The EPO’s Liar in Chief, Benoît Battistelli, is Googlebombing Again

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 5:38 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Googlebombing definition/example for the uninitiated: The European Patent Office is Googlebombing and Bamboozling the Public About Quality of European Patents

A Transparent Quality
Nice joke, Benoît! It’s always all about narcissistic Benoît, who nonchalantly bends the facts and threatens the media when it refutes his fantasies, exposes him and so on…

Summary: The latest distractions and lies from the European Patent Office (EPO), which is run by a charlatan to whom facts are an enemy, media is something to be paid for, and people are worthless “assets” to be exploited and then thrown away

THE so-called “swamp” at the EPO (to use Donald Trump’s odd term that has been adopted by the patent microcosm to demonise patent progressives) is gradually being drained, with McGinley, Minnoye, Kongstad, and Battistelli all out (or on their way out). “The Battistelli era will soon be over at the EPO,” an insider quoted IAM as saying yesterday.

There are reasons for optimism. There is progress to be celebrated.

As far as we can tell, the mainstream media covers almost none of this.

“The EPO’s management is attempting to ride the wave of the Tour de France.”We would like to draw attention to the latest utter nonsense.

The EPO’s management is attempting to ride the wave of the Tour de France. It’s posting all sorts of silly, corny tweets which we’d rather not send traffic to. Are they trying to turn it into Tour de Benoît?

This has actually led to several EPO puff pieces, based on Twitter and maybe a reach-out from the EPO's PR team. Here is one example of that:

With stage three of the Tour de France now completed and 298 separate riders having participated, the European Patent Office (EPO) has revealed the number of European patents related to bicycles.

Complete nonsense. Not news. Just ‘buzz’ or an opportunistic attempt to catch some traffic from Tour de France watchers. Also in the ‘news’ today was this ‘article’ from a law firm, more or less just parroting the EPO’s press release that we responded to several times last week. To quote:

In a recent communication, the European Patent Office (EPO) clarified that essentially biological processes for the production of plants and animals as well as plants and animals obtained by such processes are excluded from patentability.

Previously, the decisions G 2/12 and G 2/13 of the Enlarged Board of Appeal (EBA) of the EPO ruled that essentially biological processes for the production of plants and animals were excluded from patentability, while the plants and animals obtained by such processes were not excluded from patentability.

In other words, patent quality at the EPO was too bad. The EPO finally admitted this in public, as we said at the end of last year.

Looking at the EPO’s Web site today, black is sunlight and sunlight is darkness. Any reader with meager understanding of EPO matters will immediately see that it’s another lump of lies, both from the EPO’s ‘news’ section and Benoît Battistelli’s so-called ‘blog’ (warning: both links, only hours old, can be used for tracking).

“The Liar in Chief, Benoît Battistelli, is also googlebombing.”In a nutshell, the EPO keeps googlebombing the word “quality” to distract from the fact that Benoît Battistelli essentially killed patent quality. They are sparingly quoting nonsensical things from Benoît Battistelli. It’s utterly embarrassing. His face and words are plastered all over the Web site, so when he leaves next year they might have to do some very thorough site overhaul (the site has become like a shrine to him).

Now look at his ‘blog’. Holy ***! The Liar in Chief, Benoît Battistelli, is also googlebombing. He googlebombs both the word “quality” and the word “transparency” (having posted a “blog” titled “A Transparent Quality”) to distract from quality declines and secrecy. The EPO is full of corruption and nefarious acts, even deaths. The only EPO transparency comes from Techrights, which ironically enough the EPO blocks. The EPO has neither quality nor transparency. But hey, with over a million Euros a year it certainly ‘bribes’ enough journalists to repeat whatever narrative Battistelli commands.

    The "official" sources of the European Patent Office (EPO), as well as the sedated "media" that the EPO is bribing for further bias, cannot tell the truth about this very large institution; for proper examination of Europe's largest patent office one must pursue the interpretation by longtime veterans and insiders, who are increasingly upset and abused (they're being pressured to grant patents in violation of the charter of the EPO)

    The age of technology giants/monopolies devouring everything or military-funded (i.e. taxpayers-subsidised) surveillance/censorship tentacles, in effect privatised eyes of the state, may be ending; the United States can barely sustain that anymore and raising the debt ceiling won't solve that (buying time isn't the solution)



  18. Society Would Benefit From a Smartphoneshame Movement

    In a society plagued by blackmail, surveillance and frivolous lawsuits it is important to reconsider the notion of “smart” phone ownership; these devices give potentially authoritarian companies and governments far too much power over people (in the EU they want to introduce new legislation that would, in effect, ban Free software if it enables true privacy)

    Ads everywhere: Phoronix puts them at the top, bottom, navigation bar, left, and right just to read some Microsoft junk (puff pieces about something that nobody other than Microsoft even uses); in addition there are pop-ups asking for consent to send visitors’ data to hundreds of data brokers



  29. Daily Links at Techrights Turn 15, Time to Give Them an Upgrade

    This year we have several 15-year anniversaries; one of them is Daily Links (it turned 15 earlier this week) and we've been working to improve these batches of links, making them a lot more extensive and somewhat better structured/clustered



  30. Back to Focusing on Unified Patent Court (UPC) Crimes and Illegal Patent Agenda, Including the EPO's

    The EPO's (European Patent Office, Europe's second-largest institution) violations of constitutions, laws and so on merit more coverage, seeing that what's left of the "media" not only fails to cover scandalous things but is actively cheering for criminals (in exchange for money)
