This Tentative List of UPC Judges (Industry as 'Judges') Will Make the Unitary Patent Explode Before Launch

Summary: The Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court are basically scams; they're being rebranded and falsely marketed by a malicious lobby looking to raid Europe through "judges" who are basically working for this lobby

THE Unified Patent Court (UPC) lobby is starting to show its true face, reaffirming everything that UPC critics have cautioned about for over a decade. We have covered this before, but the above video shows an article from JUVE, which has its own conflict of interest (it works for the UPC lobby and gets paid by the UPC lobby).



This is very closely connected to EPO corruption because the same people are being spotted doing both things. Benoît Battistelli has been declaring that the UPC would start "next year" since 2015 (almost 8 years ago) and António Campinos has said similar things since he was parachuted into the EPO to continue this demolition work of his friend, Battistelli, who obliterated the Rule of Law and sought to illegally grant European software patents. All he needed was a kangaroo court to approve such patents later on.

"We've been speaking to elected European politicians about this and will bring this to the attention of many more."A reader has warned us about a "UPC captured by corporations," dubbing the latest scheme: "Judge in the morning, MegaCorp in the afternoon..."

Corruption at full swing for sure. Will this ever commence? Probably not. People will fight back and maybe more nations will formally express opposition. Some have already condemned this illegal scheme.

"Nokia as UPC judge," a reader told us. Here is the full list:

This does not look like a list of judges but a list of companies. This is the "banana republic" they want to introduce...

"Nokia, Airbus, Orange technical judges," as our reader put it. "It would be fun to make some UPC sponsored/corrupted by all those companies who have their staff as part-time technical judges. A proper kangaroo court..."

The way we see it, the publication of the list (as shown above) was a giant own goal. We've been speaking to elected European politicians about this and will bring this to the attention of many more. This charade won't end well. All it can do is discredit the EU, but the litigation profiteers value money, not Unity or a European "union" of any kind.
