Unified Patent Court (UPC) Leak Shows That ‘Team UPC’ and the EPO’s Management Are Knowingly Breaking the Law

Summary: Putting aside low-quality, easy-to-refute/debunk and very traditional EPO disinformation (self-congratulatory and self-serving false headlines, followed by mindless drivel in large quantities), the reality of the matter is that due to Brexit UPC is simply — as per the law — fundamentally doomed; any attempts to simply ignore or brush this aside are willful violations of the law, but then again such violations would be very much consistent with what we’ve been seeing for well over a decade at the EPO (they tell us that breaking the law is acceptable for the “greater good” and in the process they tarnish the EU’s reputation, weakening the EU’s integrity and worsening its legitimacy)

THE VIDEO above covers a document we published earlier today. A lot of the underlying issues were alluded to this morning, but in the video I describe them in a greater level of depth. In a nutshell, UPC/A never fulfilled its most basic requirements and nevertheless ‘Team UPC’ is trying to fake it.

Just pretend UK surrendered to UPCATreaties and agreements at this exceptionally high level (such as passage of courts' power) aren’t meant to come into force by false declarations in the EPO’s Web site and dozens of sites of patent litigation firms. Constitutional courts are supposed to carefully examine the details and proper economic analyses should be carried out. As we’ve repeatedly said, we can expect to see (yet again) what happened in 2017 (5 years ago) when the matter got redirected/rerouted to the German Federal Constitutional Court. Even if ‘Team UPC’ and the EPO more or less ‘bought’ all the so-called ‘news’ sites (to disseminate falsehoods and spread jingoism) that ought not affect the underlying facts. Sure, they’ve used the media to influence/pressure judges and even put potential moles inside courts, but they do so at the expense of the perception of integrity and lawfulness at the EU. If they carry on doing this, the EU itself will suffer. Having Benoît Battistelli‘s buddy inside the Commission has done enough harm already. And it's not even over.

“…”baffle them with bullshit” is part of the ‘fake it till you make it’ ideology. Many in the so-called business community admire that and aspire to emulate it.”
      –Techrights associate
An associate of ours has noted that «”baffle them with bullshit” is part of the ‘fake it till you make it’ ideology. Many in the so-called business community admire that and aspire to emulate it.»

For them, it’s a case of outnumbering (or drowning out) facts with lies, as this is how they try to win, essentially by sheer repetition of lies; it is a mentally tiring, sometimes outright exhausting, battle for those who stick to facts. The exhaustion is seen as desirable; “that’s one of their goals,” the associate said, “but “Illegitimi non carborundum”…”

One day I'll become rich by serving people who wanted dad deadThey have repeatedly done this to judges, too. They pressure them to issue decisions before facts are properly understood and before the ramifications are known. We’ve covered examples of that over the years. The pressure is subsidised by ‘Team UPC’. It’s worse than lobbying as they turn media sites into propaganda mills and “attack sites”. In the video above I mention what Sheldon Adelson did to the media when judges weren’t leaning his way.

António Campinos fronting for Team UPC
That’s António Campinos fronting for ‘Team UPC’ only 3 days after he became EPO President. As if this was his sole goal and what he was given the job for (despite a lack of experience in patents). He already knew about Brexit, which preceded the first constitutional complaint in Germany (2017-2020; two more came later in an abundantly toxic political atmosphere), so unlike his father, who fought against the European Empire and against colonialism (the origin of the name “campinos” was once apt) the young Campinos, António, chose to basically become an occupier and shameless henchman for robber barons, opportunistically undoing his father’s legacy for personal gain, both by lying and by breaking all the rules (subverting democracy itself).

    Windows market share in Turkey is down to 9.8% this month; it’ll become a rare sight if these trends carry on



  4. Microsoft Windows is Now Down to Single-Digit 'Market Share' in Turkey Owing to the Nation's Independence/Digital Autonomy Objectives

    Windows is at 9.8% of "the market" this month in Turkey, based on a Web survey (3 million sites); we might be seeing the gradual end of Windows as a financially viable product line

    The Web, which is over 30 years old, peaked quite a few years ago; it's increasingly just a conduit of traffic unrelated to actual pages (articles, blogs) and just a vehicle for "apps", which are in turn centralised or closely guarded by few companies and very few governments (public communication is not their goal, manipulation and social control are the principal objectives)

    Copyleft does not mean one cannot make money; it just means proprietary software companies such as Microsoft stand to lose their dying empires, only to be replaced by new businesses that market and support GPL-licensed systems



  21. With New Data Just in (a Couple of Hours Ago), It Seems Clear Microsoft Windows Continues to Lose Market Share in July

    As shown above, Windows continues its demise; there’s also rapid erosion of Windows "market share" in Russia this year (“Russians [are] switching to Linux”) and sooner or later Windows will be just a quarter of the market (maybe by year’s end). Windows is at 10% in Turkey (down by a huge amount this year) and in Russia it’s down by about 5% since the war. In India GNU/Linux (“proper”, not ChromeOS) is up to nearly 5% of desktops/laptops.

  25. EPO Steering Off the Road, Just Like the Drunken Son of António Campinos, Who Crashed the Car and Begged for Impunity

    With the EPO rapidly turning into a corrupt dynasty of rogue politicians, lawyers and bankers (not scientists) we must turn to constitutions and treaties that they knowingly violate with impunity



  26. Koch Operatives Working to Shape Patent Law in Favour of Monopolies and Oligarchs

    Patent systems are being hijacked by monopolists and plutocrats for their financial gain and protectionism; it's a longstanding issue because it begets constitutional violations (glossed over by bought or installed "Justices", which is another creeping threat, especially in light of recent developments in the US Supreme Court and patently, manifestly illegal actions by Team UPC)



  27. At the EPO, “Online” Means Microsoft Windows Only (“Unitary Patent” Also Limited to Microsoft Customers!)

    The EPO's "special" (corrupt) relationship with Microsoft is a major liability for Europe; does one need to adopt back doors and US surveillance to interact with the EPO?
