EPO's Battistelli, Who Breaks the Law, Subverts the Course of Justice and Refuses to Obey Court Orders, Says the Unthinkable Amid Terror Attacks

Given the seriousness of these matters, will anyone bother publicly challenging the lies below?

Justice at EPO



Summary: Terrible attacks a day ago in France are being exploited by Benoît Battistelli for black comedy or a truly absurd statement under the EPO's "news" section

WHENEVER there's a terror incident in Europe the EPO issues a corny statement either from Battistelli, about Battistelli, or quoting Battistelli. They are trying hard to frame Battistelli as some kind of heroic sympathetic leader who protects staff from terror and all his atrocities (and wasteful bodyguards) are somehow justified "because terrorism!" It has become such a common tradition that this morning I predicted it would happen within hours and it soon turned out that I was absolutely right. It only took very little time for Battistelli to piggyback terror incidents again (warning: epo.org link, which can facilitate tracking of cookies/IP addresses) and the wording therein was hypocritical to the extreme.



"They are trying hard to frame Battistelli as some kind of heroic sympathetic leader who protects staff from terror and all his atrocities (and wasteful bodyguards) are somehow justified "because terrorism!"""Just patent terror attacks," Petra Kramer wrote, "that will surely stop ISIS. Unleash the patent trolls. Sue terrorists!"

"Outrageous and pathetic that Battistelli misuses such an awful event to disseminate lies," wrote another person, adding: "EPIC fail!"

Benjamin Henrion laughed at the part which says EPO believes in an open and inclusive society based on fundamental principles of freedom, equality and justice after I had pointed this out. One whom the EPO had bullied with bogus trademark claims replied with "yep and I believe in an open and inclusive society where beer would flow from each and every fountain ;)"

For those who have not been following this saga long enough, remember that Battistelli likes to pretend to be a victim. This is his longstanding media strategy.

“Unleash the patent trolls. Sue terrorists!”
      --Petra Kramer
To understand why Battistelli 'milks' terror attacks several times per year, see our previous articles about previous such opportunistic efforts. The EPO justifies oppression by claiming that it is under attack and now it says that Battistelli "believes in an open and inclusive society based on fundamental principles of freedom, equality and justice."

Yes, Battistelli says he believes in “freedom, equality and justice” -- on the very same day that there are hearings at The Hague regarding Battistelli's abuses! Isn't that priceless? The timing could not be better because Battistelli actively fights against justice and refuses to obey the law (or even rulings from the highest courts). One might say that this is just the latest of many lies from Battistelli. To put it politely...

“Outrageous and pathetic that Battistelli misuses such an awful event to disseminate lies...”

There is this new comment about Battistelli and his own abuse of justice. It says that Battistelli "crossed a line that no President of the EPO should ever cross. After two years it came up with a reform of the BOA that is "not perfect" (a nice understatement to say that it is plainly bad). In respect of the other points of the Council resolution it seems that he also failed do deliver.

"Then what happened at the last Council? Did he blackmailed the AC by telling them "You want a reform of the BOA but I am not going to give you a better one"

"Instead of saying him "Thank you for your service we are now going to look for somebody who is fit for the job and can also draft a reasonable reform" the members of the AC probably said "How nice of you to give us some face-saving minor amendments! We approve your reform because it could have been even worse".

"The last Council was an all-time low for its members but I am afraid that worse may come in the future now that BB [Battistelli] is aware that he can force them to do whatever he wants."

We wrote about this before. "To me it looks as if he [Battistelli] was on a course set to destroy the office," said another new comment. To quote the full comment: "If I understand what you are saying, something else is more important to Battistelli than the board of appeal. What is it? What is he trying to achieve? I am asking the question because I really wonder. To me it looks as if he was on a course set to destroy the office, but this cannot be. What interest would there be in that? So where are we heading to? How will the office look in five years?"

Any justice for patents would be hard to fathom or trust when the EPO itself makes a total mockery of judges (even at The Hague). Speaking of patent justice, a decision has just been overturned and an article published about it to say: "The patents for bivalirudin (Angiomax) were upheld by a federal court following a prior ruling that they were invalid. Drugmaker the Medicines Company says it is "now considering all ... options with respect to Hospira, Mylan, and other generics."

If that was Battistelli facing this federal court, he would not panic. He does not, after all, believe that he needs to respect the rule of law and obey court orders. But hey, earlier today he said he believed in “freedom, equality and justice” just because it suited him and his media strategy (or misleading narrative).
