EPO Logic: Businesses That Have Trademarks and/or Patents Have Only Succeeded Because of Trademarks and/or Patents



Logic homework



Summary: The shallow propaganda that began under Battistelli is still being spread several years down the line and media in the EPO's pocket is happy to uncritically relay this propaganda

THE European Patent Office (EPO) and European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) have a 'cross-pollination' problem. This means that EPO corruption has already spread to the latter. We covered examples.



As usual we ask, where's corporate media now? Why has nobody other than us covered these scandals? They're not based on conjecture; the evidence is right there. We have to simply assume that the media giants have their own agenda, which includes tolerating software patents in Europe and speaking of 35 U.S.C. ۤ 101 as if it's about "trolls" rather than software patents.

"Why has nobody other than us covered these scandals?"As we noted in the previous post, media has been busy repeating the official EPO propaganda, dressed up as a 'study'. We wrote about these latest lies earlier this week and we're hardly surprised to find World Trademark Review (same company as IAM) acting as nothing more than propaganda outlet of these liars (EPO and EUIPO management). "The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and European Patent Office (EPO) have launched the third edition of a study that" started with Battistelli and continues with António Campinos. On they go parroting the usual talking points...

State propaganda in China (the Communist Party's own 'news' site) also repeated these lies and cross-posted these in Xinhua ("Patent heavy industries generate almost half of Europe's GDP"); that seems fitting as both the EPO and CCP/CPC rely on lies to maintain their power. "The importance of IPR-intensive industries reflects the strength of the knowledge-based economy in Europe," said EPO President Antonio Campinos.

"It's not a "right" and not "property"; parroting this propaganda merely shows lack of understanding."Actually, those industries are production-intensive, not [propaganda term]-intensive (at least two letters in the acronym "IPR" are lies).

Then came English flavour of that pure propaganda (blindly repeated by Becky Bellamy of IPPro Magazine who should know better). "IP rights," she asserted, "strongly benefit UK economy"...

It's not a "right" and not "property"; parroting this propaganda merely shows lack of understanding. From the article: "Intellectual property rights-intensive industries in the UK account for nearly one in three jobs, and over 40 percent of GDP..."

That's a meaningless statement echoed by this EPO tweet: "Industries that make intensive use of IP rights generated 29% of all jobs in the EU in the period 2014-16."

EPO logic: "Industries that make intensive use of toilets generated 100% of all jobs in the EU in the period 2014-16."

"Honest media seems more dead than ever. Publications just publish what they're paid to publish. They're up for sale."We're supposed to think that because a company uses something its success is very much dependent on that something or would not be possible without it. The so-called 'research' was funded by the propaganda source, so it is not real research but corrupt research. We previously explained how the EPO had bribed scholars and even repeatedly bragged about it. Similarly, the EPO bribes European media. And retweeted by the EPO yesterday were these couple of tweets [1, 2] in German because there's similar propaganda spread to German media (which EPO management bribes). So here and also here we see German media as nothing but a PR instrument of these European institutions. Honest media seems more dead than ever. Publications just publish what they're paid to publish. They're up for sale.
