No, you're right.

Here's another attorney--not a patent practitioner--who has similar thoughts about SuperGuide, calling the opinion a "train wreck".  (I agree with his criticisms, 100%.)

As an examiner, I've never once thought about citing SuperGuide in an action, and I can't remember any training we've ever had on SuperGuide.  But I know people who do cite it in actions, and it drives me bonkers.

If it's any consolation I don't think either of the two major blogs (PatentlyO or IPWatchdog) have covered this case.  I learned about it from a CLE presentation given in April by a European attorney from Mathys & Squire, LLP in London.  The presenter might have even been this guy, who apparently represented the patent opponent in oral proceedings in January, or a colleague of his.

I'm a little surprised this never popped up on PatentlyO, but given what IPWatchdog is posting about these days, are you really surprised they wouldn't pick up on it?  It doesn't involve bashing PTAB, how much Google is screwing with the US Patent system, or how bad individual inventors have it these days, so it's not of much use to Gene and his bunch.

The cover letter appeared to me to have a physical date stamp.  I assumed they mailed it in and were hoping for it to arrive on Friday (15th) instead of Wednesday.

Not sure how it works in EU, but these electronic submissions can't be truly anonymous, right?  There must a record of whoever made this submission? IP address at least?  Anyone know?

This is just too crazy... If this happened in US and someone's counsel filed a forged dec like that (even in jest), I imagine you could raise all kinds of hell.  Sanctions, complaints to the bar, I dunno...

whoever submitted it probably used a proxy/vpn located in a jurisdiction outside the EU, preferably a country without a lot of cooperation with the EU.  Good luck to whomever investigating obtaining the VPN log files.  Then again, some VPN doesn't keep logs at all, so all but impossible to trace.

Of course, this assumes the person to have half a brain and hide his/her tracks.

My firm recommended PLI but they wouldn't reimburse me, so I used Patbar and passed in January, first try. I just noticed that their program is on sale. I could've save $300, but oh well. I liked the format, the modules are 12 hours each, they highlight those sections of MPEP that are most likely to be tested. Practice exams are old, but still good practice. Their AIA questions are written by their director since there's an NDA now, but they were so close that I recognized several on the exam. Skip the beginner's lectures if you already have background knowledge, otherwise they're pretty good.

Holy carp.  Thanks, Robert, I haven't seen any of this before.  I need to start paying attention to the blogosphere again.
