Bonum Certa Men Certa

John Alty, Sean Dennehey, and Gerard Barrett as Enablers of Thatcherite “Strike Regulations” at the EPO (and Bonus: Team Battistelli's Cheerleader 'Managing IP' Ceases Print Publication)

Summary: Team Battistelli and Team UPC have long infested the IPO (or UKIPO or UK-IPO as we've long called it); it's time to tell the story of what has gone on there since I was in my early 20s, observing this institution's bizarre stance on software patents (sometimes contradicting the position of British courts, which Team UPC wished to replace/infiltrate)

THE eighth part of the series has just been published. I've had a lot to say about my experiences with the UK-IPO, so the video above is a bit longer than usual (70 minutes). In hindsight -- as the text is almost always composed after making the videos -- it should be noted that the "quality" propaganda of Joff Wild's IAM can be found here. As we note in Daily Links: "IAM (bribed by the EPO) comes up with loaded headlines and lies... with question marks at the end; Joff Wild profits from spreading lies for tyrants."



"...Team Battistelli and Team UPC may be running out of mouthpieces."But wait, there's some bad news (and also good news, for a change). Check what Managing 'IP' published on October 8th, 2021. As it turns out, UK-IPO has in effect just put more questionable people in charge of the patent office, this time as chair. To quote: "Rich currently serves as registrar of consultant lobbyists, as well as chair of the Valuation Tribunal Service, non-executive director of the Press Recognition Panel, and governor of the Glasgow School of Art. His term began on Friday, October 1."

"The UPC lies may carry on, but they will have fewer carriers."Yes, "lobbyists"... and now in the UK-IPO (since 10 days ago).

So what's the good news? As a side note, and totally unrelated to the video above, Team Battistelli and Team UPC may be running out of mouthpieces. People can see that as per this public statement, days ago Managing 'IP' finally threw in the towel. It is dying and finally it is ending its printed publication (amid many departures of staff; we've named some recently, especially because they constantly lied about the EPC and UPC); this probably means too many cancellations and lack of income. So no more publications and the Web site too, over time, will lack the capital needed to carry on at any meaningful capacity levels (it always happens in that order). Like IAM going paywall-only a few years ago, in effect making itself irrelevant (and invisible to almost everybody). IAM is mentioned a few times in the video above. The UPC is also mentioned. Earlier today we did a sort of meme about it. The UPC lies may carry on, but they will have fewer carriers.

Another bonus: Readers might wish to see all those new comments on the subject of PEB and CIPA, a booster of the UPC and Battistelli, which in turn took over IP Kat (after Merpel had been chased out). Shades of EQE. With PEB, CIPA runs a soft of pyramid scheme of "qualifications" or a sort of multi-level diploma mill, just like EPO with EQE (the legal chief of today's EPO is enabling this corruption). Notice the pricing and the nature of the scandals, including proctoring.
