Re: Are we sure

That was a joke, strangely Batistelli and Gurry look remarkably similar, which one do you think is the clone?

Precisely who actually has the authority to remove this clown, and for what reason is it not being exercised?

Sounds a bit like a certain ex-FIFA charirman who refused to go.

No, No, No, we need Gurry, he's a really great guy, and he's got uuuuuge plans, big plans, really great plans for the WIPO. And, and, and he's a great environmentalist.

WTF?

What is it with Patent Organisations around the World and their bloody leaders???

The European Patent Office has Battistelli acting like a complete d%&k and needing to be removed by the EU. With the EU naturally failing to do that.

The World Intellectual Property Organisation has Gurry acting like a complete d%&k and needing to be removed by the UN. With the UN naturally failing to do that.

The US Patent Office is broken (although that cant be blamed on the guy at the top this time), and needs for the US Government to sort it out. With the US Government naturally failing to do that.

I'm seeing a pattern here, and I dont like it very much!

non-issue

With the great and fearless Donald leading America to leave the UN and push the UN headquarters out of New York,. their jobs aren't secure anyways.

" but Gurry's reign at WIPO has been peppered by irregularities."

And WW2 was just a minor police action I suppose?
