EPO Advertises Jobs for Lawyers That Combat EPO Staff, 'Emergency' Call Surfacing

What might be expected when unjustifiably and illegally firing people

EPO 'emergency'



Summary: The EPO is hiring what seems like a large legal team that's directed against EPO staff; this doesn't bode well for the future of the workforce

WE DO NOT WISH TO sound alarmist, but things at the European Patent Office (EPO) took a major turn recently. There are several key escalations other than the strike, the financial report, the waste of money on buildings, the discussion about Haar and the contract for Third Reich goons. We're quickly losing count of all the latest António Campinos scandals as we'll soon add wiki pages for Topić and Lutz, not just Battistelli. The EPO is chaotic and our original (old) focus on software patents in Europe already seems minor in comparison.



Is there an EPO 'emergency'? Maybe. Depends on the definition of emergency; there's certainly an "emergency resolution". USF wrote about this in French, but SUEPO wrote in English (having made a copy of the accompanying PDF): "The Member Organisations of Union Syndicale Fédérale, gathered in Congress in Bratislava, adopted on 2 June 2019 an emergency resolution on the situation of EPO staff and the unfair treatment of SUEPO trade unionists. Adopted unanimously, this emergency resolution was forwarded to the Director and the Governing Board of the EPO as soon as the Congress closed."

Techrights intends to publish some more information about more EPO scandals in the coming weeks. There's much left in our pipeline, which is growing fast again (lately a lot of things have happened). The EPO's management, for example, is apparently expecting a lot more conflicts with staff, not less of them.

"Job candidacies at the EPO," according to a reader of ours, say a lot about the present and future. "Toni Campinos (also known as "Toni Campari" by the Lufthansa) pretends he wants to shift from a culture of litigation towards a culture of dialogue. Fair enough only why then does the EPO need to recruit so many lawyers for the Appeals' Committee and the field Employment law if it was to honestly aim to reduce litigation?"

Watch these:



As we said last night, media that claims to cover patent news mostly ignores everything that puts the EPO in a negative light. Team UPC in particular is hellbent on hiding it. One can see Team UPC (Out-Law.com is owned by a Team UPC firm) boosting EPO and EUIPO lies as recently as yesterday. It shows whose side they're with: oppressive management that breaks the law.

We've mostly dropped US coverage; I've taken days off work this week. I have more to publish than time permits me to publish and I expect that as the next big meeting approaches (later this month) we're going to see a lot of 'dirty laundry' coming out. Almost nobody is willing to cover it, even when spoon-fed all the pertinent facts and evidence. This is an editorial decision of media owners/publishers. It's a betrayal of Europe as it covers up serious abuses that destroy many people's lives.
