More Vomit-Inducing Publicity Stunts From Benoît Battistelli and the EPO Management

Posted in Deception, Europe, Marketing, Patents at 2:30 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Vomit on people
Original article

Summary: The European Patent Office, which is in a state of crisis, latches onto anything conceivably useful (even terror attacks) in an effort to somehow repair its image

THE EPO is in a state of crisis. The Board explicitly says so and a new staff survey makes this abundantly clear. The EPO’s management now exploits another crisis in order to distract/divert away from its own. To twist the words from the article above, EPO staff ought to vomit on all these Battistellites who suddenly say they are their friends.

Milking Islamic Terrorism

“To twist the words from the article above, EPO staff ought to vomit on all these Battistellites who suddenly say they are their friends.”Based on this month’s BR TV program (which drives the EPO's management up the wall), the EPO’s notorious Stasi-esque unit [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] leads to deaths, but nevertheless, Benoît Battistelli, like a classic Republican politiciannot a professional and charismatic manager — is quick to take advantage of disasters. Battistelli already paints himself as fighting Nazis and criminals, not people who speak truth or work within a staff union (perfectly legitimate and commendable activity).

Benoît Battistelli is exploiting deaths again (warning: this is a link to epo.org, so consider using the Twitter link instead, even as a referrer/middleman). We surely saw that coming. This seems like a Battistelli tradition as he also did this after the terror attacked in Paris. Watch who signs these messages. This is Battistelli’s own mastermind. He blurs the gaps between politics and (what was supposed to be) a public service.

“Battistelli already paints himself as fighting Nazis and criminals, not people who speak truth or work within a staff union (perfectly legitimate and commendable activity).”Fear not Battistelli, ladies and gentleman, he’s there to protect you from terrorists (with his unnecessary luxury which is several bodyguards). Or something like that…

Calling Whistleblowers Nazis

If there is militant/militaristic atmosphere at the EPO, it’s because Battistelli and his clique hire people from the Army, even the Belgian Army. They are then attacking critics of the Battistellites (Željko Topić for instance), calling them “Nazis” and all sorts of other smears. Someone in IP Kat was asking yesterday about the judge whom Battistelli had been illegally/indefinitely suspending (keeping on 'house ban' for well over a year) and then personally attacking (character assassination) for allegedly saying the truth about Željko Topić. To quote: “Has anyone heard of the disciplinary procedure against the suspended DG3 member?

“I’ve not seen any decision of the AdminCouncil how to continue, or to stop the disciplinary procedure.

“If the AdminCouncil wants the President’s decisions to be perceived as fair, how about the disciplinary procedure falling under their authority?”

“Watch this disturbing reversal of victimhood. Compare that to the WIPO scandal (whistleblowers also).”As a little/short recap, the Administrative Council was stupid enough to accept Battistelli’s request to demand from the Board of Appeals that their judge gets dismissed (after all the character assassination against this judge), whereupon the Administrative Council got denied. What a huge embarrassment that was — and what that surely sheds negative light on Mr. Kongstad. Later on the Administrative Council learned its lesson and no longer even made such a request to the Board of Appeals. There was a rift between the Administrative Council and the Battistellites, at long last.

At that stage, we suppose, the Administrative Council (and Kongstad personally) realised that they were just being the Battistellites’ pawns and the judge is likely innocent (recent reports suggest he’s now represented by the same lawyer as SUEPO’s). Maybe it’s Željko Topić, part of Team Battistelli, whom they should be investigating/pressuring, not the judge who allegedly spoke about Topić (allegedly to the Administrative Council too).

Watch this disturbing reversal of victimhood. Compare that to the WIPO scandal (whistleblowers also).

Spreading More Lies

The EPO just can’t help it. Lies, lies, and more lies come out of the EPO’s Twitter account, e.g. this one (among many more), ignoring a lot of criticisms which we wrote about before [1, 2, 3]. Considering the aforementioned crisis, imagine what will happen in a year or two when pending patents will be too scarce to demonstrate any growth at all (no matter how one cooks the books). Will EPO patents be worth much at all at that stage? Quality is said to have significantly stagnated/declined, which isn’t surprising (overstressed examiners would be unable to properly research the input and give constructive output).

Another Wasteful Propaganda Event

Silly, cheesy, wasteful (at the expense of public resources) self-glorification events are nothing new under the Battistelli regime. The EPO is already preparing another misleading event, just like the one it had last year, covered by EPO-sponsored self-censoring "media partners".

“The EPO is already preparing another misleading event, just like the one it had last year, covered by EPO-sponsored self-censoring “media partners”.”We don’t know who will be the inventor of the year, but it’s possible that in 2016 EPO will be the scandal of the year (in Europe or internationally), following the footsteps of past victors such as BP or Volkswagen.

Lithuanian Spin

Several days ago we wrote about the bizarre deal with Lithuania (especially bizarre given the timing). We have found only one puff piece that paid any attention to it. It came from WIPR, but we cannot help wondering if it really came after some prodding/pressure from the EPO’s PR team. There is a lot of PR money in circulation right now.
