EPO Uses Bunk 'Study' and Team UPC Uses Italy to Prop Up Delusions About the Unitary Patent

Corruption bred by EPO reminiscent of other scandals

Summary: In spite of so-called 'progress' in Italy, as claimed by Team UPC and AIPPI (villainous lobby), the UPC is dead in every country that matters other than Battistelli's France

THE EPO just cannot help itself. The UPC is dead/dying, so the EPO has corrupted academia, allegedly in order to pressure courts. Having already corrupted the media (bribes and threats), Battistelli's Office resorts to actions that insult the very background of many examiners. His latest 'study' is already being debunked. It's propaganda 'dressed up' as something scholarly and those footing the bill are stakeholders who are being lied to.

"Having already corrupted the media (bribes and threats), Battistelli's Office resorts to actions that insult the very background of many examiners."Yesterday, the EPO yet again pushed this propaganda, as it had been doing every day for the past week or so. "This study [sic] assesses the role of the European patent system in supporting the circulation of inventions through trade & foreign direct investment," the EPO wrote. But as even some people in the area argued, it's flawed. “Seems to rely on dodgy assumption about stronger patent protection leading to greater trade and inward investment," David Pearce wrote about it. He is a former 'Kat'.

It's not hard to see that Team UPC and Team Battistelli presently scrape the bottom of the barrel. If they corrupt some academics in the process, so be it. I happened to have a conversation about such corruption of academia less than a day ago. A very senior academic (Head of Centre) told me that this issue had become worryingly rampant. Academics are basically being paid (bribed) to produce lies. Such is the case with the EPO here, along with LSE and others.

"Academics are basically being paid (bribed) to produce lies. Such is the case with the EPO here, along with LSE and others."Both Team Battistelli and Team UPC have corrupted the media, but as far as we're aware, only Team Battistelli also corrupts academia.

Looking at the latest talking point from Team UPC, it's about Italy. it is ignoring all the hard barriers and pretending -- already -- that Milan replaces London and all is therefore fine and dandy. Self-delusion.

"Looking at the latest talking point from Team UPC, it's about Italy."Bristows' Gregory Bacon wrote: "A local division of the UPC will be in Milan (in an existing court building at via San Barnaba 50, which has potential for expansion), and Milan is also a potential location for the central division’s business currently allocated to London, if the UK cannot participate in the UPC following Brexit (see here)."

Team UPC in Italy said: "The Italian Parliament approved the Protocol on Privileges and Immunities of Unified Patent Court."

AIPPI wrote: "One more step to #UPC: Italian Parliament approved Protocol on Privileges and Immunities..."

But the issue is not Italy. Italian isn't even an official language for the UPC. Italy does not have so many EPs. So the above is designed to distract or to shift attention. Bristows' Brian Cordery, who has been pretty much invisible lately, chose to cover an entirely different topic yesterday and Bristows staff inside IP Kat has said absolutely nothing about the UPC for months.

"But the issue is not Italy. Italian isn't even an official language for the UPC."FFII's Benjamin Henrion has meanwhile updated the petition against UPC and wrote: "In need of people in the UK to oppose the UPC monster next wesdnesday, an undemocratic agreement with software patents backdoor..."

We very much doubt any progress can be made on this in the UK. The subject/agenda has been repeatedly shelved (not that Team UPC mentioned that) and it's no better in Germany. Without both countries giving the green light, nothing is going to happen and due to Brexit talks it can take years for any substantial progress. Battistelli is leaving in just 7 months.
