Today, the USPTO announced the Silicon Valley satellite office will be permanently housed in the San Jose City Hall building at 200 East Santa Clara Street. The office is expected to open in late 2014.
The City of San Jose, California state assembly’s speaker’s office, plus a California congressional delegation decided to do that rare thing in politics today work together for the public's benefit. I was also surprised to read that the City of San Jose offered this space rent free for two years.
