UPC Deceit
Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 4.0

Summary: Today’s video runs through the typical (weekly) lies from Team UPC — lies that are very easy to debunk; Team UPC not only drafted the thing but also looks to profit from it while misleading politicians and bribing publishers to spread intentionally misleading statements (lies)

THE FIGHT AGAINST European software patents is still going on. We’re making small wins, but the war isn’t over. It’s always far from over because the lobbyists have deep pockets and endless ambition, patience, zeal. Each little battle counts and catastrophic reactions (or panic) are indicative of gains. Like meltdowns we see from EPO management and Team UPC…

We keep pushing. We need the same persistence and perseverance as those rogue lobbyists. The facts and the laws are on our side, not theirs.

Yesterday we published annotated screenshots of lies and fake news from Team UPC, an alliance that propped up Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos to lessen the quality of EPO-granted patents. Their objective is to increase the scope of patents without the required changes to law/s. Then they hope to replace the patent courts with their own kangaroo tribunals, wrongly presuming validity of European Patents, whose fast-declining quality means they’re not even compliant with the laws, notably EPC.

“When asked by Ars, the EPO’s spokesperson mentioned the imminent arrival of the unitary patent system as an important reason for revising the EPO’s internal rules…”

Article by Dr. Glyn Moody (notice that they speak of imminent arrival more than six years ago

UPC: Turning Patent Lawyers Into Liars and the Media Into Their Money-Grabbing Megaphone (Platform for Fake News)

Posted in Deception, Europe, Patents at 9:03 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Team UPC is inciting to break the law

Miquel Montañá (Clifford Chance): UPC: A reply to those who, with the help of a crystal ball, have questioned the arguments as to why the PPA is not legally in force

Bardehle Pagenberg: IP Quick Tip: How and when can you get a unitary patent? Loaded question; You wish; By who?

Bardehle Pagenberg: IP Quick Tip: How and when can you get a unitary patent?  Loaded question again; Conflict of interest

Georg Anetsberger Bardehle Pagenberg)/ Germany: IP Quick Tip: How And When Can You Get A Unitary Patent? (Podcast)
Marketing; Longtime boosters of software patents

Bardehle Pagenberg - Jan Bösing: Bifurcation at the UPC: Bardehle Pagenberg means conflict of interest; Which Bardehle Pagenberg has lobbies for in vain for many years;  Who developed this???

Opt-out, Unitary Patent, and Validation Strategies for the UPC: This entire Web site is sponsored propaganda

Simmons & Simmons LLP: Evidence, experts and witnesses at the UPC: Prominent UPC lobbyists (who lie, too): JUVE has no journalistic integrity; They show who the real bosses are

Injunctions at the UPC: Here we go again; is this the REAL purpose of the site?

Amy Sandys: Dexcom and Abbott’s fight over glucose monitoring patents intensifies in Europe: Lobbyist or journalist?

Sponsored Content by Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard P.C.: Protecting your inventions in Europe? Unitary patents could prove useful; USA! Paid-for lie, conflict of interest; Profitable for this article's author

Junk By Jakob Pade Frederiksen: Preparing for the Unitary Patent: Marketing junk disguised as 'article'; Familiar face, EPO regime's booster; Based on Team UPC alone? They keep delaying, as usual

Rory O’Neill: UPC special focus: Invalidity risk a bitter pill for pharma to swallow; No, maybe stop repeating what your paymasters tell you to say; Sponsors undisclosed as this is meant to look like an informative news site

Jones Day/Olga Bezzubova, Thomas Bouvet, Andreas Holzwarth-Rochford, Gerd Jaekel, Ping Li , Alastair McCulloch, Christian Paul, Lamberto Schiona and Dorothée Weber-Bruls: European Union: A New Dawn For European Patents: The Unitary Patent And The Unified Patent Court:  Not really; conflict and subjective advice

Jones Day/Olga Bezzubova, Thomas Bouvet, Andreas Holzwarth-Rochford, Gerd Jaekel, Ping Li , Alastair McCulloch, Christian Paul, Lamberto Schiona and Dorothée Weber-Bruls: European Union: A New Dawn For European Patents: The Unitary Patent And The Unified Patent Court: No, it does not even exist yet; Recycling and scattering the same webspam elsewhere; The creation of a new European Unified Patent Court (“UPC”) and a new patent with unitary effect (“Unitary Patent”), in which almost all member states of the European Union participate, is the most important change in the European patent system since the European Patent Convention came into effect in October 1977. It paves the way for a unified approach to patents in Europe and will fundamentally change the international patent litigation landscape.

Jones Day/Olga Bezzubova, Andreas Holzwarth-Rochford  Ping Li and Dorothée Weber-Bruls/United States: The Unitary Patent And The Unified Patent Court: Oh, it's you again??? Another marketing piece? You said this for 8 years already! It never happens

Michelle Davies and Rachel Fetches (HGF Ltd)/UK: Pharmaceutical Licensing Group Webinar: The Unitary Patent And Unified Patent Court; So-called; More like lobbyist than contributor; Patent cartel

AWA - Louise Jonshammar: Are you ready for the Unitary Patent? Not even law and constitutions are ready to allow it; Will or would? Questions as headlines and loaded headlines too

REGIMBEAU - Frédérique Durieux and Stéphanie Celaire: Whether or not to opt out of the competence of the Unified Patent Court: Another issue for European patent owners: Loaded headline again. Not really? It's not legal.

Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP: Strategic Considerations for Opting in or out of the Unified Patent Court: We make money from mass litigation, not innovation; There's no UPC and they already talk about opting out of something that does not exist

Maucher Jenkins - James Cross and Hugh Dunlop: Opt out of the UPC and opt back in later - a low-risk choice: Are you high? They keep pushing back the date; they're done this for at least 8 years; Maybe the risk is investing in something that does not exist and isn't legal. No unitary patents exist.

Rebekah Gay, Emma Iles and Sebastian Moore (Herbert Smith Freehills): European Union: Emma And Rebekah Talk IP: Better Together? Europe's New Unified Patent Court: Hypothetical and still illegal; Patents are patents They are not 'IP'

Rebekah Gay, Emma Iles and Sebastian Moore (Herbert Smith Freehills): European Union: Emma And Rebekah Talk IP: Better Together? We're sticking our 'IP' marketing everywhere as if it's information rather than shameless self-promotional advocacy of lies

Gowling WLG - Gordon Harris and Michael Carter: Opting out of the Unified Patent Court? Our guide for patent owners: Marketing and lobbying; There's no opt OUT of something that does NOT EVEN EXIST; There's no arrival as it is illegal and you have been saying this very  same thing for nearly a decade already!

Conference & CLE Calendar: A lot of marketing spam for firms with an agenda, but disguised as 'events' or 'webinars' of 'conferences'

Taylor Wessing - Verena Bertram, Michael Schächinger, Philipp Krusemarck, Jan Phillip Rektorschek and Alina Krukover: Patents: The Unified Patent Court: Pay us 300 euros an hour to lie to you!

Taylor Wessing - Dr Paul England, Dr. Wim Maas and Adrian Toutoungi: Seven steps to UPC readiness: Getting ready for something that the law does not even permit? Could. Team UPC said the same about 2015.

Summary: The above 26 screenshots (with necessary annotation added) hopefully illuminate the degree of deceit, manipulation, bribery and distortion of public discourse (fake news and advocacy of patently unlawful activities)


EPO.org (Official EPO Site) Continues to Promote Illegal Agenda and Exploit Ukraine for PR Stunts That Help Unaccountable Crooks

EPO Attention-Shifting
Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 4.0

Summary: epo.org has been turned into a non-stop propaganda machine of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos because the EPO routinely breaks the law; it’s rather tasteless that while Ukrainians are dying the EPO’s mob exploits Ukraine for PR purposes

THERE is a crisis in EPOnia, but insiders can see that a lot better than outsiders because there’s a PR onslaught — pardon the pun — trying to pretend all is normal. Those with deep pockets (money unlawfully earned) can expend some ‘resources’ on Public Relations (PR). EPOnia is run by mobsters and they pocket a lot of money at everyone else’s expense. More on that will follow in the next post and video.

We’ve only just published this article and cartoon about the EPO’s connections to Belarus. The above video concerns the EPO’s noise-centric response (warning: epo.org link) to scandals, as explained in the annotated screenshot below.

EPO noise section: UPC is illegal; Pretending to care for science; Greenwashing; Just for a photo op or political stunt
The EPO’s noise section with annotation (and four faces of liars and frauds added)

The video ends with discussion about the UPC illegalities (kangaroo court for European software patents and more; even former EPO executives state that it's illegal, this new comment is one of many!) and reactions to inappropriate behaviour by Campinos (some say he should resign or be fired).


Jim Zemlin’s Wife is Funded by Puppies (Microsoft)

Posted in Deception, GNU/Linux, Microsoft at 5:58 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

2011 quote:

'I think we just don't care that much [about Microsoft] anymore ... They used to be our big rival, but now it's kind of like kicking a puppy.'  - Jim Zemlin

It pays off to shine the shoes of moneyed interests (no need to code anything or actually use Linux):


Summary: Jim Zemlin — like his wife — is bagging millions from Microsoft, but that’s clearly a conflict of interest for the Linux Foundation


Linux Foundation Almost Never Uses Open Source

Posted in Deception, GNU/Linux at 5:08 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Linux Foundation uses Google Docs
Mixed messsage from the Linux Foundation

Summary: The Linux Foundation uses proprietary software (look where they hire and take money from) and be sure they’re probably not even aware of it

[Meme] What Managers (Really) Mean by Acting Professionally

Posted in Deception at 8:18 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Looks, not substance

Coding casually; Coding 'professionally'

Summary: The myth of 'professionalism' needs to die along with the façade of conformity as prerequisite for employment (Linus Torvalds can work just fine in a bathrobe in his own home)
