The Unitary Patent reform was sold to make "patents cheaper", but litigation costs of 12.000EUR will keep SMEs at bay. Court fees in Belgium or in France are 600EUR. How can politicians did not notice they gonna kill SMEs already fragile with the COVID crisis? #upc #smes #scam

This corresponds to the pharmaceutical industry’s campaign to beat back congressional efforts to lower prescription drug prices and weaken the protection the industry now enjoys with government-granted patent monopolies jacobinmag.com/2021/09/pharm…

Yep. The Western District of Texas rocket docket has grown . . . but if you ask the job creators and innovators that suffer from NPE patent infringement lawsuits, that's not a good thing. #ExposePatentTrolls #JobsNotLawsuits #Waco #WDTX
US District Judge Alan Albright keynoted #IPOAM21 this morning, saying he had 200 cases when he started 3 yrs ago and that's grown to over 1,200

There’s a little movement when it comes to defendants locked into the Western District of Texas, but even that won’t quell the damage to job creators and innovators when they come up against costly patent troll lawsuits. us1.campaign-archive.com/?u=…

Where the volcano erupted is near the trail "Cabesa de Vaca", which I was riding few years ago. I also stopped at the viewpoint on the road "Mirador Astronomico del Jable" google.com/maps/place/Mirado…

En 1997-98, @eliodirupo avait privatisé les profits en privatisant la bancassurance CGER. En 2021, il socialise les pertes, offrant 1 milliard € aux assureurs via la prise en charge par l'État de la majorité des dommages des inondations. Quel homme : il sait tout faire !

The EU is announcing a not-so-green plan of chip production, state aid and public money to feed private companies "Chip manufacturing, rather than energy consumption or hardware use, accounts for most of the carbon output from electronics devices" hardware.slashdot.org/story/…
