European Patent Office's document churning snatches Germany's attention: 'We are concerned about quality'

Re: Property is Theft...

There were three staff reps that spoke at the closed meeting, representing three different parts of the organization.

Since they are representatives and were not speaking in a personal capacity, and given the EPO's clear intimidation and persecution of staff that have criticized management, I didn't think it appropriate to name them. Nor do I now.

The German government representative was Cornelia Rudloff-Schaffer. You can see the full list of govt reps here: https://www.epo.org/about-us/governance/administrative-council/representatives.html?update=epoorg#de

I didn't "use the argument" about the risk of patent quality - I explained why concerns over patent quality are so significant.

If you want to know about the EPO and ILO and ECHR, here are some links to previous articles:
