Top Inventor Silicon Valley to Get Own U.S. Patent Office

Apple Inc., Google Inc. and Intel Corp. soon won’t have to travel across the U.S. to get patent protection on their latest inventions.

Silicon Valley, Dallas and Denver have been selected as the new homes for regional patent offices as part of an effort to cut down on a backlog of applications awaiting review, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office said today.
