Watchtroll Reaffirms Its Hatred of Science and Technology, Continues to Attack the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB)

Posted in America, Patents at 4:21 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Watchtroll now puts “Shit” in its headlines (in articles that are merely personal attacks)

Watchtroll great againSummary: The site best known for personal attacks on officials (Trump-like attitude), on judges and even on courts has sunk to new lows; the pro-patent trolls lobby has nothing left to say (except vitriol)

T

HE USPTO is not a foe of science. The only problem is, it sometimes issues patents in domains that don’t deserve patents. Why? Revenue.

“Google has a lot of patents. Google is no foe of the USPTO, either.”Google is not a foe of patents. Google has a lot of patents. Google is no foe of the USPTO, either. Only idiotic sites like Watchtroll blame Google for everything. Yesterday the Docket Navigator highlighted this case and gave an update on SEVEN Networks, LLC v Google LLC in the Eastern District of Texas, capital of patent trolls. To quote:

The court ordered the parties and their counsel to show cause why they should not be sanctioned under Rule 11, Rule 16, 28 U.S.C. § 1927, or the court’s inherent power for their attempts to preserve certain claim construction disputes until after the court’s claim construction procedure.

What we see here is a case against Google. It’s one of many. Google too is sometimes suing companies (using patents). But don’t expect Watchtroll to pay attention to it; if it did, it would simply accuse Google of “hypocrisy” or something like that (because it would not suit the bogus narrative or conspiracy theory promoted by Watchtroll).

“More Dreck on Patent Trolls from Attorneys Cozying Up to Silicon Valley” was the latest nasty headline from Watchtroll, which has basically sunk to new levels. It says “Shit” (“Dreck”) in headlines. Worse than attacking judges and courts? Watchtroll supports patent trolls, so anything that goes against trolls is “Shit”. Take a note of this. Also mind image of “fake news” insinuations (Trump style, as usual). As if patent trolling is “fake”.

“The patent microcosm is in very deep doodoo (“Shit”) if Watchtroll is its voice of opposition/resistance.”Watchtroll is losing the argument, the debate, and its writers are losing the money (derived/earned oftentimes through trolling). So its writers go all nutty; they are getting very aggressive with their words and innuendo. They also come up with fictitious claims and conpsiracy theories. Recall how badly they treated Michelle Lee until she resigned. They recently did this to another lady who cares about technology. Watchtroll has again resorted to personal attacks on some author’s motivations; pure hypocrisy coming from Watchtroll, which is authored by people who profit from patent trolls.

The patent microcosm is in very deep doodoo (“Shit”) if Watchtroll is its voice of opposition/resistance. It’s like Trump supporters who cite Breitbart in their support. We now have companies like IBM aligning with this “Shit”, which — seeing how aggressive IBM has become — says quite a lot. Watchtroll generally spreads the idea/ludicrous notion that those who care about technology are bad people; this strips off the lawyers’ infamous façade that they cherish innovation rather than their selfish interests/profits (self gain).

“Quite frankly, any person who still associates with sites like these says a lot about himself/herself.”Also yesterday Watchtroll published not one but two anti-quality (of patents) pieces. NYIPLA is fighting against the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) again, as Watchtroll reports. It reared its ugly face again not too long after it had done this weeks ago, as we covered in “AIPLA, IPO and NYIPLA Lobby Against Section 101 and Thomas Massie Wants to Stop PTAB” (Massie's misguided campaign has lost momentum since then).

In relation to RPX inter partes reviews (IPRs) and appeals to the Federal Circuit:

On Friday, July 20, 2018, the New York Intellectual Property Association (“NYIPLA”) filed an amicus brief arguing that the Petition for Writ of Certiorari should be granted in RPX Corp. v. ChanBond LLC, No. 17-1686. See the NYIPLA’s website for the full Brief of New York Intellectual Property Law Association as Amicus Curiae in Support of Neither Party, RPX Corp. v. ChanBond LLC, No. 17-1686 (July 20, 2018). This case raises the important question of whether the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (“Federal Circuit”) can refuse to hear an appeal by a petitioner from an adverse final written decision in an inter partes review (“IPR”) proceeding, on the basis of a lack of a patent-inflicted injury-in-fact, when Congress has statutorily created the right for dissatisfied parties to appeal to the Federal Circuit.

Then came Robert Stoll (former USPTO, now patent microcosm) and said: “Conversations with practitioners and inside patent counsels about PTAB have unveiled some concerns. While the USPTO claims that sequential challenges are not the problem that they have been made out to be, the drumbeat about weak estoppels after a final decision at the PTAB are echoing in the patent-holder community.”

“These people think they ‘own’ the patent system and cannot come to grips with the fact that the system was all along intended to serve science and technology, not lawyers and trolls.”It’s that same old anti-PTAB lobbying.

Quite frankly, any person who still associates with sites like these says a lot about himself/herself. These people think they ‘own’ the patent system and cannot come to grips with the fact that the system was all along intended to serve science and technology, not lawyers and trolls.

    As it turns out, numerous members of the Administrative Council of the EPO are abundantly corrupt and greedy; They falsely claim or selfishly pretend there’s a financial crisis and then moan about a "gap" that does not exist (unless one counts the illegal gambling, notably EPOTIF, which they approved), in turn recruiting or resorting to scabs that help improve ‘profit margins’

    The vision of Team Battistelli/Campinos is a hostile takeover of the entire patent system, not just patent offices like the EPO; they’d stop at nothing to get there
