JUVE Has Become Little But a Team UPC Propaganda Site

Yet another one of those... (and follow the money)

The true journalism



Summary: JUVE, which used to do some real journalism a few years ago (including coverage of EPO corruption), lost staff, lost direction, and reinvented itself as an English-speaking propaganda platform for UPC hopefuls (litigation firms and patent trolls)

True journalism seeks the truth, not what is profitable. And likewise, a good patent office adheres to justice, not profit (the flagrantly neo-liberal approach of Campinos and Battistelli). Papers have been published to explain how profit motives doomed the USPTO, whose granted patents rarely withstand courts' scrutiny these days, owing largely to 35 U.S.C. ۤ 101.



"Don't expect the UPC to ever exist."The thugs who run the EPO hope to cheat justice by ousting judges, driving many of them to 'exile', and working to replace the courts with something they can control. It's a major coup, it is unconstitutional, and it involves a lot of lying (to the public, to politicians, to stakeholders and so on). But people at several levels have caught up and more or less scuttled the UPCA, probably for good. Don't expect the UPC to ever exist. Ask the US, don't just take our word for it.

But welcome back Amy Sandys of JUVE. She is doing UPC propaganda again. JUVE is evidently compromised -- nothing like the site it was several years ago. As we noted several months ago, JUVE is nowadays a megaphone for Team UPC. Today's article is part of a known pattern, entitled “The UPC will be operational in early 2021” (a lie as a title; yes, the headline even!)

"Shame on JUVE and it's a shame to see it committing suicide (reputation-wise)."We've seen these sorts of "fake news" headlines in Kluwer Patent Blog over the years. Loads of these! We've lost count. It's as if the job of a journalist is to drop quotes from propagandists with vested interests (Alexander Ramsay in this case).

Team UPC (Bristows' Gregory Bacon) links to it on the same day, within hours, just to say: "JUVE has reported here on its recent interview with Alexander Ramsay, Chair of the UPC Preparatory Committee, in which Mr Ramsay described the remaining preparations for the opening of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) and said it was realistic to expect that to be in early 2021."

With this piece of propaganda 'planted' in JUVE, on goes Team UPC lying to the whole world again and again.

Shame on JUVE and it's a shame to see it committing suicide (reputation-wise). Even the tweets have been equally misleading as of late. That's just where the money is when your subscribers are the patent microcosm, especially in Germany (where lots of legal 'action' takes place these days).
