EPO Does the Unlawful While Leveraging Women’s Rights as an Opportunistic Form of Disguise

Summary: The EPO reaffirms its commitment to injustice and exploitation of human/women’s rights causes (for shallow Public Relations stunts)

THERE must be some serious conflict or scandal at the EPO judging by the fact that over the past few hours the EPO’s “news” section had thrown into it no less than three puff pieces (sometimes the EPO doesn’t publish even one in a whole month!). One is an abuse against disabled people (warning: epo.org link), another piggybacks women’s rights, and (warning: epo.org link) another one (warning: epo.org link) shows that just like Benoît Battistelli, the criminal who ran the Office for 8 years, António Campinos gets his way by proactively besieging judges.

These judges have openly admitted, even repeatedly, that they lack true autonomy. A recent decision indirectly confirmed that those judges are still lacking independence (EPO management shut the lid on this question and bombarded its “news” section to distract the media). So they’re being pressured to allow European software patents, even though the law or the EPC says otherwise. As do European courts, Parliament etc. (not to mention software developers themselves; they loathe these patents).

The EPO’s megaphones have already written about this. Of course no mention of the autonomy issues; they suck up to the corrupt officials in return for favours…

“This is a recipe for ongoing disaster.”This is just more of the same old EPO we saw under Battistelli. No dialogue with the union, no independence for judges (separation of powers), just more and more corruption being disguised with a thin coat or broad brush of pseudo-feminism (at the EPO women need to sleep with powerful men to get promoted).

This is a recipe for ongoing disaster. The EPO insiders know it. They tell us about it. Moments ago another report was published about European Patents being tossed out. This is how the EPO can rapidly become obsolete.

A reader of ours told us that “if you have 90 min free for watching a movie, I suggest you watch this one.”

It’s a movie called Corporate. “It is about a big company,” the reader noted, “a human resources manager and an employee who commits suicide. Does it remind you of something? Yes! Me too! But there is a big difference with the EPO: in this movie, many instances are allowed to enter the premises of the company and to carry [out] an investigation. At the end, the big boss is convicted… The reality is far worse than the fiction.”

Same thing happened, belatedly, in France’s largest telecom company (France Télécom), which saw a "suicide wave" after Battistelli's friend (Breton) had messed around with it. In the case of the EPO’s judges, remember that their colleague was bullied and defamed so badly (by Battistelli and his Croatian bulldog) that he ended up hospitalised. The humiliation and the financial damage (lawsuits are very expense) left him in ruin. So how are we supposed to expect his colleagues to say no to António Campinos, more so during a public health crisis and an attack on EPO pensioners? Human resources or just cannon fodder?

DecorWhat Else is New


  1. [Meme] EPO Budget Tanking?

    While the EPO‘s António Campinos incites people (and politicians) to break the law he’s also attacking, robbing, and lying to his own staff; thankfully, his staff isn’t gullible enough and some MEPs are sympathetic; soon to follow is a video and publication about the EPO’s systematic plunder (ETA midnight GMT)



  2. EPO.org (Official EPO Site) Continues to Promote Illegal Agenda and Exploit Ukraine for PR Stunts That Help Unaccountable Crooks

    epo.org has been turned into a non-stop propaganda machine of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos because the EPO routinely breaks the law; it’s rather tasteless that while Ukrainians are dying the EPO’s mob exploits Ukraine for PR purposes



  3. [Meme] EPO Applicants Unwittingly Fund the War on Ukraine

    As we’ve just shown, António Campinos is desperately trying to hide a massive EPO scandal



  4. EPO Virtue-Signalling on the Ukrainian Front

    António Campinos persists in attention-shifting dross and photo ops; none of that can change the verifiable facts about the EPO’s connections to Lukashenko’s 'science park' in Minsk

  6. A Libera.Chat Anniversary and Happy Birthday (Maybe the Last) to 'Leenode'

    What became known as the so-called ‘Leenode’ is a cautionary tale, but maybe it is also a blessing in disguise because IRC as a whole seem to have become a lot more decentralised (as everything should be)

    When you’re taking massive 'gifts' from AMD (and also some from Microsoft) maybe it’s not surprising that editorial decisions change somewhat…



  15. EPO Has No F-ing Oversight

    Earlier today SUEPO mentioned this new article demonstrating that EPO President António Campinos can very obviously and blatantly violate the Code of Conduct of the Office without facing any consequences; there are translations too, so the report is now available in four languages



  16. [Meme] Linux-Rejecting Foundation

    The Linux Foundation never really leads by example; by default, it uses proprietary software



  17. Linux Foundation Almost Never uses Open Source

    The Linux Foundation uses proprietary software (look where they hire and take money from) and be sure they're probably not even aware of it

  20. Patent Examiners Rising Up Against EPO Abuse

    Unhappy with the law-breaking autocracy (the EPO‘s management breaks the law as a matter of routine), fast-deteriorating working conditions and rapidly-decreasing quality of work (or lack of compliance with the law), workers have escalated further, topping off strikes and industrial actions with a large-scale petition



  21. [Meme] What Managers (Really) Mean by Acting Professionally

    The myth of 'professionalism' needs to die along with the façade of conformity as prerequisite for employment (Linus Torvalds can work just fine in a bathrobe in his own home)



  22. Internal Poll: 93% of European Patent Office (EPO) Workers Are Unhappy With the EPO

    On top of strike/s and industrial action/s there are now also petitions; at the EPO, almost all staff is "disgruntled" because of utterly corrupt and defunct leadership

    People really need to ask the Linux Foundation, directly, why its filings are years behind; this seems like a sensitive subject
