San Jose gets patent office; announcement tomorrow

Sunday, July 1, 2012

Seems strange that Silicon Valley, which generates nearly 1 in 7 U. S. patents, doesn’t have a patent office. But that’s about to change. San Jose is one of three new patent offices, along with Denver and Dallas-Fort Worth, that the Commerce Department is to announce tomorrow. More after the jump.
From the Denver Post:
San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed was so determined to attract the new satellite to Silicon Valley he enthusiastically backed a highly detailed 58-page application that promised the federal agency would have its choice of several Class A buildings in downtown San Jose "at reasonable rates." Reed even tossed out another attractive enhancement: a 20,000-square-foot floor in City Hall.
