Never Let Courts Be Controlled by Those Who Ignore Court Rulings (European Patent Office, European Patent Organisation, or EPO)

Video download link | md5sum cb73d03748fcbc6b5bb0843f0317e373 EPO Laughing at the Courts Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 4.0



Summary: Not only is Europe's second-largest institution exceedingly corrupt; when taken to court it refuses to obey rulings against it and at the same time it calls monarchs "role models"; to make matters yet worse, the EPO tries to replace courts that are answerable to the population with kangaroo courts answerable to corrupt EPO management

THE truly absurd EPO is still trying to replace patent courts with a bunch of kangaroo courts while shamelessly ignoring the rulings (against EPO) regarding unlawful actions from Benoît Battistelli. Battistelli's friend António Campinos not only refuses to execute the latest judgement; he also keeps lying about it!



That the EPO is run by a bunch of criminals is hardly news, but the following letter is new:

European Patent Office | 80298 MUNICH | GERMANY

Mr António Campinos President of the EPO

By email

OPEN LETTER

Reference: sc22117cl Date: 06.09.2022

Execution of ILOAT Judgment No. 4551 (mass emails)

Dear Mr President,

In a letter of 29 July 2022, the CSC demanded the immediate execution of Judgment No. 4551 issued on 6 July 2022 and reinstating the former rules on mass emails in force prior to 31 May 2013.

To this day, this letter remains unanswered and Staff Committees and their members still cannot send an email to more than 50 addresses.

We note that mailing lists for sending mass emails to more than 50 staff members, e.g. DDL-ALL-STAFF(-XX), already exist in the EPO standard email system. Such mailing lists can be easily selected from the available address book and inserted into the recipient field. However, when the sender is a Staff Committee or one of its members, sending of the email is technically blocked. The same applies upon inserting more than 50 individual addresses as recipient from the available address book.

The above confirms that the EPO has not executed Judgment No. 4551 two months after the ruling of the Tribunal.

As already explained in the letter of 29 July 2022, we see no legal or technical requirements preventing the EPO from granting authorisation to Staff Committees and their members to use the EPO mailing lists. In fact, granting authorisation is technically a matter of seconds for the EPO internal IT services (BIT) and could have been easily done already immediately after the Judgment was issued.

Therefore, we repeat the demand for the immediate execution of Judgment No. 4551 and no later than 30 September 2022.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Czogalla Chairman LSC Berlin

Jutta Haußer Deputy Chairwoman LSC Vienna

Michael Kemény Chairman LSC Munich

Jorge Raposo Chairman LSC The Hague

Alain Dumont Chairman Central Staff Committee


I did a video about the prior letter along with a bunch of memes about this non-presidential behaviour from Campinos, who insisted (in his own words): "I am the f***ing president" (how do people who talk like this manage to make it into positions of great power???)

Corruption prevails and thrives at today's EPO while politicians simply look the other way. As noted in the video above, the EPO is attempting to paint itself as a lover or art, a sympathetic lover of life (or a monarch, which it calls "a public service role model"). At the same time the EPO says "Unitary Patent & UPC" (illegal & unconstitutional) "Coming this winter", which is a lie. We recently mentioned back room deal with monarchs. The EPO's is Europe's pinnacle of corruption, intended to benefit and protect the rich (and their lawyers).
