The Morally and Financially Corrupt Linux Foundation

Posted in Fraud, Kernel, Microsoft at 9:21 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

A foundation as morally bankrupt/corrupt as all the men below (but guess who got banned and what for; guess who receives keynote speech positions and why)

Banned by Linux Foundation for wearing a hat; Welcomed by Linux Foundation for paying a bribe

Summary: The Linux Foundation bans people for supporting a man whom Linux Foundation sponsors help commit crimes against humanity; basically, it’s all about money (yes, just money); in fact, almost all Linux Foundation code is being outsourced to this proprietary software firm that commits very serious bribery crimes, works for ICE, and enables Trump’s abuses (for profit!)

Microsoft is Defrauding Its Shareholders While Laying Off About 5,000 Workers

Posted in Finance, Fraud, Microsoft at 4:20 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Microsoft’s financial situation has long been manipulated (it not only defrauded shareholders before, but it also got caught, then paid bribes to silence whistleblowers)

Sunsets

Summary: Contrary to what Microsoft ‘moles’ inside the media want us to believe, the layoffs at Microsoft are considerable and the financial results are at least partly faked

“Microsoft Corp.-owned LinkedIn today said that it is laying off about 960 employees, or approximately 6% of its global workforce,” says this article. We cited another article yesterday.

Who inside Microsoft decided on this number? We can imagine a conversation going on along the lines of:

“In recent weeks Microsoft laid off about 5,000 people (yes, we count contract workers too; it’s a loophole), assuming part-timers in stores add up to about 20 people per store, plus 2,000+ more layoffs that Microsoft failed to hide (the disposed-of employees spoke to journalists with strong cryptography “apps”).”“OK, so we can lay off 960 employees…”

“But why 960? Who decided on the number?”

“Well, it’s less than a thousand…”

“So why not 999? Or 990?”

“Obviously, because then people will realise Microsoft just creates an illusion of a small number…” (triple- rather than four-digit)

In recent weeks Microsoft laid off about 5,000 people (yes, we count contract workers too; it's a loophole), assuming part-timers in stores add up to about 20 people per store, plus 2,000+ more layoffs that Microsoft failed to hide (the disposed-of employees spoke to journalists with strong cryptography “apps”).

“What kind of company fires so many people if it has real and sustainable growth?”The Microsoft-friendly ‘journalists’ are bombarding the media (earlier this week to present) with claims of growth. What kind of company fires so many people if it has real and sustainable growth? As insiders told us, Microsoft is basically defrauding its shareholders (a complaint was submitted to the SEC). The supposed "big growth" areas are actually suffering layoffs and cuts.

As an associate of ours put it, having studied some of the latest puff pieces (Microsoft-connected ‘news’ sites), Microsoft is just “shuffling the diminishing money around” and it is trying to seize people’s medical records to assure/secure government bailout (if or when it becomes necessary; like JEDI); “this is where Microsoft is aiming its attacks of late,” he said, pointing to media puff pieces that lobby for outsourcing of people’s most sensitive data to Azure.

[Humour/Meme] Today’s EPO is Run by Con Men and Fraudsters

Posted in Europe, Finance, Fraud, Patents at 9:02 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Star Trek Kirk War two faces: So, EPO... I heard you recruit scientists. Of course we do... Of course we do...

Summary: Management of the EPO — just like Team UPC — is advertising job opportunities for jobs that are fictional at best according to internal documents

After 2 Years and 2 Days António Campinos is a Perfect Leader, Fostering EPO Abuses While Smiling

Posted in Europe, Fraud, Patents at 9:25 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“When a man is able to take abuse with a smile, he is worthy to become a leader.”

Nachman of Bratslav

Summary: EPO corruption persists, but this time the corruption enjoys better marketing/PR and complicit (or at best silent) media

THE European Patent Office (EPO) under the management of incompetent friends of António Campinos and Benoît Battistelli (former colleagues and relatives) isn’t going to stave off criticism and look beyond the perils unless real changes are implemented, starting with mass resignation of existing top-level management (which is unlikely to happen; they love the salaries and the huge bonuses they give to themselves). Within a few years in the presidency (top seat) both Battistelli and Campinos sank to approval rates/levels (among staff) of 3%-5% and the media is paid to not talk about it (or most of it was intimidated into silence). See what happened to IP Kat

How many software patents were granted from people’s homes/apartments during the pandemic/lock-down? How many of these would prove invalid in courts?

“Apparently it doesn’t interest the media when Europe’s second-largest institution is rife with abuse and serious misconduct.”If you run a patent office, which is itself a sort of monopoly for granting monopolies, you have utmost responsibility to handle the authority sensibly. Instead, in the EPO at least, fiscal priorities took the front seat and then the EPO’s management had the audacity to moan about deficit and punish the staff (based on a lie). Nobody was fooled by it, but again, as we’ve noted before, the media did not mention this. It’s apathetic if not virtually dead. Apparently it doesn’t interest the media when Europe’s second-largest institution is rife with abuse and serious misconduct. Who cares anyway? Right…?

Happy birthday, Mr. António Campinos. May your next 3 years (if you last that long) be as prosperous for you and your colleagues/friends as much as the first two. Plunder it softly.

“There is nothing in the Constitution that authorizes or makes it the official duty of a president to have anything to do with criminal activities.”

[Humour] European Inventor Award (EIA) Still a Hallmark of EPO Corruption

Posted in Europe, Fraud, Patents at 8:47 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Dog comparison 3: Independent jury. Like the one you sent to exile? France gets EIA every other year?

Summary: A reminder that ‘Judge’ Battistelli profits from EIA and sits on the panel (warning: epo.org link) instead of in some prison cell

EPO demolition

Summary: The EPO’s staff representatives/union decided to speak about the unlawful ‘reforms’ at the EPO, which is happy to exploit a pandemic to let much of it slip under the radar (while press isn’t functioning or barely functioning)

“Things at the EPO are not getting better,” one reader told us yesterday, “on the contrary.” There’s information to that effect circulating at the moment; it organises known facts about what really happens while people are stuck in their homes, forced to work as if everything is normal (with same quotas and more illegal surveillance).

“Well, we already know where a large chunk of that money is funnelled into.”We’ve decided to air a number of articles and tidbits from the guts of the European Patent Office (EPO), where staff feels increasingly oppressed by António Campinos, who is nowadays being compared to Benoît Battistelli.

In times of pandemic, demolition works continues

Whilst staff struggles with the challenges created by the covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing massive home working (done in parallel with home schooling for many), Mr Campinos continues to push shamelessly his reform of the Salary Adjustment Procedure (SAP) that will strip off staff from a decent protection against the erosion of purchasing power. The new SAP will save 2 billions on the backs of staff and pensioners, when everyone (with the ability to read and count) knows that the need to “fill the gap” is just a big lie.

Thanks to Mr Battistelli and his crew, the EPO has since 2015 the worst career system of all international organisations (IO). If the Administrative Council supports the new SAP of Campinos in June, which is certain, we will also “enjoy” the worse SAP of all IOs…

Not only does Mr Campinos intend to remove the normal financial guarantees, which staff should enjoy, but he continues to deny their fundamental rights, such as a proper right to strike, the right to freedom of speech, or a decent access to a swift judicial system. Let’s take the case of freedom of speech and freedom of communication that goes with it. Since mid 2013, mass emails are banned for the staff representation. Campinos could have easily corrected this absurd anomaly in the world of IOs and EU agencies. He did not, and clearly does not intend to do so any time soon. He may not be the one who introduced the unlawful censorship 7 years ago, but he finds it very convenient after all…

Campinos is, no doubt, Battistelli’s true disciple, although perhaps with less brutality towards union officials than his mentor (but time will tell). After all, one should not forget that, like a king choosing his heir, Battistelli did his best to make sure Campinos would succeed him at the head of the EPO. So we should not be too surprised by the harshness of the reforms that Campinos wants to implement (he has a lot of them in mind, including on education allowances…). He basically shares the same “values” as his predecessor, and will continue – unsurprisingly – to protect Battistelli’s protégés (still very active and influent at the Office); he knows to whom he owes the crown of King of Eponia.

Cui Bono?

It is often said that many of the world’s great questions can be solved by finding the answer to the question “Where does the money go?”.

The EPO is no different – and the Salary Erosion Procedure is no exception. Upon an initiative of SUEPO, Ernst & Young reviewed the EPO’s Financial Study conducted by Mercer & Wyman. Evidently, they won’t say that Mercer were wrong – they just state ”we come to a different conclusion”. A conclusion that is shared with the many publications by SUEPO, Staff Representatives, EPO Pensioners and press: there is no financial gap at the EPO, and there won’t be any, even under Covid-19 circumstances.

At the latest Budget and Finance Committee meeting, this complementary study was swiftly disregarded, and the Member States’ representatives were all too happy to provide a positive opinion on the new Salary Erosion Procedure. In its June meeting the Administrative Council will follow suit in all likelihood, which will allow the EPO administration to pile even more money on top of the stack of banknotes we are already sitting on – all on the back of staff and pensioners, of course. Quite a thank you for the continued efforts staff has been demonstrating in recent years.

The question remains: who is going to benefit from these large flows of money? Cui Bono?

Well, we already know where a large chunk of that money is funneled into. This is likely an elaborate scam if not fraud. Does the EU care? Do member states care? If not, what does that tell us about the EPO’s immunity?
