Team UPC and Patent-Centric 'Media' in Europe Still Committing Suicide (Credibility Sliding Down the Cliff)

Video download link



Summary: The truly awful state of media that covers EPO and UPC affairs isn't too shocking; people need only examine their funding sources

THE EDGE of a cliff is a neat metaphor; it helps explain what has long happened to the reputation of the EPO after a decade of corruption (thanks, Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos). The Office is unable (maybe also unwilling) to recruit, patent quality has collapsed (almost each week we read about European Patents being invalidated or revoked in European courts), and all the crooks have left right now is deception, deception, deception, and... more deception. They even bribe academia and media for this deception. Follow the money, trace the strings...



"Don't visit those site for facts but for pure fiction. Pure fantasy. Lies and distortions, motivated by money."Our next post will deal with the latest deception, but the video above speaks of the laughing stocks IAM, Managing IP (MIP), WIPR and IP (AstraZeneca) Kat have become. Juve too has joined that club, as it pretty much defected in the sense that instead of exposing EPO abuses and it's nowadays just reprinting insulting (revisionism) lies from corrupt EPO management and Team UPC. As hard as it is to grasp, Juve (or JUVE Patent) 5 years ago was a profoundly different publisher. It did actual journalism; now it's just spam and marketing, sometimes with some substance to spice things up. They might mention actual EPO staff a few times a year. Most of the time they're advertising law firms.

CliffThis latest puff piece is quite the hallmark or symptom of what happened to JUVE. It's going even further than EPO management when it comes to reputation laundering. It's no longer astounding given the track record of JUVE, as observed in recent years (gutter level one year ago). "The EQE is a pre-requisite exam for almost anyone wishing to be admitted as a qualified European patent attorney, and to represent clients before the EPO," says the article, without mentioning the e-EQE glitches or the EQE corruption.



The video above actually starts by discussing Bristows LLP, which JUVE is advertising for. The UPC complaints are not a priority at all (they will probably be dealt with years from now) and the few people (or person) still willing to talk about it -- even for the first time in months -- wants us to think UPC is anything but dead.

The reputation of Bristows LLP is already dead; key people leave the firm and/or retire. Bristows LLP lies to the public, lies to politicians, and shamelessly works for patent trolls (i.e. Bristows LLP attacks Europe itself). To see that some media is still giving Bristows LLP a platform says so much about the media, including JUVE. Don't visit those site for facts but for pure fiction. Pure fantasy. Lies and distortions, motivated by money.
