Battistelli Feels as Though He's Above the Law, So No Wonder He Pursues Software Patents in Europe (Against the Rules)

Days ago: The EPO Has Found 'Creative' New Ways to Bribe the Media and Promote Software Patents

Software patents under the European Patent Convention
Reference: Software patents under the European Patent Convention



Summary: Using the fairly new buzzword, "4IR", the EPO continues to promote software patents, conjoined with other three-letter buzzwords ("ICT", "CII" and so on) and nothing is being said about the latest scandals, which the EPO is eager to prevent anyone knowing about

THE EPO has not yet said anything about last week's epic meeting.



Having published numerous 4IR "tweets" and "retweets" (almost most of Monday's, in different languages, e.g. this one) to distract from the latest EPO scandals, now comes the chief tyrant, Battistelli, with this 'blog' post. (warning: epo.org link)

"They seem unable to talk about anything other than 4IR (not just today but last week too)."This has already been promoted by the EPO's Twitter account. They seem unable to talk about anything other than 4IR (not just today but last week too).

It isn't about a 'study' but about the EPO passing money for German media to hype up "4IR" everywhere. It won’t be long before terms like “evidence-based” are banned at the EPO (under Battistelli or Campinos) as they’re not interested in facts. They want the press to report only what the EPO pays for.

"They want the press to report only what the EPO pays for."What did Battistelli say today anyway (if he wrote that 'blog' post at all)? He refers to software patents specifically now (those are banned), he just calls them "CII". A few days ago we explained how "4IR" relates to that. "For the EPO as a whole," Battistelli posted, "we will also finish implementing a significant reorganisation on 1 January so that our core structure reflects the evolutionary changes that are inherent in ICT, CII and more widely the 4IR."

Well, on 1 January there are much bigger things happening (further attacks on staff), but Battistelli must be lacking the time to write 'blog' posts about that.

Against the rules and against the rights of workers, the EPO continues to stride forward (while its reputation sinks and the number of patent applications declines).

"Against the rules and against the rights of workers, the EPO continues to stride forward (while its reputation sinks and the number of patent applications declines)."The EPO retweeted someone as saying: "It’s really fantastic to hear @EPOorg President Battistelli talk about the impact their #patent landscape report on industry 4.0 is having within the patenting community..."

You just know someone is gullible when a sentence starts with "It’s really fantastic to hear EPO President Battistelli..."

Battistelli is a chronic liar. He is just trying to distract from his abuses, which were confirmed by ILO about 12 days ago. The "4IR" nonsense was, in our assessment, coordinated and also timed to help distract from ILO. Some sources claimed that the EPO had been told about the ruling of the Tribunal before it was delivered. There was another kind of distraction, posted at almost the exact same time as the live stream from ILO. We covered that too.

But all taken into account, at the end of the day life goes on at the EPO. It's like no scandal -- no matter how big -- will get Battistelli punished, reprimanded, or even sacked. Europe has its very own Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan.

"It's like no scandal -- no matter how big -- will get Battistelli punished, reprimanded, or even sacked."A few hours ago the EPO wrote: "Experienced epi tutors from around Europe will help you prepare for the #EQE pre-examination paper 2018."

This is the same EPI (or epi) which enjoys an 'incestuous' relationship with EPO management and helped snitch on those who warned about EPO abuses.

Can someone in Germany or Croatia (who speaks German or Croatian, respectively, depending on the court) fetch a file on the Patrick Corcoran case for us to publish/explain? We have the case reference number. We strive to accumulate and expose as much information as possible about this case, which is classic legal bullying (the EPO tried the same thing against yours truly).
