There's a Pie in the Face (on Its Way to EPOnia)

Summary: Just like Benoît Battistelli before him, António Campinos keeps 'defacing' the EPO's Web site [1, 2] with calls to violate constitutions and break the law; patent zealots (they profit from lawsuits) who push for European software patents don't seem to mind this as long as the EPO's leadership suits the financial agenda of parasitic elements, even at the expense of science and technology (or so-called 'innovation', to use a buzzword) in Europe

THE latest statement from the FFII was reposted here last night, roughly a couple of days after it had first been published. It adds context and news (caselaw) to FFII's "Unified Patent Court is a Fake Common Court and Violates CJEU’s Jurisprudence of the Last 10 Years" (citing a paper from Prof. Thomas Jaeger) and explains the basis upon which UPC as a system will be legally challenged well before it can even formally launch.



"Those of us who actually care about unity or community (as in "Community Patent") or the EU (as in "EU Patent") should strongly oppose the UPC and openly condemn those who incite politicians to break the law."In the video above I express my thoughts on the matter and some time tomorrow I'll do a much longer video that confronts the latest disinformation from Team UPC. These litigation fanatics (profiteers) are living in their own fantasy-land and they know that it helps sales ("legal" (dis)services) when they give false hopes to prospective clients, as they've been doing for nearly a decade already. What saddens me about this whole thing is that it tarnishes the image or the reputation of the European Union (EU). The 'Eurosceptics' (sometimes code word for nationalists) occasionally say that the EU serves the goals of multinational corporations and/or "America"; if the likes of Breton (European Commission) persist in inciting member states to flagrantly violate their own constitution (using shaming or blackmail tactics -- more so while protecting criminal friends of his), who are we to dispute such allegations?

Those of us who actually care about unity or community (as in "Community Patent") or the EU (as in "EU Patent") should strongly oppose the UPC and openly condemn those who incite politicians to break the law.
