They Don’t Want Us to Hear…

Summary: The rushed hearings in Haar (actually, not even Haar but people’s homes, facilitated by American companies that spy) will commence in a couple of days; to get critical assessments of this sordid situation look not at “the media”, which actively discourages debate about the underlying facts and instead colludes with EPO management

THE affairs of the EPO have spun out of control again, but the media isn’t talking about that. The media budget (bribery and lawyers) increased, Benoît Battistelli‘s crimes are still being covered up, and the law at the EPO is still routinely violated. The Office keeps finding innovative and novel ways to break the law and then justify that.

“We suspect we know what publications will say what, as there are already subtle clues about the nature of the spin/deflection. It’s partly orchestrated by media operatives employed by the EPO.”7+ years ago the Boards of Appeal were still capable of scrutinising the Office. That’s not the case anymore and it shows [1, 2].

Curiously enough, corporate media isn’t interested in writing about this. It’s a deliberate editorial decision. It’s not like these people aren’t aware, they just keep making excuses when asked about it.

Just hear thisWhere does one turn to then? Where is the suppressed information? Well, for starters, blog comments can sometimes shed light on the situation. As noted in the video above, this morning there were a couple of new comments in IP Kat. “Not only has the opponent not (explicitly) consented to the use of VICO for oral proceedings before the EBA, but they have requested postponement of the proceedings scheduled for 28 May AND raised further objections to the composition of the EBA,” one person wrote. “It shouldn’t have taken all that fuss for them to realise the non-impartiality situation,” another person wrote

Notice how so-called ‘IP’ media isn’t covering this at all, instead participating in EPO propaganda. They actively lie on behalf of the EPO.

In a thread initiated by Thorsten Bausch (Hoffmann Eitle) we now see 10 comments. As one commenter put it: “I found no mention of this principle anywhere in the wording of G1/21 of 17 May 2021. Might that be because it is too delicate to go anywhere near? Is “partiality” a convenient carpet under which to sweep the elephant currently stomping around the room?”

Another comment said: “It would be nice to know how the individual members of the EBA in charge of this referral have been selected. One should assume that in the recent weeks and months the point at issue has been amply discussed internally of the Boards of Appeal, so that most members personal opinion might have been well known. Is there any mechanism in place to avoid any purposive selection of the members appointed in a case and if so, is it possible for outsiders to check whether it has been properly applied here?”

3 monkeysNotice the reply: “Hand selected by the VP3/PresofBoA.” Comment by “Straightforward decisions.”

Another tidbit: “To claim that the two members of the Presidium, Mrs R and Mr E, were only consulted and therefore cannot be suspected of bias is a mockery.”

As of yesterday, no further comments are permitted in this thread, but there’s lot of good stuff in this thread and we’re certain Team Campinos monitors this ‘dissent’ closely. After all, stacked courts are also used to authorise all sorts of other controversial decisions, sometimes regarding European software patents.

We’re still monitoring the media closely (over RSS feeds for the most part), as we truly expect the propaganda machine to go up a gear ahead of Friday. We suspect we know what publications will say what, as there are already subtle clues about the nature of the spin/deflection. It’s partly orchestrated by media operatives employed by the EPO.

    The self-serving EPO surveys, which Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos design to justify their own policies, have severe flaws in them

  5. [Meme] EPO Presidential Surveys

    The 'social democracy' of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos as demonstrated by a controlled survey (controlled by the subject of the survey, EPO governance)



  6. 'Shaping the New Normal' Survey at the EPO Got 5,554 EPO Staff to Participate, But It Was Controlled by Liars With an Agenda

    Last year’s EPO ‘study’ (hogwash about “quality” and other unscientific junk) was likely biased by virtue of autocrats controlling it and exploiting it for nefarious agenda and brainwashing of national delegates. The Staff Union of the EPO (SUEPO) has a new survey in the making.



  7. Many of the National Delegations (or Delegates) in the EPO's Administrative Council Have No Understanding of What They Vote on

    One must consider the possibility that ignorance or gullibility (which lack of qualifications may entail) possibly became a contributing factor — malice and bribery aside — in systemic failure of the EPO’s governance

  13. [Meme] Sounds Legit

    When not cheating on the wife, the EPO‘s “doyen” cheats in the exams and makes it into the epi Council, in effect working “[t]owards a common understanding [sic] of quality” with “patent attorneys nominated as “assessors” by the EPO, epi and BusinessEurope” (notorious lobbyists for dictators, litigation, and monopolies, neither business nor science)

  15. Romania's Patent Office (OSIM): Nine Different Chiefs in Just Eight Years

    The Romanian State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM), being the equivalent of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in the sense that it covers both patents and trademarks, is a very flaky institution with no shortage of scandals; for our English-reading audiences we now have a summary of a decade’s worth of blunders and leadership changes



  16. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XXIV: The Balkan League - Romania

    Romania’s patent office has been in flux this past decade, occasionally led by people with no relevant experience, but rather political connections (like EPO President António Campinos) and sometimes forged documents and fake degrees

  23. Bulgarian Like Bavarian Serfdom

    Bulgarian politics seem to have played a big role in selecting chiefs and delegates who backed Benoît Battistelli‘s unlawful proposals, which treat workers almost like slaves and ordinary citizens as disposable ‘collaterals’
