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

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 1:29 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Two vans: 'Unitary' SME killer “single European patent system”

Summary: 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

THE European Patent Office (EPO) is not governed by scientists but by politicians (of political families). Currently it is António Campinos, who has not a clue what he talks about, so he’s name-dropping meaningless buzzwords instead. We’re pretty certain that the technical examiners can see through his ignorance; he’s technically illiterate. Yet he summoned the audacity to pressure judges to allow software patents in Europe… probably for no reason other than so-called ‘production’.

“This certainly tarnishes the image of the EU; the EPO is a liability here…”Unfortunately, the EU seems eager to defend rather than blast the EPO for its illegal behaviour. This certainly tarnishes the image of the EU; the EPO is a liability here…

Corrupt Thierry Breton is currently promoting an illegal system for his mate Benoît Battistelli, as noted by one oligarchs-funded Web site the other day and then by another which said:

The European Union needs to speed up its plans to create a unitary patent system, as the current regulations are “too expensive and fragmented”, said EU Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton.

Addressing members of the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee on Monday, Thierry Breton drew attention to previous EU attempts to create a single European patent system as a means of promoting technological innovation.

“The EU has a solid framework for intellectual property, but the current system needs to be much more efficient. It is too fragmented and too expensive. And it needs to be adapted to the challenges of the digital age and the environment”, said Thierry Breton. The creation of a “single European patent system” is one of the bloc’s top priorities as part of a series of political priorities following the coronavirus control, he added.

So “political priorities following the coronavirus control” is an SME killer? Seriously? The super-rich people got a lot wealthier during the pandemic (many articles about it this month), mostly at the expense of dying SMEs along with the middle class. And what does Thierry Breton seek to accomplish? Sadly, this is directly associated with the EU, not just the German government. What will historians make of it? It’s worth noting that every statement quoted above (from Breton) is patently false. Considering his fraudulent career, that’s rather normal from him…

Anyway, we very strongly doubt the UPCA’s successor (if any will exist) can be rammed down our throats. There are serious constitutional issues in several countries, never mind Germany’s (or Brexit).

“Anyway, we very strongly doubt the UPCA’s successor (if any will exist) can be rammed down our throats. There are serious constitutional issues in several countries, never mind Germany’s (or Brexit).”Team UPC has not given up just yet, at least not the most radical factions of it (those who fabricate and disseminate false rumours). Here come Bristows again, spreading fictional nonsense, then bragging about it in Twitter and in their blog, amplifying the lies told to and via Juve (where Amy Sandys works for Team UPC as their megaphone; Juve became worse than a joke in a matter of few years).

“Rich Pinckney and others spoke to @JuvePatent about the future of the patent litigation market after UK government’s decision to withdraw from the #UnifiedPatentCourt,” Bristows tweeted and wrote:

Richard Pinckney spoke to editor Amy Sandys of Juve Patent about the future of UK’s patent litigation market, after the government’s decision to withdraw from the Unified Patent Court.

Notice the term “patent litigation market” (yes, market).

So we have ‘production’ (of monopolies) and a ‘market’ (of lawsuits).

“Notice the term “patent litigation market” (yes, market).”Great vision for Europe, eh?

“What do you do for a living, Sir?”

“I produce papers for the lawsuits market, Madam!”

This is basically the image Team UPC lays out for Europe. Great for them; not for anybody else…

Speaking of the UPC, yesterday the EPO unleashed this bizarre tweet and “news” (or misuse of the EPO’s “news” section for political pandering, another cheap political stunt) (warning: epo.org link).

“So we have ‘production’ (of monopolies) and a ‘market’ (of lawsuits).”As readers are aware, Brazil will soon surpass Spain when it comes to the number of COVID-19-associated deaths. But to hell with Brazil, the US or even the UK (part of EPC)… the political pandering has an agenda in mind. The EPO did this for Spain yesterday and Italy last month… but never for the UK (worst affected). Did the EPO write a “news” article for solidarity with the British people, where the “official” death toll is now somewhere around 38,000 (and real one estimated at over 50,000)? No.

But maybe because Spain opposes UPC or anything like it (for legitimate reasons) the EPO hopes to pull something off. Maybe not…

Here’s the text published yesterday:

Spain has declared a period of mourning until 5 June as a result of the lives lost from Coronavirus. The management and staff of the EPO wishes to express their deepest sympathy for the people of Spain and our thoughts are with the families and friends of those who have been lost.

As an act of solidarity in these difficult times, the Office has lowered the Spanish flags or marked them with a sign of mourning at its sites.

The tweet said: “We join the people of Spain as they enter a period of mourning and will lower the Spanish flag at our premises in Munich and the Hague. The flags will remain at half-mast until 5 June as we remember the lives lost and families affected by Covid-19…” (28 May 2020)

“Never let a health crisis go to waste, right?”As if the EPO ever valued people’s lived; many of the patents granted by the EPO cause people to die because they’re poor. And staff of the EPO is chronically depressed due to the EPO’s abuses. But never mind that. Never let a health crisis go to waste, right?

  17. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).
