UPC: Turning Patent Lawyers Into Liars and the Media Into Their Money-Grabbing Megaphone (Platform for Fake News)

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 9:03 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Team UPC is inciting to break the law

Miquel Montañá (Clifford Chance): UPC: A reply to those who, with the help of a crystal ball, have questioned the arguments as to why the PPA is not legally in force

Bardehle Pagenberg: IP Quick Tip: How and when can you get a unitary patent? Loaded question; You wish; By who?

Bardehle Pagenberg: IP Quick Tip: How and when can you get a unitary patent?  Loaded question again; Conflict of interest

Georg Anetsberger Bardehle Pagenberg)/ Germany: IP Quick Tip: How And When Can You Get A Unitary Patent? (Podcast)
Marketing; Longtime boosters of software patents

Bardehle Pagenberg - Jan Bösing: Bifurcation at the UPC: Bardehle Pagenberg means conflict of interest; Which Bardehle Pagenberg has lobbies for in vain for many years;  Who developed this???

Opt-out, Unitary Patent, and Validation Strategies for the UPC: This entire Web site is sponsored propaganda

Simmons & Simmons LLP: Evidence, experts and witnesses at the UPC: Prominent UPC lobbyists (who lie, too): JUVE has no journalistic integrity; They show who the real bosses are

Injunctions at the UPC: Here we go again; is this the REAL purpose of the site?

Amy Sandys: Dexcom and Abbott’s fight over glucose monitoring patents intensifies in Europe: Lobbyist or journalist?

Sponsored Content by Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard P.C.: Protecting your inventions in Europe? Unitary patents could prove useful; USA! Paid-for lie, conflict of interest; Profitable for this article's author

Junk By Jakob Pade Frederiksen: Preparing for the Unitary Patent: Marketing junk disguised as 'article'; Familiar face, EPO regime's booster; Based on Team UPC alone? They keep delaying, as usual

Rory O’Neill: UPC special focus: Invalidity risk a bitter pill for pharma to swallow; No, maybe stop repeating what your paymasters tell you to say; Sponsors undisclosed as this is meant to look like an informative news site

Jones Day/Olga Bezzubova, Thomas Bouvet, Andreas Holzwarth-Rochford, Gerd Jaekel, Ping Li , Alastair McCulloch, Christian Paul, Lamberto Schiona and Dorothée Weber-Bruls: European Union: A New Dawn For European Patents: The Unitary Patent And The Unified Patent Court:  Not really; conflict and subjective advice

Jones Day/Olga Bezzubova, Thomas Bouvet, Andreas Holzwarth-Rochford, Gerd Jaekel, Ping Li , Alastair McCulloch, Christian Paul, Lamberto Schiona and Dorothée Weber-Bruls: European Union: A New Dawn For European Patents: The Unitary Patent And The Unified Patent Court: No, it does not even exist yet; Recycling and scattering the same webspam elsewhere; The creation of a new European Unified Patent Court (“UPC”) and a new patent with unitary effect (“Unitary Patent”), in which almost all member states of the European Union participate, is the most important change in the European patent system since the European Patent Convention came into effect in October 1977. It paves the way for a unified approach to patents in Europe and will fundamentally change the international patent litigation landscape.

Jones Day/Olga Bezzubova, Andreas Holzwarth-Rochford  Ping Li and Dorothée Weber-Bruls/United States: The Unitary Patent And The Unified Patent Court: Oh, it's you again??? Another marketing piece? You said this for 8 years already! It never happens

Michelle Davies and Rachel Fetches (HGF Ltd)/UK: Pharmaceutical Licensing Group Webinar: The Unitary Patent And Unified Patent Court; So-called; More like lobbyist than contributor; Patent cartel

AWA - Louise Jonshammar: Are you ready for the Unitary Patent? Not even law and constitutions are ready to allow it; Will or would? Questions as headlines and loaded headlines too

REGIMBEAU - Frédérique Durieux and Stéphanie Celaire: Whether or not to opt out of the competence of the Unified Patent Court: Another issue for European patent owners: Loaded headline again. Not really? It's not legal.

Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP: Strategic Considerations for Opting in or out of the Unified Patent Court: We make money from mass litigation, not innovation; There's no UPC and they already talk about opting out of something that does not exist

Maucher Jenkins - James Cross and Hugh Dunlop: Opt out of the UPC and opt back in later - a low-risk choice: Are you high? They keep pushing back the date; they're done this for at least 8 years; Maybe the risk is investing in something that does not exist and isn't legal. No unitary patents exist.

Rebekah Gay, Emma Iles and Sebastian Moore (Herbert Smith Freehills): European Union: Emma And Rebekah Talk IP: Better Together? Europe's New Unified Patent Court: Hypothetical and still illegal; Patents are patents They are not 'IP'

Rebekah Gay, Emma Iles and Sebastian Moore (Herbert Smith Freehills): European Union: Emma And Rebekah Talk IP: Better Together? We're sticking our 'IP' marketing everywhere as if it's information rather than shameless self-promotional advocacy of lies

Gowling WLG - Gordon Harris and Michael Carter: Opting out of the Unified Patent Court? Our guide for patent owners: Marketing and lobbying; There's no opt OUT of something that does NOT EVEN EXIST; There's no arrival as it is illegal and you have been saying this very  same thing for nearly a decade already!

Conference & CLE Calendar: A lot of marketing spam for firms with an agenda, but disguised as 'events' or 'webinars' of 'conferences'

Taylor Wessing - Verena Bertram, Michael Schächinger, Philipp Krusemarck, Jan Phillip Rektorschek and Alina Krukover: Patents: The Unified Patent Court: Pay us 300 euros an hour to lie to you!

Taylor Wessing - Dr Paul England, Dr. Wim Maas and Adrian Toutoungi: Seven steps to UPC readiness: Getting ready for something that the law does not even permit? Could. Team UPC said the same about 2015.

Summary: The above 26 screenshots (with necessary annotation added) hopefully illuminate the degree of deceit, manipulation, bribery and distortion of public discourse (fake news and advocacy of patently unlawful activities)

  5. [Meme] EPO All Backwards: Are National Delegates and the Administrative Council Just Puppets of the Office They're Meant to Govern?

    Next week the overseeing body of the EPO has a chance to prove it’s no longer subservient to the people it was supposed to regulate and control; it’s all backwards at the EPO, so crime is encouraged (for profit) and never punished for



  6. 2,120 EPO Workers Sign Petition to the National Delegates, Who Can Put an End to EPO Abuses (But Repeatedly Fail to Do So)

    There’s a considerable amount of pushback against António Campinos with his ludicrous policies; staff does not want him or his policies



  7. [Meme] You Cannot Protest Because...

    Mr. ‘social dialogue’ ‘very nice guy’ António Campinos failed to fulfill the peace mission or attain the calm he was assigned to deliver 4 years ago; the EPO is still in a state of crisis, but will national representatives care? Will they bag more bribes for not caring?



  8. EPO Staff at The Hague Complains of New Pressure Tactics and Survey Shows Less than 10% Think Office Policies Serve the EPO's Interests

    With only a few days left before national representatives meet in Munich to discuss the future of the Office it's important to understand that they totally ignore the interests of Europe, the EPO's staff, and science/technology; today we examine the sentiments of people based in The Netherlands, who are exceedingly unhappy about the direction their employer (EPO) has taken

  13. [Meme] Council Says...

    The Administrative Council of the EPO must be kidding itself if it thought replacing Benoît Battistelli with his friend António Campinos (and his unqualified or unsuitably unqualified friends from Alicante) would set the EPO on a route to improvement



  14. Selected Slides From Technologia's EPO Staff Survey (2022 Compared to Prior Years)

    In spite of the lack of media coverage, EPO insiders (mostly people who have worked at the EPO for quite a while) see the downward spiral in patent quality and they do not trust the management



  15. EPO Staff Survey's Preliminary Results Published (Almost 2,000 Staff Surveyed), António Campinos Less Trustworthy Than Benoît Battistelli at Similar Points in Their Terms

    At long last, after a couple of months in the making, the staff survey of the EPO is out (not the one controlled by EPO management with push-polling and 'trick questions')

  18. [Meme] Granting Patents Like Mad is Not Productivity (It's Also Illegal)

    Patent granting is down by a quarter at the EPO, so António Campinos — like Benoît Battistelli before him — resorts to terrorising staff



  19. EPO Management Behaves As If the Goal is to Shut Down and Outsource the Patent Office, Making a 'Monopolies Bank' Instead... or Having Rubber-Stamping With Kangaroo Courts Override the European Patent Convention (EPC)

    Flabbergasting strategy in Europe's second-largest institution makes one wonder if the goal is to drive out the workers or simply shut down the workplace

  24. The EPO is Ceasing to Be a Patent Office

    Patent offices are meant to carry out patent examination, but today's EPO is so focused on money (by granting a ton of legally-invalid monopolies) that it is willing to enlist incapable and inexperienced workers as 'machine operators'; this is done in violation of many EPC provisionsPatent offices are meant to carry out patent examination, but today's EPO is so focused on money (by granting a ton of legally-invalid monopolies) that it is willing to enlist incapable and inexperienced workers as 'machine operators'; this is done in violation of many EPC provisions



  25. EPO Abolishing Workers' Rights and Creating Second-Class Workers in Direct Violation of the European Patent Convention (EPC)

    The EPO‘s presidents Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos have demolished any remnant of EPC compliance; this institution must be reobooted immediately and all the managers sacked if not prosecuted



  26. [Meme] Trying to Circumvent the European Patent Convention is Like Playing With Fire

    The EPO‘s repeated violations of the European Patent Convention (EPC) will make António Campinos an asylum seeker like his father, seeking political shelter like Benoît Battistelli, who virtually went into hiding in 2018 (when his diplomatic immunity ended and his EPO crimes, like the Benalla affair, came to light)



  27. EPO Management Severely Harms the Health of Staff by Bullying Them

    EPO management that breaks the law wants the staff to blindly cooperate; failing to achieve full cooperation (in crimes), the managers are increasingly bullying the workers, causing some of them to get ill (in the past this led to a lot of suicides)



  28. [Meme] Executing the EPC (as in Killing It, Not Following It)

    Vichy Battistelli and his French friend have basically killed the EPC, i.e. they committed crimes to turn the EPO into a private bank instead of a patent office; who will hold them accountable and when?



  29. At the EPO, “Bringing Teams Together” or “New Management of Office Space” is Another Step Towards EPO Outsourcing

    The Local Staff Committee Munich (LSC Munich/LSCMN) and Central Staff Committee (CSC) raise awareness of a scheme that may result in only “33% of staff (at best) [having] a permanently allocated desk.” Shades of what the Office dictator Benoît Battistelli did to Judge Corcoran after he repeatedly won in court and his reinstatement was forced, whereupon he found himself back but without a desk



  30. [Meme] Battistelli the Second (Battistelli II)

    Benoît Battistelli‘s French buddy António Campinos is destroying what’s left of the EPO; as the 50th anniversary approaches it’s not clear if the EPO has any future at all (laws aren’t obeyed and new hires aren’t examiners but a disposable workforce, akin to scabs, that doesn’t meet the requirements explicitly specified in the EPC)
