Microsoft is 'Taking Over' USPTO Like It Did at EPO

Context: President Biden Wants to Put Microsofter in Charge of the Patent Office, Soon to Penalise Patent Applicants Who Don't Use Microsoft's Proprietary Formats | Microsoft-Captured USPTO Doubles the Fines for Patent Applicants That Don't Use Microsoft

Microsoft Vidal

USPTO Leadership Updates/Microsofter: Posting what USPTO tells him to

What does the so-called 'IP Community' (patent litigation profiteers) say?

Priorities: The IP Community Has Its Say on What Should Top Vidal’s To Do List: Patent propaganda site tells her what to do having viciously attacked predecessors who did not 'obey'

New Dawn: Confirmation of Undersecretary Vidal Presents Opportunities to Expand Diversity Initiatives: IBM with Microsoft, as usual; Software patents lobbyist for IBM

IP Stakeholders Cheer as Senate Finally Confirms Vidal to Head USPTO: Litigation companies: In-house Puppet for Lobbyists

Site of the patent litigation boosters:

Decades-long patent maximalist

The most obscene mouthpiece in Europe:

Huawei IP strategy shift; Vidal’s top challenges; Patent litigation finance boom; Senators act on PTAB reform; Why the EU should let SEP licensing be; plus much more: I will tell Vidal what to do for my clients

Patrick Wingrove, a fervent lover of aggressors and corruptors:

Kathi Vidal confirmed as USPTO director; will focus on pro-bono: Vidal pro-Microsoft; PR stunts; Patrick Wingrove: I focus on boosting patent trolls and judges who work for patent trolls

More of this makes one wonder who or what the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) works for.

USPTO Launches Program To Defer Subject Matter Eligibility Responses: MoFo the notorious patent litigation Mafia; To reduce resistance to what they want regardless; screenshot

A court less likely to just do what the monopolists want:

Undoing decades of captured CAFC and 'for-profit' district courts

Summary: As we've expected (and worried), President Biden put a Microsofter in charge of the world's most important patent office (even though Microsoft is governed by criminals that the US government refuses to prosecute)
