Bonum Certa Men Certa

The Conspiracy of Patent Lawyers for UPC and Battistelli's Role in Preparing by Firing People

Bristows and Bird & Bird among the culprits

Trojan horse



Summary: The parasitic firms that lobby for the UPC and actually create it -- firms like those that pass money to Battistelli's EPO -- are doing exactly the opposite of what Europe needs

THE EPO is in a dire and sad state because of its top-level management, which is effectively a cabal of 'yes men' to Battistelli. The sociopaths find these positions attractive and if they're French and former colleagues of Battistelli, then they already have some job requirements covered. Megalomaniacal tendencies of Battistelli are rather contagious and it shows. This takes its toll on staff. Many are thankful to have never accepted a job offer from Battistelli's EPO as there is an element of entrapment to it (Battistelli can veto employment choices even after someone leaves the Office).



"Megalomaniacal tendencies of Battistelli are rather contagious and it shows. This takes its toll on staff."There are even worse things coming out of the EPO and they impact everyone in Europe, not just EPO staff. There's no escaping the wrath of Battistelli and his grand plan, notably the UPC which rumours say he wishes to head (in spite of retirement age). The EPO routinely lobbies for the UPC rather than focus on patent examination (the EPO's real purpose).

All one needs to know about the UPC is that it would harm European businesses and the media misleads about it (EPO's payments to European media companies contribute to this). The UPC is being designed and refined by and for patent lawyers, primarily in order to increase their overall profit/reputation, typically by making the number of lawsuits greater and the damages higher. Coup by occupation is all it boils down to, and it is not EU-centric either. The moment more people come to grips with what the UPC is and who it has been optimised for is the moment the whole thing comes tumbling down like ACTA in Europe, but right now a lot of UPC proceedings and intentionally kept in the dark, except when politicians are approached to ratify under the false preteses and the premise that this kind of coup is all about "unity", "harmony", "EU", and "community" (among other euphemisms whose purpose is to perfume this very bad deal/bundle). A lot of the misinformation about the UPC just 'happens' to come from Battistelli, who has been promoting this whole scheme for a very long time along with other Frenchmen who consider French a more important language than Spanish (how convenient for them).

"A lot of the misinformation about the UPC just 'happens' to come from Battistelli, who has been promoting this whole scheme for a very long time along with other Frenchmen who consider French a more important language than Spanish (how convenient for them)."Based on some sad news from self-serving UPC propagandists, the Dutch people have been put aside again while the patent microcosm (includes the EPO and its clients/lawyers) used control of politicians to ram UPC down the country's throat. This is a gross attack not only on democracy but on human rights. As I put it earlier in relation to similar plans in Germany ("UPC software patent ratification is on the agenda of the Bundestag this Thursday evening around 21H," according to Benjamin Henrion), the UPC tests whether a nation is a client of its citizens or of patent lawyers and their foreign clients. It is a corporate takeover attempt, much like ISDS. Will it work?

Well, never for a moment believe that the UPC is inevitable. It's not. To say so is to help the propaganda strategy of the patent microcosm, which has grown visibly stressed about UPC woes this month. Things aren't going as they hoped because even Battistelli and his minions say that UPC might not happen. There are still many barriers.

"Can Europe beat its enemies, those scheming to undermine European laws (and the EPC) to make a new "order"?""Kluwer UPC News blogger" is what Wouter Pors and the lads call their blog now. It's just more UPC propaganda like Bristows' (with "Bristows UPC" for marketing) and Wouter Pors has quite a reputation for UPC meddling, e.g. [1, 2, 3]. These are the very same people who 'engineered' much of the UPC and are actively pushing software patents into Europe, as well as patent trolls. To them, it's all about money (theirs, at everyone else's expense).

Can Europe beat its enemies, those scheming to undermine European laws (and the EPC) to make a new "order"? We sure hope that more people will join the battle. Just look which firms are behind this site (top) that promotes UPC events right now (EPLAW). UPC is for the lawyers, by the lawyers, against the people, definitely not by the people. Those same lawyers recently mentioned that Battistelli basically crushes the Office and ruins patent quality by demolishing appeal boards, in effect paving the way to UPC (where appeals would be dealt with differently).

Let's bury the UPC before it's too late. Now it the time to take action and expose what UPC is really all about.
