The Fall of the UPC – Part XVII: Bardehle Pagenberg in ‘Corona Zombie’ Mode

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 7:30 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Unable to properly judge reality

Bardehle Pagenberg: Sorry, ma'am, your opinion on the FCC decision is inadmissible

Summary: Gymnastics in logic and outright lies told by Bardehle Pagenberg, which spent endless time and money trying to pass the UPC(A) for its patent-trolling clients

SO IN part 16 we mentioned the lies from Winfried Tilmann and his colleagues. Tilman Müller-Stoy has a similar name, similar role in UPC propaganda, but he works for massive boosters of software patents in Europe and patent trolls. It’s their “client base…”

This is like Team UPC ‘proper’; the ‘perpetrators’ of this scam, those looking to benefit the most from their own ‘coup’. Team Campinos/Battistelli at the European Patent Office (EPO) is in bed with them, maybe even literally because of growing gender diversity in this occupation/field.

“This is like Team UPC ‘proper’; the ‘perpetrators’ of this scam, those looking to benefit the most from their own ‘coup’.”So the other day the firm (Bardehle Pagenberg) tweeted about its own employee: “#IPNews: Read the comments by our partner Prof. Dr. Tilman Müller-Stoy and our Senior Consultant Dr. Rudolf Teschemacher on today’s UPC-related decision by @BVerfG: https://www.bardehle.com/fileadmin/Webdata/contentdocuments/ip_reports/20200312_COMMENT_UPC_Brexit_TMS_TER_EN.pdf … #intellectualproperty #Brexit #GermanPatentLaw #UPC [...]”

Yes, it is a PDF. One response we saw to it said: “I guess you miss the most important point: whether the CJEU has a say in patent law, notably software patents #monastry #isolation #silence #patent #law [...]”

But let’s have a closer look at what they said — as predictable as it was given their appalling track record. Hardly a new subject here…

“…let’s have a closer look at what they said — as predictable as it was given their appalling track record.”Some time before the decision from the FCC even these patent zealots and UPC conspirators admitted that the UPC was likely dead already. That was because of Britain’s position, which was shared with the media in late February. Back then even patent maximalists like Bardehle Pagenberg’s Tilman Müller-Stoy and Rudolf Teschemacher already knew it was a lost cause. They even published in a number of sites for patent maximalists some piece about a “Plan B”. From their original in their own site:

What will become of the European Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court after the United Kingdom has declared its withdrawal? Is everything over now or do we proceed? And if we do, how?

So many questions, so few answers. They just didn’t want to state the facts, not out loud and directly anyway.

Weeks later it got a lot worse. If it wasn’t already bad enough…

“We wrote some rebuttal to those sorts of lies (illogical nonsense) in previous parts.”Tilman Müller-Stoy and Rudolf Teschemacher (quite senior at Bardehle Pagenberg) then belittled if not lied about the UPC’s death, with a title that made one believe it’s just a little obstacle. They’ve lied all along, so why stop now? The vague title said “Comments On UPC Announcement Of The German Constitutional Court” (this does not say anything about the actual outcome), followed by: “The German Constitutional Court found the German Law on the Unified Patent Court Agreement (UPCA) to be null and void. It was passed in the German Bundestag without the necessary 2/3 majority, i.e. it suffers from a formal defect which can, however, be remedied by new legislative acts if there is still sufficient political support. Interestingly, the Court also published a dissenting opinion by three of eight judges.”

This is similar to the lie or gross distortion disseminated by Winfried Tilmann et al. We’re supposed to think that the number of judges tugging the other way really matters and that it’s just a temporary and easily-overcome setback. It is neither of those things. We wrote some rebuttal to those sorts of lies (illogical nonsense) in previous parts. We prefer not to repeat ourselves as the previous rebuttals were sufficiently detailed.

    IRC logs for Wednesday, May 27, 2020



  2. Allegations That Microsoft Will Ruin Besieged Clinics and Hospitals to Retaliate Against Those Who Name the Culprit

    With a broader picture coming into view, as per the above index, we're starting to wrap up the series while issuing a call for more stories and eyewitness testimonies, exposing the nature of attacks on hospitals (those almost always target Microsoft and others' proprietary software, which is technically unfit for purpose)



  3. Microsoft Has Ideas...

    Based on the pattern of media coverage, composed by Microsoft MVPs and Microsoft-affiliated blogs/sites, confusing the public about the meaning of GNU/Linux is reminiscent of an "Extend" phase



  4. ZDNet Proves Our Point by Doing Not a Single Article About Linux (RC7), Only About Linus and Windows Clickbait Junk

    It seems abundantly clear that nobody wants to cover the actual news about Linux and instead it’s all about which PC Linus Torvalds is using (gossip/tabloid); ZDNet‘s latest two articles are an example of this…



  5. UPC Lies That Make One Laugh...

    IP Kat and Bristows (overlaps exist) are still pretending that the UPC is coming because reality doesn’t seem to matter anymore, only self-serving agenda



  6. Canonical Continues to Help Promote Windows Instead of GNU/Linux or Ubuntu

    Thrice in the past week alone Canonical used the official “Ubuntu Blog” to help Microsoft instead of GNU/Linux and it is part of a disturbing trend which lends credibility to jokes or rumours about a Microsoft takeover; it's not like many people use this thing, either (Canonical helps Microsoft shore up a dying/languishing EEE attempt)



  7. Links 27/5/2020: CoreOS Container Linux Reaches Its End-Of-Life, 2020 GNOME Foundation Elections Coming

    Links for the day

  9. GNEW Seedlings vs. Free Software Deforestation

    “The idea of the GNEW Project really is about keeping the goals of the GNU Project alive — hopefully, they won’t destroy or co-opt too much of the GNU Project, that people like the Hyperbola devs can’t fix it with BSD.”



  10. Joi Ito Already Admitted on the Record That Bill Gates Had Paid MIT Through Jeffrey Epstein

    An important exhibit for the accurate historical record (because MIT has been trying to deny truth itself)



  11. It's Convenient to Call All Your Critics Nuts and/or Jealous

    Bill Gates antagonists are not motivated by hatred or jealousy but a sense of injustice; spoiled brats who break the law aren’t a source of envy any more than mass murderers are subject of admiration



  12. Real History of Microsoft and How It Became 'Successful'

    New video that contains a portion about the history of Microsoft -- the part paid-for 'journalists' (paid by Microsoft and Bill Gates) rarely or never speak about



  13. Hostility and Aggression Towards Staff That Does Not Use Windows After Windows Takes Entire Hospital Down

    Microsoft Windows, with NSA back doors, continues to take hospitals offline (with records copied by criminals if not stolen by effectively locking the originals out of reach for ransom money); but guess who’s being punished for it…



  14. They Came, They Saw, We Died...

    It cannot be overstated that we're under attack (or a "Jihad" against Linux as Bill Gates himself put it) and failing to act upon it will be costly as time may be running out and our groups are being 'bought off' by Microsoft in rapid succession, as per the plan/strategy



  15. The GitHub Takeover Was an Extension of Microsoft's War on GPL/Copyleft (Because Sharing Code to Anyone But Microsoft is 'Piracy')

    Licences that make it easier for Microsoft to 'steal' (or a lot harder for Free software to compete against proprietary software) are still being promoted by Microsoft; its GitHub tentacles (see GitHub's logo) further contribute to this agenda



  16. ZDNet is Totally a Microsoft Propaganda Machine

    The site ZDNet has become worse than useless; it lies, defames and launders the reputation of famous criminals (that's the business model these days)



  17. When Microsoft's Mask Falls (or When Times Are Rough)

    Microsoft loves Linux in the same sense that cats love mice (they might play with them until they get hungry)



  18. Careers in Free Software Aren't Careers in the Traditional Sense

    With historic unemployment rates and people 'stranded' inside their homes there's still demand and need for technology; these times of adaptation present an opportunity for Software Freedom



  19. Embrace, Extend, Extinguish 2020 Edition

    Embrace, Extend, Extinguish (E.E.E.) is alive and well, but the corrupt (paid by Microsoft) media isn't talking about it anymore; in fact, it actively cheers and encourages people/companies to enter the trap



  20. Links 26/5/2020: SHIFT13mi GNU/Linux Tablet, Linux Kodachi 7.0 and Some Qt Releases

    Links for the day



  21. EPO Propaganda on Steroids (or on EPO)

    What EPO management is saying and what is actually happening



  22. Breton (EU) 'Joins' Team UPC to Help His Buddy Battistelli... Again

    As expected, Breton acts as little but an EPO tool, looking to prop up supremacy of patent litigation over science and innovation



  23. Removing Free/Libre Software as an Inadequate Response to Microsoft Windows (With Back Doors) Getting Compromised, Killing People

    GNU/Linux takes the blame (in a sense) for incidents that are purely the fault of Microsoft and its deficient software with deliberate back doors; it's believed that this boils down to opportunistic retaliation against those looking for a solution to the problem (or merely speaking about the problem)



  24. IRC Proceedings: Monday, May 25, 2020

    IRC logs for Monday, May 25, 2020



  25. Under Distributed Denial of Service Attacks Lately, But We're Too Robust For Those

    Efforts to take Techrights offline have been ramped up lately; but it's not working and it hardly even distracts us from publishing



  26. The Art of Giving: Why Free Software Will Inevitably Survive Attacks Against It

    Societies that share and look after their peers/neighbours will always be better off than predatory societies, which breed exploitation, distrust, discord and eventually systemic collapse



  27. 'Journalism' in 2020: Far More Articles About What Computer Linus Torvalds Bought Than About Linux Releases

    Yesterday's (or late Sunday's) Linux announcement (RC7) is symptomatic of a broader issue we've long spoken about; it restricts people's ability to express an opinion, which can cloud any meritorious and substantial debate about technical matters journalists cannot grasp or comment on (it takes more effort and research)



  28. Links 25/5/2020: Wrapland Redone, DebConf20 Plans, Many More Games

    Links for the day



  29. Media Covers WSL Like People Actually Use This Trash (a Failed Distro Which Only Works With Windows)

    Lots of abundantly redundant puff pieces have appeared in paid-for (by Microsoft) media this past week covering WSL/2, but that's grossly disproportional to the people who care and actually use those types of things (because money talks, not technical substance)



  30. Working From Home on Patent Monopolies Would Lower Their Quality and Perceived Legitimacy

    The patent system wherein people grant monopolies from their sofas and bedrooms isn't helping the already-eroded perception/image of patent offices that mostly grant patents to massive multinationals (and far too many patents overall)
