The European Patent Office (EPO) has been granting [[Software Patents in Europe|software patents all across Europe]] despite the law (as per [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Patent_Convention the EPC]) ''explicitly'' forbidding it. The profit motive ultimately compromised patent ''quality''; the problem was obscured by publishers like [[IAM]] but repeatedly stressed by [[SUEPO]], the Staff Union of the EPO. There were even more mischievous practices going on, ''especially'' after the EPO's former head, Alison Brimelow, got replaced by a megalomaniac called [[Benoît Battistelli]] (now in [[CEIPI]]), who gradually drove away anything or anyone who threatened his undemocratic ambition of ''total'' power. He was helped by [[Jesper Kongstad]], [[Christoph Ernst]], [[Raimund Lutz]], and [[Željko Topić]]. There was a culture of blatant nepotism (e.g. [[Elodie Bergot]]) and disrespect for courts, e.g. [[Willy (Guillaume) Minnoye]] stating intent to ignore (disobey) court rulings. He even rejected [[ILO]] rulings and sought an unconstitutional court, the [[UPC]], promoted by big litigators such as [[Bristows LLP]]. Battistelli chose [[António Campinos]], a French dual national (born in [[France]]) from [[EUIPO]], as his successor (soon joined by former colleague [[Nellie Simon]] and [[Stephen Rowan]] from [[UKIPO]]). Both block ''Techrights'' at all EPO sites, not just in [[Germany]], in order to prevent staff from accessing facts; [[IP Kat]] was also temporarily blocked (until it stopped exposing EPO abuses). EPO problems persist to date, but European media is reluctant to mention these.

General Introduction

The European Patent Office (EPO) has been granting software patents all across Europe despite the law (as per the EPC) explicitly forbidding it. The profit motive ultimately compromised patent quality; the problem was obscured by publishers like IAM but repeatedly stressed by SUEPO, the Staff Union of the EPO. There were even more mischievous practices going on, especially after the EPO's former head, Alison Brimelow, got replaced by a megalomaniac called Benoît Battistelli (now in CEIPI), who gradually drove away anything or anyone who threatened his undemocratic ambition of total power. He was helped by Jesper Kongstad, Christoph Ernst, Raimund Lutz, and Željko Topić. There was a culture of blatant nepotism (e.g. Elodie Bergot) and disrespect for courts, e.g. Willy (Guillaume) Minnoye stating intent to ignore (disobey) court rulings. He even rejected ILO rulings and sought an unconstitutional court, the UPC, promoted by big litigators such as Bristows LLP. Battistelli chose António Campinos, a French dual national (born in France) from EUIPO, as his successor (soon joined by former colleague Nellie Simon and Stephen Rowan from UKIPO). Both block Techrights at all EPO sites, not just in Germany, in order to prevent staff from accessing facts; IP Kat was also temporarily blocked (until it stopped exposing EPO abuses). EPO problems persist to date, but European media is reluctant to mention these.
