Bonum Certa Men Certa

Judging the Judges

Video download link



Summary: Today we shall take a closer look at Carl Josefsson, a person who shall become a figure of interest if he sends EPO courts to the United States in clear violation of the EPC (looking to rubber-stamp an unlawful decision already made before this case even started)

WE will soon publish Part 4 of the series "The EPO's War on Justice and Assault on the Law". The President of the Boards of Appeal, Carl Josefsson, will be in focus.



"The main point of this video is to remind readers that judges are just human beings, no matter how much we glorify and groom them to become some sort of glamourised heroes on a pedestal -- a sentiment not shared by many. They make mistakes sometimes, they're not perfectly immune to corrupting forces/influences, and if there's a longstanding pattern of injustice it's acceptable to seek an explanation."The above video explains why I think judges can sometimes be scrutinised, under exceptional circumstances. Cited are examples like Gilstrap and Rader, whom IAM attempted to propel to the top of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in spite of the epic scandals and blunders. SCOTUS kept overturning his decisions (when he was chief judge at the Federal Circuit) and he flagrantly disregarded basic laws/precedents like 35 U.S.C. ۤ 101/Alice.

The main point of this video is to remind readers that judges are just human beings, no matter how much we glorify and groom them to become some sort of glamourised heroes on a pedestal -- a sentiment not shared by many. They make mistakes sometimes, they're not perfectly immune to corrupting forces/influences, and if there's a longstanding pattern of injustice it's acceptable to seek an explanation. Not just because your rich sponsors ask you to.
