Bonum Certa Men Certa

In the Latest EPO Official Journal (April's Publication) Battistelli's Next Employer is Mentioned Literally Hundreds of Times and Promoted in 20 Pages out of 75 Pages

The EPO's publications, including the EPO's Web site, have deteriorated. They're nowadays a shrine to Battistelli's 'Empire'.

Official Journal April 2018



Summary: The EPO seems to have devolved into a playground of Battistelli rather than anything resembling a professional patent office; the evidence of this is abundant and pretty revealing

THE USPTO is sort of connected to the US government (we covered it last month; it's a little complicated), so there's still some level of accountability there. The same cannot be said about Europe because of the EU's relatively young age and the patent office which predates the EU not by much. National delegates, who can be corrupted by money (e.g. their votes 'bought'), cannot be trusted for their integrity, especially when many of them just boil down to heads of national patent offices. Staff's lost rights are a symptom of this immaturity (no effective safeguards in place) and the high level of corruption at the EPO is almost to be expected, especially when appointing to the leadership a lot of the 'Nicolas Sárközy pack', as we last noted last night.



"Judging by the number of times it's mentioned in the EPO's Official Journal, Team Battistelli might again have (mis)used EPO resources to promote employers of Battistelli other than the EPO."Battistelli and Campinos, two Frenchmen who have known each other for a long time, will soon swap seats in France. We're talking about CEIPI. CEIPI staff isn't happy; we've been told so. Judging by the number of times it's mentioned in the EPO's Official Journal, Team Battistelli might again have (mis)used EPO resources to promote employers of Battistelli other than the EPO. CEIPI is going to suffer from association with Battistelli, who in addition to his EPO scandals seems to have entangled himself in a web of scandals in French politics, as well...

Reading EPO material is no simple task. The Gazette, for example, is a massive pile of lies from start to finish (I went through the 'torture' of reading it this time around). This "Official Journal April 2018" (warning: epo.org link) was released days ago, then promoted by the EPO's online accounts. Almost half of it is CEIPI 'spam'. Is this normal? Or a new thing? We've asked some people for their opinion. To me, having paged through the whole thing, the "Official Journal" (of the EPO) looks more like a CEIPI brochure/syllabus.

"Almost half of it is CEIPI 'spam'."Based on the archives of the Municipal Council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, there are yet more scandals implicating Battistelli over there. The man has quite a history there and it's not exactly flattering. What we wrote yesterday led to the following comment:

The future

the last guest post is excellent! 2 observations about it.

1. The system Battistelli is always the same whether in Munich or At Germain en Laye: foul play.

2. The small article in the press is a self fulfilling prophecy, isn't it? I guess it was prepared and sent in advance to the journalist and that the "news" was written by Battistelli's political group.

And you see how unreliable they're to publish this puff piece in advance. Shame on them!

3. However there is another prophecy in this article: Battistelli brutally departing from the EPO. Not fulfilled yet although nearly 7000 individuals are hoping for it. I firmly believe that this part wasn't a mistake but a try to give perception of independence between St Germain en Laye and Munich/EPO.

4. Last, not least: the connection between the terms Battistelli and brutality sounds familiar



"There are more interesting revelations from the archives of the Municipal Council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye," a reader told us. This is the subject of ongoing research. Will Battistelli be held belatedly accountable like his 'padrone' Nicolas Sárközy? We shall see, but all we can do is highlight the facts; Battistelli's diplomatic immunity expires within less than a couple of months.

"Battistelli nearly doubled the number of patent grants (number of applications remained quite steady), in effect overwhelming the system with bad or questionable grants."EPO insiders nowdays refer to Benoît Battistelli as "the cancer" and speaking of cancer, amid the transition towards INPI-type 'examination' (i.e. none) patents are being granted on cancer treatments [1, 2] and Cantargia, having published this press release yesterday, is under the false impression/assumption that lack of appeals to a patent grant in a 'patent-printing machine' of Battistelli means the patents have merit. Here is what it wrote: "Cantargia AB ("Cantargia") today announces that the company's European patents covering antibody treatment of leukemia as well as solid tumours will remain in force based on the European Patent Office ("EPO") communication that no appeals have been received during the formal appeal period."

Battistelli nearly doubled the number of patent grants (number of applications remained quite steady), in effect overwhelming the system with bad or questionable grants. The damage this will cause to Europe if not the Office as well may take several decades to property measure/calculate (patents last decades). Battistelli will probably have died by then.
