International Labour Organisation to Issue More Judgments on 'Above the Law' European Patent Office Next Week

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has a long history of complaints about the European Patent Office (EPO)

Labour Day in Zurich



Summary: The Police State and the bogus justice system (kangaroo court) of the EPO continue to receive scrutiny from the judges of ILO, which is based in Switzerland (the above image is from Labour Day in Zürich)

THE EPO, as one might say, was recently slammed by ILO, which ruled that the EPO had violated the principles of fair trial for a couple of years (impacting hundreds of cases and/or individuals).



The next set of ILOAT judgments will be announced next Wednesday, the 8th of February. Here is what ILO says: "The Administrative Tribunal held its 123rd Session from 17 October to 11 November 2016 at the International Labour Office (ILO in Geneva.

"During the Session, the Tribunal adopted 97 judgments including 22 summary procedures, which corresponds to 113 cases, 103 complainants and 188 interveners from 21 organisations. The Tribunal registered 8 withdrawals.

"The Tribunal's judgments will be exceptionally announced in two parts. Four judgments will be announced in public on Wednesday, 30 November 2016 at 3pm at the ILO (Room XI, floor R2). All remaining judgments will be announced, as previously indicated, on Wednesday, 8 February 2017 at 3pm at the ILO (Room XI, floor R2)."

We don't know how many of these will involve the EPO, but it could be as much as a dozen or two. As soon as these become public we hope to cover some of them and highlight the important bits.

We don't expect Battistelli and his swamp to resign because ILO deems them in violation of the rules. But it sure contributes towards the collapse of this rogue element that waged a war or a coup against the EPO, exploiting the 2-billion-Euros-per-year operation for the benefit of Battistelli and his (largely) French cronies.

According to this new article, after Cambodia, China, Cuba and so on (each with its infamous tyranny) the EPO turns to Russia. Here is the background:

Back in October 2015, the offices announced their intention to launch the programme.

The aim of the PPH pilot programme is to use fast-track patent examination procedures already available at the offices, allowing applicants to obtain corresponding patents faster and more efficiently.


Now that Trump is in the White House perhaps it's time for Battistelli to also tie the knot with the US. Who needs rules and regulation anyway? Who cares about international laws? Such is the nature of today's EPO.
