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?

What Else is New


  1. Burning the House That Richard Stallman (RMS) Built: An Open Letter to GNU Maintainers Who Opposed RMS

    An open letter to people who petitioned RMS to step down and who outsource GNU projects to Microsoft (GitHub)



  2. Links 30/5/2020: Godot Editor Under Web Browsers, Alpine Linux 3.12.0 and EasyOS 2.3

    Links for the day



  3. EPO's Illegal Patents and Massive Corruption Go Unnoticed by Corporate Media and Sites That Cover Patent News

    Very major corruption scandals still emerge in Europe's second-largest institution and illegal patents get granted as well as promoted; somehow, perhaps miraculously, this no longer seems to bother anybody in the media (corruption and radical policies have been gradually 'normalised')



  4. Never Mind If GNU/Linux Works Better Inside Hospitals and Free Software Not Only Safer But Vastly More Efficient...

    With lives on the line one might expect hospitals to choose what's most secure and generally works best; but in practice there seems to be a leaning towards what bribes best



  5. Sick Alexander Ramsey is Using a Public Health Crisis to Lie About the Unitary Patent, Whose Fall Made Him Redundant and/or Obsolete

    Weaponised media continues to manufacture utterly ridiculous puff pieces for Team UPC, containing intentional lies from beginning to end

  7. They Came, They Saw, He Died

    Microsoft is an inherently sociopathic company; today's story of AppGet is an important reminder that Microsoft has not changed and isn't changing (Maui is another week-old example of trademark-hijacking tactics by Microsoft)



  8. Microsoft-Connected CloudGuru Doesn't Care About GNU/Linux and Now It's Gradually Killing the BSD/Linux-Centric Jupiter Broadcasting (Bought by Linux Academy)

    Assuming Docker is being 'killed' by Microsoft (or at least hijacked to push Windows, Azure and so on) while the GitHub-hosted (Microsoft) CloudGuru, whose co-founder comes from Microsoft, ‘finishes the job’ with Linux Academy and its assets, it’s time to take stock of a pattern/trend that ruins the media too



  9. What Happened to Docker is a Cautionary Tale About the Not-So-New Microsoft

    It’s hardly shocking that Docker collapsed (mass-scale layoffs) after the company had gotten close to Microsoft and got rid of its very own founder (a Red Hat veteran) while the software is being killed off/co-opted by Microsoft (all over the news this week; we’ve omitted links by intention as it’s only puff pieces, no investigative journalism anywhere); we only ask one thing: is anyone paying attention and, if so, what are the lessons learned?



  10. If You Want to Support and Follow Us 'Properly', Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is Most Reliable and Robust to Censorship

    Our longstanding position on social control media (we reject it and don't participate in it) is only proven ever more justified now that the mere idea of fact-checking is seen as controversial if not illegal

  13. Weaponised Media Promoting an Illegal Patent System (UPC), Exploiting Major Pandemic in the Process

    The whole 'unitary' scam/ploy (merely a Trojan horse for litigation and low-quality/invalid patents) is being promoted by Thierry Breton as EU Internal Market Commissioner (in spite of illegalities and constitutional issues), merely reinforcing the view that the EU is rather complicit in the abuses perpetrated by Team Battistelli; the media in the pockets of oligarchs and litigation firms (fronting for these oligarchs) plays along, as usual

    Links for the day



  15. The EPO Became a Very Radical Institution

    Projection tactics are doomed to say more about the people who utilise them than about anybody else; the EPO has become so autocratic and corrupt that corruption is seen as normal and workers who explain this corruption are framed as "irrational" or "crazy" or "radical"

  17. 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)



  18. 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



  19. 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…



  20. 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



  21. 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)

  24. 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.”



  25. 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)



  26. 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



  27. 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



  28. 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…



  29. 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



  30. 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
