schestowitz"Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzWhen the new president took office in July 2018 his mandate from the AC was to restore social peace. Now half way through his mandate, the only possible conclusion is that this aim is far of being achieved. One could even say that he has failed.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzWhilst his predecessor was very distant and arrogant, he appeared friendlier. But this was only a façade and reality hit the staff quicker than it wished.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzOne wonders what his hidden agenda could be. One obvious possibility is to continue the destruction of the EPO started by its predecessor. This is prima facie the only logical conclusion. But who would profit from it? National offices? The UPC? Those are possibilities, but this means that the EPC and the EPO have had their best time.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzHe continues to do everything to render the EPO less attractive as an employer. Who wants to leave its country of origin, leaving behind its social security system and pension scheme, to come to Munich or The Hague with the risk of being fired after 5 years, be it in the first instance or in the boards of appeal? This is the more so if a potential candidate has a family. The EPO is not any longer a worthwhile employer.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzThe recruitment might become very local as at least the family of those recruits will not have any change in their way of living. Other recruits could be young people, fresh from university, and merely coming from countries which have not reached the standard of living from Germany or The Netherlands. I do not doubt their capacities, it is just that recruitment becomes lopsided and this is never good. It would be interesting to haveDec 23 14:44
schestowitza distribution of staff by nationality, be it in DG1 or in the BA.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzOn top of this the head of the EPO takes pretext of a revenue gap to further diminish the salaries and pensions. The whole financial study leading to this conclusion is a mere fake and any reasonable person will see that the starting assumptions can only have come to mind in a twisted brain.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzNot only have a study by a renowned accountancy firm hired by the staff representation but also a deep analysis by the Pensioner’s Association shown how unrealistic the “financial” study is. The instruction to the firm chosen by the EPO was clearly to come to the conclusion that there will be a deep financial gap.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzOne of the assumptions is that the EPO, after a 4% fee increase for 2020, there will be no further fee increases from then on till 2038! In parallel the salaries will grow and hence an enormous deficit is foreseeable. Simply ludicrous!Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzThe whole scenario reminds me of a French expression saying that if you want to kill your dog, you claim it has caught rabies.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzThe problem of the EPO is that the AC does not play its role. The tail is wagging the dog and the immunity given for good reasons to the EPO is being misused and has ended up with a feeling of impunity. The EPO has become a playground for would be managers and their minions, and the worse is that they manage the EPO as it was their property and with methods which go back to the 19th century.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzNo wonder staff wants to react. One can only support their action. Forcing most of the staff in home office does not mean that it cannot react to what is to be considered as a disgrace.Dec 23 14:44
schestowitzOne thing appearing already is that the trail of destruction started by the former head of the EPO is aggravated by its successor. Is this what the users of the European Patent system want? I would expect a reaction from the profession as a whole and not merely by some individuals. Folks, it is your future which is at stake as well. It is high time to realise it!Dec 23 14:44

schestowitzShould not the same causes lead to the same consequences? Why should this time be any different than in the previous occasion? I suspect the new complaints do not raise fewer substantive issues than the previous one Mr. Stjerna filed.Dec 23 18:30

schestowitzThe same causes do no longer exist. The missing majority in the German Parliament (Bundestag) has been observed.Dec 23 18:31
schestowitzMost of the other grounds submittd by the complainant were held inadmissible by the FCC in proceedings before the Law’s entry into force (note 103 et seq.). They can only be put forward by a complainant immediately adversely affected by an act of the UPC violating the complainant’s constitutional rights. This situation can only arise once the UPC will have become operative.Dec 23 18:31

schestowitzHi,Dec 23 22:35
schestowitzFew "news" sites are reporting it, but attached to the government spending bill this year is perhaps one of the most corrupt backroom deals in awhile.Dec 23 22:35
schestowitzFor years, Congress failed to pass the CASE Act or the felony streaming law because they are wildly unpopular and achieve the goals of rich special interest groups that caused the web shutdown protests over SOPA/PIPA several years ago.Dec 23 22:35
schestowitzIn particular, the CASE Act is heinous because Congress has created an inferior arbitration system in the Copyright Office where people can be sued for up to $30,000 a pop, perhaps for something as minor as downloading a jpeg image from a website and uploading it somewhere else. This is substantially similar to the criminal meme law in the EU.Dec 23 22:35
schestowitzPerhaps it's time for everyone to surf on a VPN, otherwise they risk finding themselves sanctioned by some unaccountable arbitration lawyers, far from where they live, over something that most people would say is fair use.Dec 23 22:35
schestowitzCongress has spent years shredding the concept of the public domain, and the long march towards turning the once open web into a corporate cesspit of DRM and copyright lawsuits continues.Dec 23 22:35
