Team UPC is So Drunk on Kool-Aid That It Has Become Truly Comical!

Where yu' goin' mate?

UPC and Berlin



Summary: The lies and fabrications of Team UPC show no signs of abatement; now they just do so for our amusement and in the process they compromise what used to be reasonably OK blogs

THE US knows that the UPC is doomed. António Campinos hasn't even mentioned it for about a year and Battistelli became virtually invisible (absent from the media since the Benalla scandals). As for the European Patent Office (EPO)? Well, it formally mentioned it about a month ago, for the first time in about a year. But notice the pattern though; what used to be on everybody's lips on a daily basis is very seldom even alluded to.



"Did everyone notice who runs IP Kat since 2-3 years ago?"So who still mentions it? Usually media sites that are in Team UPC's pockets. Most of the media stopped printing lies for lying lawyers, but some stand to benefit from perpetuating the lies. Heck, some of them are literally owned and edited by Team UPC! Did everyone notice who runs IP Kat since 2-3 years ago? These are patent maximalists whose clients include patent trolls and proponents of software patents in Europe (who never even wrote a single line of code in their entire lives!).

Last night we saw Kluwer Patent blogger (Bristows quite likely) publishing this nonsense with the typically misleading headline in Kluwer Patent Blog (only hours after we had complained about these headlines from Kluwer Patent Blog). The text is almost the same as in Bristows' blog, so we assume it's Team UPC running ahead with JUVE's utter nonsense (coordinated fluff) while guarding against opposing comments, as usual. Yes, they delete some comments from this blog. Bristows staff does this (we produced evidence of that before). "According to Ramsey," it says, "the announcement by judge Huber in an MIP interview earlier this month, that the FCC is likely to decide the UPCA case in the first quarter of 2020, is “very good news because it’s fast approaching.”"

"That phone interview with Patrick Wingrove received mostly scorn and condemnation (except from Team UPC)..."So here they are alluding to judge Huber after that inappropriate interview with a Team UPC advocacy front, Managing IP (even the courts/colleagues distanced themselves from it [1, 2, 3]). That phone interview with Patrick Wingrove received mostly scorn and condemnation (except from Team UPC) and yesterday Wingrove decided to defend the JUVE piece, writing to me in Twitter about it (I hadn't spoken to him) and then promoting his latest UPC piece to me ("UPC: businesses still on hold despite Judge Huber announcement").

It wasn't an "announcement", but never mind facts. And even Team UPC doubts the self-imposed deadline that he named would be honoured, judging by past experiences.

"...the niche that is Team UPC loved that interview, whereas everyone else just kind of looked at each other, mystified by the decision of a judge to speak directly to Team UPC, dropping words like "bullshit" in the process."For those who aren't aware, Managing IP has long worked with the EPO on UPC advocacy events. It's wrong for judges to speak about ongoing cases with the media; it's even more wrong to speak to a site like Managing IP (because of its relation to the UPC). The way I see it, Managing IP and Wingrove are trying to save face; the niche that is Team UPC loved that interview, whereas everyone else just kind of looked at each other, mystified by the decision of a judge to speak directly to Team UPC, dropping words like "bullshit" in the process.

And for the second time in a week, we might add, Wingrove and colleagues framed the perpetrators of legal bullying (such as Team UPC) as the poor victims. They're been doing this kind of thing for months; if they think that lawyers are the marginalised, depressed, poor people, then they certainly need to screw that head back on. I've dealt with abusive letters from lawyers for at least a decade and these people do not deserve sympathy. They make many people's lives a lot more miserable and usually poor, too (some go bankrupt due to frivolous litigation).
