Spillover: Team UPC Trying to Fill Up the Cup ‘Half Empty’

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 8:47 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

UPC milk: Before quarantine after quarantine

Summary: The European Patent Office’s (EPO) corruption is mirrored in UPC corruption; the former hasn’t yet seen its downfall due to this corruption and the latter is already up in flames, no matter how media sites (are paid to) spin it, giving false hope for the sake of lobbying by Team UPC

HERE they go again, still refusing to let go and move on. There’s always spin opportunity around the corner, no matter how grim things are. Facts do matter, however, and facts have always been on the side of UPC antagonists, even if they weren’t as vocal as Team UPC, owing to financial/vested interests.

“Facts do matter, however, and facts have always been on the side of UPC antagonists, even if they weren’t as vocal as Team UPC, owing to financial/vested interests.”What do we mean by that?

In simple terms, when you have an (fake) industry looking to make billions by attacking all other industries, and when there’s a coup to change the law and to tilt the rules, vast resources are poured into media distortion, bribery, perception management tactics, forgery and fabrication.

Team UPC is — and has long been — a small bunch of unethical thugs, nested in some overpriced offices across Europe, looking to make a euro or a sterling by serving patent trolls and American monopolists. These people have never been the public’s friends. They’re vultures equipped with expensive suits and cheap lies. They fund some of the media to play along with their sick agenda. They’ll try to tell us that their only critics are Russian agents, AfD, or clueless people who “simply don’t understand the law…”

Well, thankfully some of us aren’t as gullible as they need us to be. So some people fought back and won. The UPC is now dead. It was never supposed to get off the ground in the first place. It’s a long story about systemic corruption and ghost-writing (or shadow-writing) laws…

It took the highest court in Germany and Brexit to put an end to all this mischief; lessons should be learned about our democracy and how it was bypassed by a small bunch of overzealous, vastly-outnumbered but sufficiently eager scam artists. They even ruined a site that used to cover EPO abuses and corruption (and never does this anymore, neither in English nor in German).

Mathieu Klos and his colleagues turned Juve into a UPC propaganda machine with their new English site, which now speaks of “life after UPC” without speaking to critics of it. The summary:

…most patent litigators and patent attorneys remain optimistic about the chances of London’s patent firms on the global patent stage.

“They fund some of the media to play along with their sick agenda.”What about the people actually impacted by litigation and not as “War Profiteers”?

No, UPC critics don’t appear to exist (to biased media)! Even if they’re the vast majority of the population.

Benjamin Henrion took note of the part that says: “Ministry of Justice in Germany is preparing active approval for the UPC bill to resubmitted to German parliament [...] All legislation pertaining to the UPC must be redrafted. However, the vote is not likely to occur before the end of the year.”

The Ministry of Justice in Germany made some outrageous statements after the FCC’s decision, so it is not surprising. António Campinos used the outrageous words for self-serving EPO propaganda that matches Benoît Battistelli‘s low standards.

“These people are like meat packers opposing veganism or wolves lobbying for open-field sheep grazing. What a bunch of selfish people, boosted by media deep inside their pockets (which is what Juve became).”Look who’s behind this latest article. Familiar names and faces. “The litigation ‘industry’ should not matter at all as it is a fraction of the actual, real, practising industry,” I told them. “This is all about litigation rather than science [...] Litigation is not an actual industry and it tends to be parasitic at best.”

The Twitter outline from Mathieu Klos said: “JUVE Patent’s long read: Business as usual? London’s patent firms and courts react to life after UPC

“London is picking up the pieces after the UK government’s decision to withdraw from the UPC. But where does this leave its patent firms and courts?”

Tweets that soon followed included Thomas Adam (“UPCtracker”) with this: “My quick take on UK vis-a-vis Brexit vis-a-vis #UPC: tentative optimism re life sciences/pharma, less so re EEE/telecoms patent litigation. Everyone‘s guess: impact on UK IP boutiques.”

“IP boutiques”?

Seriously?

You repeat the word “boutiques”?

Suffice to say, those people also advocate software patents in Europe and they never wrote a single line of code.

These people are like meat packers opposing veganism or wolves lobbying for open-field sheep grazing. What a bunch of selfish people, boosted by media deep inside their pockets (which is what Juve became). Is Juve a media boutique?

More than 3,000 dissidents were killed or “disappeared” by the Pinochet regime. The USA operated a destabilization campaign in Chile, and the September 11, 1973, attacks were part of that campaign.”
