*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
Mainstream French MEP and Chair of EU Parliament's Delegation to the Arab Peninsula, Experienced former Minister of Defense, JHA and Foreign Affairs, Michelle Alliot-Marie's (MAM : Center-Right) Lawyer, Francois Greffe, officialy asked Today in a Letter to Emmanuel Macron (Center-Left), former Minister of Economy, to Stop what looks as Plagiarism in his Program's Leaflet, (published Yesterday), of MAM's own Logo and Party denomination, already Published since Last Year (2016), in view of the forthoming Presidential Election of April/May 2017, where they are Both Candidates.

- In particular, with his Letter, Dated 3.3.2017, (a Full Copy of which "Eurofora" received from well-informed sources), Lawyer Greffe formaly gave to Macron a "Notice to Stop Using her (MAM's) own (Electoral) Campaign's Mark ("Signature"), and to Immediately WithDraw and Destroy the inscriminated Documents".

- Indeed, "Mrs Alliot-Marie, ... adopted, Last December (2016), as her Campaign Slogan : "Let's Recover the Spirit of Conquest", and observed, Yesterday, (2 February 2017), that you use "Let's Recover our Spirit of Conquest...", which is even mentioned at the Cover Page of your Program", the Lawyer's Letter notes.

+ "Moreover this also Picks up the Name of her (MAM's) own Party "New France", by inversing its wording", the Lawyer attested, pointing at Macron Program Leaflet Cover's call to "build a New France", (in the Original in French : "nouvelle France" or "France nouvelle", respectively).

++ Macron's Program Leaflet, as distributed to the Press, in Addition uses Both Parts of MAM's Campaign, in Big Capital Letters, at its FrontPage Headlines, for the Introduction to the Full Text which presents his Campaign for the Presidential Elections, (on p. 3), as it's easy to attest, (See relevant Photo).

 - Already, "this was Noted by (French) Medias, which underlined that this Mark "curiously Reminds Michelle Alliot-Marie's Campaign Slogan", etc., Lawyer Greffe's Letter points out.

The move includes initial Articles Published Yesterday f.ex. by mainstream Radio "Europe 1", followed by the Weekly Magazine "Le Point", as well as through several "Twitter" Accounts at the Internet, etc.

- Therefore, "such an Imitation, could not have been misregarded by your Communication Counselors", the Lawyer wrote to Macron.

Macron himsel, had reportedly accused of "Plagiarism" another FrontRunner to the Presidential Elections, former Prime Minister Francois Fillon, (of the Center-Right "Republican" Party), on 1 among many points of their Electoral Programs, Last Month (at the End of February 2017), according to several mainstream Medias, (f.ex., "Liberation", "Closer", "Europe 1", etc).


- Meanwhile, Alliot-Marie had initialy joked, in a "Tweet" adresssed to Macron, by asking him :  -  "Hey, ...are you Joining my Campaign for the Presidental (Election) of 2017, or it's merely about Borrowing the Slogan of my Campaign ?"

Radio "Europe 1" observed that Macron's "sentence's 1st Part curiously Reminds her (MAM's) Campaign Slogan for the Presidential of 2017, (even if Macron didn't necessarily adopt that for his official Slogan formally, as it says), while its "2nd Half evokes, without any doubt, the Name of MAM's (New) Party : "New France"".

But that Media appeared Alone, at least for the moment, to find, Yesterday, that " the Second Option proposed by Michelle Alliot-Marie", (i.e. to "Join" her, in her own Campaign : Comp. Supra), might also sound "Reasonable"...

MAM has also served as Head of France's Governing, main Center-Right Party, formerly "UMP", when it Won the Elections which confirmed Jacques Chirac's Presidency and Parliamentary Majority on 2002, followed by Top Ministerial Jobs at Defense, JHA and Foreign Affairs (including during Nicolas Sarkozy's Presidency, between 2007-2011). She notoriously was, also, one of the 2 Personalities considered by President Chirac for the Job of Prime Minister on 2005, and already Campaigned as a pre-Candidate for the Presidency on 2007 (in UMP's Primaries), before creating her own Party "New France" on 2016 and Campaigning also in the forthcoming Presidential Election of 2017 as an Independent Candidate of Neo-"Gaullist" inspîration.

Macron has worked at Rothschild Bank, was Member and appointed 2nd Secretary of the Socialist Party, served as Socialist President Francois Hollande's Counselor, and afterwards Economy Minister. He currently is one among the FrontRunners, according to Medias' Polls, for the 2017 Presidential Elections, claiming a stance "beyond the Left or the Right", reportedly "Social-Liberal", now.


In it's Headlines, initialy, "Europe 1" had Diplomaticaly said that Macron "Discreetely Pumped" MAM's Campaign Slogan. On the Contrary, a subsequent Article on the Weekly "Le Point" clearly Raised the Question whether "Macron Plagiarized MAM ?"

Plagiarism, (i.e. when someone steals the ideas, expressions, symbols or artwork previously created by another person, and presents them as if they were his own), is generaly considered as Immoral, a Fraud, and is often Sanctioned. But CopyRight infringement is Allways sanctioned, and MAM's Lawyer's Letter (a Specialist on Intellectual Property) uses a carefuly selected language which seems to point also at this direction.


Recently, 2 Important Ministers had been pushed to Resign in Germany, after being Accused for Plagiarism allegedly committed before Many Years, in one case even about 30 Years in the Past. In the Primaries for US Presidential Elections of 1988, former vice-President Biden had reportedly used in a Speech the words of a Brittish Political Leader, without citting him, but the subsequent Controversy Obliged him to Quit his Campaign.

Macron had been notoriously Criticized by many for allegedly Delaying to Reveal a fully-fledged Program until now, so that the above mentioned Document of 30 Pages distributed Yesterday to the Press during a special Press Conference attracted a lot of Public Attention and was widely, even if diversely, commented, just before this apparent Plagiarism Issue suddenly pops up.

Pending all that, Today, MAM's Lawyer kindly but firmly asks Macron to inform him about his "Intentions", regarding the "Notice" that he sent him Now, and suggested that, "according to our (Lawyers') Customs, you could inform us about the Name of your (Legal) Counselor, whom I would Contact".


Greffe's Cabinet, Headquartered in France, has Contact-Offices also in Brussels, Germany (Munich), Italy (Milan), Spain (Vamencia), Portugal (Lisbon), and South Korea, claiming also functional "Partners" throughout Europe and even at the "American Continent". It is Specialized mainly on Intellectural Property, particularly on Advertising, including at the Internet, where its Senior staff uses to contribute in Legal Publications as well as at Paris' higher School on Political Science, and at the International Studies' Centre for Intellectual Property of Strasbourg's University.

The latter had been inaugurated by Michelle Alliot-Marie when she served as JHA Minister, (Comp. relevant MAM's Statements to "Eurofora" then too, f.ex. at : ....).

"Eurofora" has already Published various Statements that gave us, at Differend Occasions on Topical Issues, both Michelle Alliot-Marie and Emmanuel Macron, here and/or elsewhere.

Fillon invites EU to invent "New Horizons" behind Oil crisis

A pioneer Franco-German research project on GeoThermy, near Strasbourg, served as "Symbol" of EU's will to become Independent on Energy by developing innovative Technologies, while imported Oil prices threaten to provoke a World-wide crisis.

It's essential to demonstrate Europe's will to "invent New Horizons", by creating Environment-friendly, Independent and Renewable Energy sources, while price rises continue for Oil, a polluting old ressource with insufficient stocks, stressed French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, anouncing that this will be a focus during the forthcoming French EU Presidency (July - December 2008).

Fillon symbolically injected a 1st KWh produced by GeoThermy into Strasbourg's Electricity grid, during a special gathering of German and French officials at Soultz-under-Forests ("Soultz-sous-Forêts"), using a geothermal innovation which is "the most advanced in the World" :

The innovation uses Strasbourg's underground water richness to capture Heat, by injecting liquid among Rocks 5 km deep, where temperature is 200 c. Thus, it can be activated at any moment and location, even without natural warm water springs : A big advantage compared to old biothermal tools.

Engineers, Scientists and the Industry will have 2 Years to invent practical ways for this innovation to become productive and cost-efficient in real Economy, said Fillon.

115 Millions of Euros invested, 15 Research Labos, 430 Scientific Publications including 34 Doctoral PhD, and a systematic cooperation between French and German Governments and Public Agencies on Research, succeeded to prove that the new method works.

Already able to serve Electricity to a village with 1.500 inhabitants, the pioneer project intends to reach a capacity to serve 20.000 inhabitants before 2015, as part of a larger Plan to make all Renewable Energy Resources (together with Wind, Solar, etc) able to cover more than 23% of all Electricity needs before 2020.

- In fact, "behind the challenge" faced with the current Oil crisis, there "is a New Horizon that we can shape all together", by "creating New Tools for the Future", Fillon launched towards EU Member States.

Meanwhile, we should intensify Energy Savings, simplify Transports, and help the Poorest cope with growing Oil prices, until EU joins a World-wide lead into inventing reliable and sufficient Renewable Energy Sources, he added.

Many, technologic and other Challenges exist, but they can be overcome : F. ex. the new GeoThermic method tested at Shoultz since 1987, had provoked an Earthquake at a nearby site, close to Bale, by injecting big volumes of pressurized Water in underground broken Rocks near a Seismic Faultline in 2003. But the move was rectified later-on, by diminishing the amount and pressure of the water injected in underground rocks, so that no Earthquake is provoked.

More than 1 Billion Euros are invested by France on Scientific and Technologic Research about Sustainable Development until 2012, aiming to take a 10 years advance, there where innovation can become source of Growth, Competitivity and Jobs, which, according to some evaluations could reach more than 220.000 before 2020, Fillon observed.

During the forthcoming French EU Presidency, together with our German friends, we shall do all necessary efforts for Europe's World-wide lead against Global Warming, thanks to Energy tools able to ensure its Independence, Growth, and Citizens' well-being, he concluded.

The "Enhanced Geothermal System" (EGS) stems from pioneer research initiated by teams from France, Germany and Italy, joined also by Swiss, the U.K., and Sweden, even U.S. and Japan, since the 90ies.

In 1996, a European Economic Interest Group (GEIE) was founded, in order to exploit Electricity-produsing Heat from deep underground Rocks, including France's EDF and Germany's PfalzWerke.

In 2002, a Pilot scientific project started to be tested in Soultz-under-Forests, 50 kms north of Strasbourg.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
