As previously reported, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) plans to open a number of satellite patent offices to complement their main offices in Arlington, Virginia. Their first satellite office, located in Detroit, Michigan, is scheduled to open on July 13, 2012. Yesterday, the USPTO announced three additional locations for future satellite offices. Regional offices are now planned for sites in or near Dallas, Texas; Denver, Colorado; and Silicon Valley, California.
