The Fall of the UPC - Part XV: A Three-Week Parade of Lies From Team UPC and Its Media Collaborators

Fat liars. Lying about.

Sleeping sea lions



Summary: Team UPC continues to shamelessly lie about the fate of the Unified Patent Court Agreement (UPCA); we've studied all the responses we were able to find and we'll tackle them one by one (or firm by firm)

TOMORROW marks 3 weeks since the judges (or Justices) in Germany dealt one final death blow to the UPC, crushing the remaining hopes of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, who two weeks ago lied about what had happened in the official "news" section of the European Patent Office (EPO).



We might as well politely note that the EPO said nothing about it since. It hasn't even tweeted about it. All it left is a misleading headline with a quote from Campinos; later it wonders why people generally don't trust the EPO...

"We might as well politely note that the EPO said nothing about it since. It hasn't even tweeted about it. All it left is a misleading headline with a quote from Campinos; later it wonders why people generally don't trust the EPO..."Not even the EPO's own staff trusts the EPO.

What about media that covered the UPC/A over the past few years? More than 90% of it was wrong. All those articles about the 'impending' UPC were wrong. Anyone who relied on such articles for decision-making purposes may have wasted a lot of money. Law firms controlled such media and made "sales" this way.

The untold truth is that many front groups of law firms are disguised as "publishers"... some hire English and history graduates with no experience in (or knowledge in) law. Their job is just to collate quotes (lies) from lawyers, presenting these as factual articles with "reliable" sources. We don't want to name any authors here; but few of them were mentioned in passing (previous parts).

"They tell readers or clients either what they want to hear or is beneficial to themselves (in the short term). They mislead people and rip them off, even consciously."Today we focus on some law firms. We are going to show how most of them persisted with the lies instead of acknowledging they had told lies (or were innocently wrong). Some law firms, which we will name, were more frank and more sincere about the situation. We'll give them some credit.

For the sake of tidiness and structural organisation we're going to separate every firm or group of firms into clusters, each occupying a part of the series. At the end we'll look back at it all and make a sort of scorecard or scoresheet or scoreboard. People deserve to know which law firms are more honest than others. Some are just blatant propaganda and lies; the same is true for some publishers. They tell readers or clients either what they want to hear or is beneficial to themselves (in the short term). They mislead people and rip them off, even consciously.
