Silicon Valley's Patent Office is officially open at City Hall, taking about 35,000 SQFT between three floors. After fierce competition regarding where the office would be located, Downtown San Jose scored a huge win thanks to a lucrative offer from the city.
The Patent Office is currently open to the public. Not only are there several computers that can be used for patent research, but they are offering free courses on topics such as starting companies, trademarks, and the process for registering patents.
The Silicon Valley Business Journal grabbed some photos of the interior a couple weeks ago, and it looks more like a tech office than a government office (minus the court room). Hit the source link for more information and the full photo-set.
