The European Patent Office (EPO) has been granting software patents in Europe despite the law explicitly forbidding it. The profit motive ultimately compromised quality. There are even more mischievous practices going on, especially after the EPO's former head, Alison Brimelow, got replaced by a megalomaniac called Benoît Battistelli, who drove away anything or anyone who threatens his undemocratic ambition of total power. Techrights wrote about the EPO in the following posts, organised chronologically, with addition of the following colour coding:

  • Software (abstract) patents
  • Patents on life
  • Patent maximalism/UPC
  • Institutional abuse
  • Censorship/Gagging
  • Conflict of interest/Nepotism
  • Alleged bribery
  • Favouritism/Nepotism
  • DDOS
  • Staff suicides
  • Crushing protests
  • Union-busting
  • Illegal surveillance
  • Ignoring court orders
  • Legal bullying
  • Crushing oversight or other branches
  • Propaganda/Misinformation
  • Budgetary issues
  • Character assassination/Defamation
  • Abolishing workers' rights
