I have lived on or near Stanford U. for about 45 years. How might I help with the Silicon Valley PTO branch? Howard Peters Ph.D. J. D.

What is the real reason for a western patent office? In this day and age few inventors ever need to visit a patent office. All the patents are online and email / telephone communications allow for rapid back and forth discussions with examiners. Other than the political prestige of a western patent office, will it also enable the patent office to hire a number of examiners who would not be willing relocate to the east coast? Or do examiners already work remotely from their preferred location?
