EPO Propaganda, Looking to Legitimise a Rigged Panel of Judges, Starts With Author Who Did Puff Pieces With António Campinos

Summary: Managing Intellectual Property [sic] (Managing IP) shames itself by reaffirming its status as mouthpiece for the litigation industry and for EPO management; there’s no sense of shame in these so-called ‘journalists’

THE propaganda machine takes it up a gear 3 days before the big case (G 1/21) commences. It’s G 1/19 all over again. Truth and justice are ‘collateral damage’ because money is on the side of lies, injustice, and abuse.

The so-called ‘journalists’ who have been grooming António Campinos (to shape the narrative and set the tone, portraying him as some sort of nice person just by virtue of getting many publishers to say so at the same time) have apparently kicked off the EPO‘s latest propaganda war. The hacks from this EPO mouthpiece, Managing IP (and specifically the person who did a puff piece (softball questions) interview with the EPO's President just months ago) tell us we must accept a stacked, rigged kangaroo court set up to ‘legalise’ the illegal. The talking point seems as though they were handed over “from above”, in the same way that every time Managing IP covered the UPC it acted as little but a Team UPC megaphone, complete with puff pieces, interviews and lies as headlines (with quotes around them). The lies were indeed proven to be lies later on. Where is the UPC today? Nobody even mentions it anymore…

“In the process there were bribes and threats; the EPO is still just Benoît Battistelli’s “Mafia”, and nothing has changed except the PR budget which keeps increasing.”It’s worth noting that this author didn’t cover the controversy at any stage (not in Managing IP or anywhere else). Suddenly he’s an expert? Curiously enough, just yesterday we predicted this particular publication would participate in the PR of the EPO. We named it. It didn’t even take 24 hours before it materialised.

We expect the frequency of such propaganda to accelerate over the coming few days. We’ll do rebuttals like the video above, which is spontaneous (that’s me reading the article for the very first time and reacting).

The EPO has long corrupted media and academia. In the process there were bribes and threats; the EPO is still just Benoît Battistelli‘s “Mafia”, and nothing has changed except the PR budget which keeps increasing.

Where are the challenges to all this? No money, hence no coverage?

Yesterday Vorys Sater Seymour and Pease LLP’s Carey C. Jordan, Yamina Belabassi and Laura T. Geyer noted that the EPO extends this illegal practice while stacking courts to say it is ‘legal’. To quote their parroting of EPO management: “On May 20, 2021, the European Patent Office (EPO) announced that it is extending its videoconference pilot program for oral proceedings before the oppositions divisions. All oral proceedings will be held remotely through January 31, 2022.”

No comment on the legality of the stacked courts whose hearing is imminent?

  11. EPO Eating Its Own (and Robbing Its Own)

    António Campinos is lying to his staff and losing his temper when challenged about it; Like Benoît Battistelli, who ‘fixed’ this job for his banker buddy (despite a clear lack of qualifications and relevant experience), he’s just robbing the EPO’s staff (even pensioners!) and scrubbing the EPC for ill-gotten money, which is in turn illegally funneled into financialization schemes



  12. [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)



  13. 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



  14. [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
