment and the many other comments preceding it, about a hundred in total. CIPA is very much loathed at the moment, even by those it claims to represent. Those are professional liars and close allies of Battistelli (who according to rumours wants to be “King” of UPC). Why do our officials even listen to such parasitic groups?

  1. At Long Last: 2,000 Known Gemini Capsules!

    The corporate media, looking to appease its major sponsors (such as Web/advertising giants), won't tell you that Gemini Protocol is rising very rapidly; its userbase and the tools available for users are rapidly improving while more and more groups, institutions and individuals set up their own capsule (equivalent of a Web site)

  5. Why the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is Still Just a Fantasy and the UPC's Fake News Mill Merely Discredits the Whole Patent 'Profession'

    Patents and science used to be connected; but now that the patent litigation 'sector' is hijacking patent offices (and even courts in places like Texas) it's trying to shove a Unified Patent Court (UPC) down the EU's throat under the disingenuous cover of "community" or "unity"

    The diaspora to Gemini Protocol or the transition to alternative 'webs' is underway; a linearly growing curve suggests that inertia/momentum is still there and we reap the benefits of early adoption of Gemini



  8. [Meme] Get Ready for Unified Patent Court (UPC) to be Taken to Court

    The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent system that’s crafted to empower EPO thugs isn’t legal and isn’t constitutional either; even a thousand fake news 'articles' (deliberate misinformation or disinformation) cannot change the simple facts because CJEU isn’t “trial by media”



  9. The EPO Needs High-Calibre Examiners, Not Politicians Who Pretend to Understand Patents and Science

    Examiners are meant to obstruct fake patents or reject meritless patent applications; why is it that working conditions deteriorate for those who are intellectually equipped to do the job?

  15. Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part XV — Cover-Up and Defamation

    Defamation of one’s victims might be another offence to add to the long list of offences committed by Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot, Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley; attempting to discredit the police report is a new low and can get Mr. Graveley even deeper in trouble (Microsoft protecting him only makes matters worse)



  16. [Meme] Alexander Ramsay and Team UPC Inciting Politicians to Break the Law and Violate Constitutions, Based on Misinformation, Fake News, and Deliberate Lies Wrapped up as 'Studies'

    The EPO‘s law-breaking leadership (Benoît Battistelli, António Campinos and their corrupt cronies), helped by liars who don't enjoy diplomatic immunity, are cooperating to undermine courts across the EU, in effect replacing them with EPO puppets who are patent maximalists (Europe’s equivalents of James Rodney Gilstrap and Alan D Albright, a Donald Trump appointee, in the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, respectively)



  17. Has the Administrative Council Belatedly Realised What Its Job in the European Patent Organisation Really Is?

    The "Mafia" which took over the EPO (the EPO's own workers call it "Mafia") isn't getting its way with a proposal, so it's preventing the states from even voting on it!



  18. [Meme] Team UPC is Celebrating a Pyrrhic Victory

    Pyrrhic victory best describes what's happening at the moment (it’s a lobbying tactic, faking/staging things to help false prophecies be fulfilled, based on hopes and wishes alone), for faking something without bothering to explain the legal basis is going to lead to further escalations and complaints (already impending)

  29. A Parade of Fake News About the UPC Does Not Change the General Consensus or the Simple Facts

    European Patents (EPs) from the EPO are granted in violation of the EPC; Courts are now targeted by António Campinos and the minions he associates with (mostly parasitic litigation firms and monopolists), for they want puppets for “judges” and for invalid patents to be magically rendered “valid” and “enforceable”



  30. Welcome to 2022: Intentional Lies Are 'Benefits' and 'Alternative Facts'

    A crooks-run EPO, together with the patent litigation cabal that we’ve dubbed ‘Team UPC’ (it has nothing to do with science or with innovation), is spreading tons of misinformation; the lies are designed to make the law-breaking seem OK, knowing that Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are practically above the law, so perjury as well as gross violations of the EPC and constitutions won’t scare them (prosecution as deterrence just isn’t there, which is another inherent problem with the UPC)
