Unified Patent Court (UPC) Leak Shows That 'Team UPC' and the EPO's Management Are Knowingly Breaking the Law

Summary: Putting aside low-quality, easy-to-refute/debunk and very traditional EPO disinformation (self-congratulatory and self-serving false headlines, followed by mindless drivel in large quantities), the reality of the matter is that due to Brexit UPC is simply -- as per the law -- fundamentally doomed; any attempts to simply ignore or brush this aside are willful violations of the law, but then again such violations would be very much consistent with what we've been seeing for well over a decade at the EPO (they tell us that breaking the law is acceptable for the "greater good" and in the process they tarnish the EU's reputation, weakening the EU's integrity and worsening its legitimacy)

THE VIDEO above covers a document we published earlier today. A lot of the underlying issues were alluded to this morning, but in the video I describe them in a greater level of depth. In a nutshell, UPC/A never fulfilled its most basic requirements and nevertheless 'Team UPC' is trying to fake it.



Just pretend UK surrendered to UPCATreaties and agreements at this exceptionally high level (such as passage of courts' power) aren't meant to come into force by false declarations in the EPO's Web site and dozens of sites of patent litigation firms. Constitutional courts are supposed to carefully examine the details and proper economic analyses should be carried out. As we've repeatedly said, we can expect to see (yet again) what happened in 2017 (5 years ago) when the matter got redirected/rerouted to the German Federal Constitutional Court. Even if 'Team UPC' and the EPO more or less 'bought' all the so-called 'news' sites (to disseminate falsehoods and spread jingoism) that ought not affect the underlying facts. Sure, they've used the media to influence/pressure judges and even put potential moles inside courts, but they do so at the expense of the perception of integrity and lawfulness at the EU. If they carry on doing this, the EU itself will suffer. Having Benoît Battistelli's buddy inside the Commission has done enough harm already. And it's not even over.

“..."baffle them with bullshit" is part of the 'fake it till you make it' ideology. Many in the so-called business community admire that and aspire to emulate it.”

An associate of ours has noted that €«"baffle them with bullshit" is part of the 'fake it till you make it' ideology. Many in the so-called business community admire that and aspire to emulate it.€»

For them, it's a case of outnumbering (or drowning out) facts with lies, as this is how they try to win, essentially by sheer repetition of lies; it is a mentally tiring, sometimes outright exhausting, battle for those who stick to facts. The exhaustion is seen as desirable; "that's one of their goals," the associate said, "but "Illegitimi non carborundum"..."

One day I'll become rich by serving people who wanted dad deadThey have repeatedly done this to judges, too. They pressure them to issue decisions before facts are properly understood and before the ramifications are known. We've covered examples of that over the years. The pressure is subsidised by 'Team UPC'. It's worse than lobbying as they turn media sites into propaganda mills and "attack sites". In the video above I mention what Sheldon Adelson did to the media when judges weren't leaning his way.

António Campinos fronting for Team UPC
That's António Campinos fronting for 'Team UPC' only 3 days after he became EPO President. As if this was his sole goal and what he was given the job for (despite a lack of experience in patents). He already knew about Brexit, which preceded the first constitutional complaint in Germany (2017-2020; two more came later in an abundantly toxic political atmosphere), so unlike his father, who fought against the European Empire and against colonialism (the origin of the name "campinos" was once apt) the young Campinos, António, chose to basically become an occupier and shameless henchman for robber barons, opportunistically undoing his father's legacy for personal gain, both by lying and by breaking all the rules (subverting democracy itself).
