John Alty, Sean Dennehey, and Gerard Barrett as Enablers of Thatcherite “Strike Regulations” at the EPO (and Bonus: Team Battistelli’s Cheerleader ‘Managing IP’ Ceases Print Publication)

Summary: Team Battistelli and Team UPC have long infested the IPO (or UKIPO or UK-IPO as we’ve long called it); it’s time to tell the story of what has gone on there since I was in my early 20s, observing this institution’s bizarre stance on software patents (sometimes contradicting the position of British courts, which Team UPC wished to replace/infiltrate)

THE eighth part of the series has just been published. I’ve had a lot to say about my experiences with the UK-IPO, so the video above is a bit longer than usual (70 minutes). In hindsight — as the text is almost always composed after making the videos — it should be noted that the "quality" propaganda of Joff Wild's IAM can be found here. As we note in Daily Links: “IAM (bribed by the EPO) comes up with loaded headlines and lies… with question marks at the end; Joff Wild profits from spreading lies for tyrants.”

“…Team Battistelli and Team UPC may be running out of mouthpieces.”But wait, there’s some bad news (and also good news, for a change). Check what Managing ‘IP’ published on October 8th, 2021. As it turns out, UK-IPO has in effect just put more questionable people in charge of the patent office, this time as chair. To quote: “Rich currently serves as registrar of consultant lobbyists, as well as chair of the Valuation Tribunal Service, non-executive director of the Press Recognition Panel, and governor of the Glasgow School of Art. His term began on Friday, October 1.”

“The UPC lies may carry on, but they will have fewer carriers.”Yes, “lobbyists”… and now in the UK-IPO (since 10 days ago).

So what’s the good news? As a side note, and totally unrelated to the video above, Team Battistelli and Team UPC may be running out of mouthpieces. People can see that as per this public statement, days ago Managing ‘IP’ finally threw in the towel. It is dying and finally it is ending its printed publication (amid many departures of staff; we’ve named some recently, especially because they constantly lied about the EPC and UPC); this probably means too many cancellations and lack of income. So no more publications and the Web site too, over time, will lack the capital needed to carry on at any meaningful capacity levels (it always happens in that order). Like IAM going paywall-only a few years ago, in effect making itself irrelevant (and invisible to almost everybody). IAM is mentioned a few times in the video above. The UPC is also mentioned. Earlier today we did a sort of meme about it. The UPC lies may carry on, but they will have fewer carriers.

Another bonus: Readers might wish to see all those new comments on the subject of PEB and CIPA, a booster of the UPC and Battistelli, which in turn took over IP Kat (after Merpel had been chased out). Shades of EQE. With PEB, CIPA runs a soft of pyramid scheme of “qualifications” or a sort of multi-level diploma mill, just like EPO with EQE (the legal chief of today's EPO is enabling this corruption). Notice the pricing and the nature of the scandals, including proctoring.

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
