Video: 123rd Session of ILO Tribunal Judgments Session Talks About EPO

Posted in Europe, Law, Patents, Videos at 4:36 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Sending cases back to the lion’s den (EPO) is hardly helping…

Staff demo

Summary: The ILO has done little or nothing to redeem/protect EPO staff, except pointing out that the EPO itself offers no justice (not that ILO does much better)

UNDER limited viewership (see that awkward notice at the bottom*) the ILO has just published this video (we have made a local copy just in case, as access restrictions might be enforced and we might want to crop out bits of it later).

Here it is as embedded and streamable (via Google):

The English decisions are starting at 1:33:20 and some were mentioned in this post last night.

We lack the time to comment on the above, but it’s mostly self explanatory anyway. We have a UPC petition on its way and there’s a lot of news from the US regarding patents, but EPO remains our top priority for now (as nobody else seems genuinely willing to cover the subject and media blackout facilitates the abusers).

Video: French State Secretary for Digital Economy Speaks Out Against Benoît Battistelli at Battistelli’s PR Event

Posted in Europe, Patents, Videos at 4:26 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

One among many politicians, including several French ones, who are fed up with Battistelli


Summary: Uploaded by SUEPO earlier today was the above video, which shows how last year’s party (actually 2015) was spoiled for Battistelli by the French State Secretary for Digital Economy, Axelle Lemaire, echoing the French government’s concern about union busting etc. at the EPO (only to be rudely censored by Battistelli's 'media partner')

Why Bayerischer Rundfunk Videos About the European Patent Office Have Been Removed

Posted in Europe, Patents, Videos at 6:47 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: A short explanation of why Techrights has removed all videos which cover the European Patent Office (EPO)

A copyright infringement letter was sent to me today, claiming that the videos with the subtitles (foreign languages) — videos that help shed light on serious abuses at the EPO — must be removed. I complied within an hour or so, without consulting a copyright professional (such as a lawyer).

These videos are not accessible anywhere else on the Web, these videos are not being used to generate any profit here (we’re a non-profit site), so it remains elusive why they should be forgotten for good.

We already saw that EPO management had strong words about the program and it reacted to these videos quite fiercely more than once (internally, but leaked to us), hinting at action, potentially legal action.

I removed all the videos, which I thought qualified for distribution under Fair Use (for several reasons beyond the aforementioned reasons). This post is an effort to at least clarify what led to this purging action.

Microsoft’s Patent Shakedown on ‘The Tek’

Posted in GNU/Linux, Microsoft, Patents, Videos at 8:17 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: Microsoft’s patent extortion against Linux explained in a show from one week ago

SPEAKING of Microsoft "love" and promising exits, as explained either today or in the past week (Microsoft only “loves” Linux by making it Microsoft’s cash cow with software patents and the exits do not constitute a change in strategy), here is a video from 7 days ago. We clipped/cropped the relevant bit (less than a quarter of the whole; the full video can be found here). [via]


An older reminder of how Microsoft does extortion and racketeering with software patents in China can be found here.
