The Fall of the UPC – Part III: Pure Comedy From Watchtroll and Its UPC Lobbyists From Managing IP

Posted in Courtroom, Deception, Europe, Law, Patents at 5:39 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

How much longer can one defend corruption?

UPC Preparatory Committee has things under control!!!
UPC Preparatory Committee has things totally under control!!!

Summary: Two megaphones of European Patent Office (EPO) management and boosters of Team Battistelli, namely Managing IP and Watchtroll, want us to think that UPC is merely “delayed” and that acts of overt corruption can be described as “passed unanimously by the Second Chamber of the Bundestag”

THE site Managing IP isn’t doing particularly well right now. All its lobbying campaigns for the UPC fell on deaf ears and failed. They know it. We know it. They also lost lots of writers in recent years (we won’t name all of them, but it’s a lot) and they hardly publish anything. Not much of substance.

They recently broke their RSS feed (with a redesign) and their main writer nowadays (Max Walters) was taken from another site. Their (and his) latest article cannot quite deny the facts. Their paywall became a lot more stubborn than before (desperation for income perhaps).

“It has actually been rather amusing to see Team UPC lying about the decision of the FCC, as we noted in Parts I and II.”One of their main writers was once upon a time doing puff pieces with and for Battistelli. But he left. Almost all the decent writers left, including those whom we used to cite a lot.

It has actually been rather amusing to see Team UPC lying about the decision of the FCC, as we noted in Parts I and II. These liars are disjoint from and disconnected from reality. Uncaring for facts…

Team UPC is also losing its mind at the moment. Patent zealots have long relied on hijacking (or already-hijacked) patent offices. But they cannot seem to undermine the courts too. Corrupt Rader is out, UPC is dead…

Now what?

Well, James Nurton (Watchtroll and formerly Managing IP) has published an article with the headline “German Decision Puts Unified Patent Court Agreement in Jeopardy”

It’s “in Jeopardy”?

“Maybe lying and corruption pay off in the short term.”It’s dead. Talk about spin. They were paid to promote UPC (he personally did this in Managing IP). Mr. Nurton is just trying to save face and salvage what’s left of his reputation. His track record speaks for itself and he cannot deny what he wrote (which we repeatedly challenged). How about all those UPC “progress reports”, which suddenly and abruptly stopped when they ran out of material as opposed to fabrication and sheer lunacy?

This is what we alluded to in Part II. These people will suffer for a long, long time to come for what they wrote. They were like lobbyists or PR agents disguised as “reporters” and “journalists”.

They know it, we know it.

Maybe lying and corruption pay off in the short term.

Watch what’s happening to the economy right now.

Nurton says the latest outcome is “what may be a fatal blow to the project” (UPC), but why did he keep cheering for it? Why did he fail to predict such an obvious outcome, which we’ve correctly predicted for about half a decade, based on underlying facts?

“The Act of Approval,” he wrote, “was passed unanimously by the Second Chamber of the Bundestag but only about 35 members were present.”

“Nurton says the latest outcome is “what may be a fatal blow to the project” (UPC), but why did he keep cheering for it? Why did he fail to predict such an obvious outcome, which we’ve correctly predicted for about half a decade, based on underlying facts?”At what time at night, Mr. Nurton?

Around 1:30AM. This was an act of corruption — the kind of thing that helps associate Germany with crimes.

Not good. Embarrassing even. The Justices saw that. They made the right decision. On that basis alone the UPCA ought to be thrown out immediately. This act of corruption was very much characteristic of other things we saw in the process, EU-wide.

Don’t expect to get any real facts from Watchtroll and its ‘European’ writers, part of the exodus (away from Managing IP). Check out this Nurton tweet: “”Despite the fact that the judgement will result in further delay the preparatory work will continue, while the judgement and the way forward is further analysed” – #UPC Preparatory Committee responding to German FCC decision today https://www.unified-patent-court.org/news/federal-constitutional-court-decision …”

“If this is where Nurton gets his ‘facts’, then he would be a perfect fit for covering Donald Trump news for Fox “News”.” Oh, we see…

There’s a “further delay”…

The Ministry of Truth protects… the “Truth” (Preparatory Committee, whose every statement turns out to be a lie, including this latest one). If this is where Nurton gets his ‘facts’, then he would be a perfect fit for covering Donald Trump news for Fox “News”.

  10. The Fall of the UPC - Part IX: Campinos Opens His Mouth One Week Later (and It's That Hilarious Delusion Again)

    Team Campinos said nothing whatsoever about the decision of the FCC until one week later, whereupon Campinos leveraged some words from Christine Lambrecht to mislead everybody in the EPO's official "news" section



  11. Pretending EPO Corruption Stopped Under António Campinos When It is in Fact a Lot Worse in Several Respects/Aspects (Than It Was Under Benoît Battistelli)

    Germany's eagerness to keep Europe's central patent office in Munich (and to a lesser degree in Berlin) means that politicians in the capital and in Bavaria turn a blind eye to abuses, corruption and even serious crimes; this won't help Germany's image in the long run

  15. The Fall of the UPC - Part VIII: Team UPC Celebrates Death, Not Life

    The ugly story of Open Invention Network (OIN) and LOT; today we take a closer look at LOT and highlight a pattern of 'cross-pollination' (people in both OIN and LOT, even at the same time)



  19. Faking Production With Fake Patents on Software

    The EPO with its illegal guidelines (in violation of the EPC) can carry on churning out millions of fake patents that European courts would only waste time on and small companies be blackmailed with (they cannot afford legal battles)



  20. With the Unified Patent Court (UPC) Out of the Way Focus Will Return to EPO Corruption

    Expect the European Patent Office (EPO) to receive more negative attention now that the ’cause’ of UPC is lost and there’s no point pretending things are rosy
