Do you what has gotten Silicon Valley’s high-tech firms fighting mad?
It might surprise you.
It has nothing to do directly with technology.
Check out this article called “Silicon Valley patent office shelved” and discover why people in this area are bothered by this decision…
“SAN JOSE, CALIF. — Silicon Valley’s high-tech firms are fighting what they consider a deeply personal federal cut this summer that shelves a planned patent office in this innovation-fueled region.
“While most of the country is feeling some pinch from the automatic budget cuts known as sequestration, tech leaders say this one is unique and unfair, because the Commerce Department’s promised satellite patent offices were never going to be funded by taxpayers. Instead, they’re supported by the $2.8 billion in annual patent fees collected from inventors, entrepreneurs and companies.”
