Watching over your private data at EPO

Summary: The EPO does not take privacy seriously; it cares only about optics, not legality

  7. [Meme] The EPO's European Diversity

    António Campinos has made corruption the “new normal”, rendering the EPO's Web site a propaganda machine of Team UPC and other illegal agenda; what’s the legacy to be left (if any)?



  8. EPO's Distraction Du Jour

    With people inside and outside the Office still furious about the epic corruption of last Wednesday the Office (i.e. António Campinos and his crime facilitators) publishes 7 puff pieces in 7 days in the EPO’s Web site



  9. Internet Rot (or Web Rot) Will Worsen as a Result of Bloat and Upgrade Treadmills (Short Maintenance/Support Cycles)

    In order to avoid link rot and in order to fully preserve the past (archives of pages and documents) we're migrating Tux Machines to a new system, whose development shall start shortly; if it goes well, we might do the same to Techrights

  13. 'The Linux Gamer' a Marketing Lamer?

    The YouTube channel formerly known as The Linux Gamer became just Gardiner Bryant or "TLG" and it's not even acting like an organic, grassroots effort but more like a marketing operation; is Bryant a PR operative?

  19. [Meme] Bribing Our Representatives at Our Expense

    Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos has fostered a culture of crime at the EPO and the people who let them go on are in fact part of the crime



  20. EPO Bought 'Elections' and What That Means to Staff (When Bribery is the 'New Normal')

    Obscene corruption in Europe’s second-largest institution is receiving the blind eye from national representatives, who are themselves an active part of this corruption; the EPO’s reappointed dictator is already attacking union representatives, just like Battistelli did; “You are not important for this Organization. Move on,” he said to Brumme

    The corporate media isn't mentioning this (nor does it mention Windows holes as often as it mentions "Linux" in relation to minor bugs or misattributed holes), but Windows share relative to other operating systems is rapidly decreasing

  25. EPO Exploits the Deaths of Millions to Leverage COVID-19 Monopolies and Then Pushes Illegal, Unconstitutional Agenda Again (UPC)

    The dictatorship of António Campinos continues to abuse the EPO‘s Web site to incite for or make calls towards illegal actions, just like Team Battistelli



  26. [Meme] EPO.org as a Portal of Lies (and Lobbyists)

    EPO.org used to be a Web site of Europe's largest patent office, but the site has been hijacked by patent litigation lobbyists -- a disturbing development
