UPC Fake News Watch (and Tough Reality): Same Familiar Talking Points and Talking Heads

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 8:28 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Ramsay says what Ramsay wants to believe (but knows to be false)

Lawyer at Auto IP conference: German judges will take patentee-friendly tendencies to Unified Patent Court, standard-essential patent holders will have upper hand again: Florian Mueller: Justice or EPO tools?

Deadline for EU Commission consultation on SEP framework approaching--and progress report on implementation of IP Action Plan: Florian Mueller

European Court of Justice opens floodgates to preliminary patent injunctions in major victory for Munich I Regional Court's patent-specialized judges: Florian Mueller: Expanding patent scope

Mathieu Klos/“UPC member states must commit to maximum transparency of judgments”: UPC lobbying and EPO management's propaganda since recent years; Quotes as headlines in place of facts; The covert motivation of this self-serving puff piece

Konstanze Richter: Pichlmaier vindicated as CJEU overturns preliminary injunction practice: UPC does not exist, JUVE insists you think  it's lovely

Amy Sandys: Latest in-house patent market news and developments: Latest hogwash with 'Xiaomi is still optimistic for a functioning UPC.'

Gill Jennings & Every LLP: Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent FAQs: Does it even exist? Can we ask that?

Monika Shailesh, S&A Law Offices: India: The Unitary Patent System: Nope, India is not in Europe; Litigation as a service; Breton; No, it is very clearly unlawful

Adamson Jones: Peter Banks: The UPC and Unitary Patent explained: Understatement

Adamson Jones: Peter Banks: The UPC and Unitary Patent explained: Based on lies; Fake news; No, it is still illegal

Marks & Clerk - Karen Fraser: Delaying European patent grant to enable applicants to obtain a unitary patent: Based on false assumptions touted for over a decade

Hoffmann Eitle: UPC Masterclass by Bausch's employer; Class on something that's a) illegal b) does not exist.

MARK SUMMERFIELD/Upcoming Online Conference on ‘Inventorship in Patent Law’: Zoom US With miss Pyjamas (EPO’s Heli Pihlajamaa)

Pinsent Masons/Nicole Jadeja/Every business needs a patent litigation strategy for the UPC, say experts: Self-serving sales people Lobbying/sales disguised as advice; Maximising revenue

Gordon Harris , Michael Carter , Anthony Dearden , Seiko Hidaka , Clémence Lapotre and Edith Penty Geraets/Gowling WLG/European Union: Lifecycle Of A Smart Idea | Are You Prepared For The New Unified Patent Court System In Europe? (Video): Already disproven; Maybe in another 50 years, if the EPO survives?

Alexandre Miura: IP Kat continues to participate in lobbying charades/fake news tactic

Alexandre Miura: And then some more, for good measure: PR tactics: make an ILLEGAL system a question of equality

Summary: We take stock of the most recent propaganda from Team UPC; notice how there’s not even one single case of objective journalism on the matter (we’ve searched and tracked this very closely), it’s just a bunch of law firms (patent litigation profiteers) and their operatives — in sites like JUVE — quoting them

  1. Windows Not Dominant in US, China, and Many Other Countries Anymore

    Microsoft is fast becoming less of a contender; hence there are many layoffs

    Links for the day



  3. This is Why Windows is Doomed: Over 60% of Web Traffic Comes From Mobile Devices (Where Microsoft is Near 0%)

    Nowadays the dominant operating system is Android (which is powered by Linux); this new graph explains the rapid demise of Windows and revenue associated with Windows (sales of overpriced, energy-hungry PCs have fallen during tough economic times and soaring gas prices)



  4. Moving From Ubuntu to Another GNU/Linux Distro Would Harm Microsoft (or Its Efforts to Control the Competition)

    Canonical has been in bed with Microsoft for a number of years; the relationship deepens despite the fact that Microsoft is blocking GNU/Linux users — including Ubuntu users — from booting an operating system of their choice on new computers

  17. Official Copy Detailing Crimes of Microsoft's Serial Strangler, Who is Trying to Strangle GPL Enforcement/Compliance With GPL-Violating Copilot

    Violent sociopath Balabhadra Alex Graveley was arrested months ago (not that the media ever mentioned this!); He is Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot and he came up with this idea, along with Nat Friedman (his “best friend”), which is clearly an attack on the GPL or other copyleft licences (Microsoft exercises control over GitHub to suppress such licences).



  18. Inside the Minds of Microsoft's Media Operatives — Part VI — Lessons Learned on Moral Depravity

    So-called 'journalists' who are in fact Microsoft spinners are a truly toxic bunch; they're allergic to truth and dangerous to truth-tellers; they're better off avoided and exposed, not informed (or shown hard evidence) because their covert allegiance means they're simply a trap rather than genuine agents of truth in reporting, thinly disguised as "objectivity" (to better parcel the lies Microsoft tells)



  19. Jim Zemlin Giving His Talks on an Apple Mac Again? (July 2022)

    Mr. “Big Shot” (no personal accomplishment but power broker for monopolies which privatise the Commons) can’t even deliver a keynote speech properly; Maybe he should try using Free software to make his presentations; the proprietary software he uses clearly isn’t reliable enough

  22. How We Envision Information Flow on the Internet (and Offline)

    We're no longer just a Web site; in fact, we encourage others to look beyond the Web, which despite the media not talking about it has rapidly waned (many sites have already turned into "apps")

  24. IPFS at Techrights: The So-called 'Web3' Cargo Cult, Except With Some Practical Benefits

    For censorship resistance’s sake we’re increasing our embrace or adoption of IPFS; almost all our archives are there



  25. Techrights Site Migration to Alpine Linux Has Already Started

    We’ve begun upgrading our systems and tidying up the growing piles of material



  26. Microsoft Lost About 70% of Its Relative Share in the United States (for Operating Systems)

    When mobile platforms are taken into account Windows suddenly seems vanishingly small; Microsoft therefore started blocking GNU/Linux from even booting on new PCs



  27. The World Wide Web is Shrinking and Microsoft's Share in Web Servers is Down to Just 3%

    Microsoft’s presence on the server side is just a niche. No wonder there are many Microsoft layoffs (about 20,000 staff) and Microsoft divisions are being silently shut down.



  28. Warrant of Arrest for Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot, Balabhadra Alex Graveley

    GitHub Copilot has been criticised for a lot of things, but blogs and the press never ever mention the "social justice" aspects of the thing (because they simply don't care)
