Sequester Watch, #12

July 8th, 2013 at 11:46 am

Those who forget sequestration are likely to repeat it.  And as I point out here, European austerians–who clearly are not spending enough time here at OTE–are misguidedly using sequester as an argument for their own cuts.

  1. Louise Auerhahn says:

    Impacts on business: The promised new West Coast satellite patent office, a much-desired goal of Silicon Valley tech companies, is now a casualty of the sequester.

    Excerpts from Silicon Valley Business Journal:

    Silicon Valley’s permanent patent office is dead (for now)

    If you were waiting to find out where Silicon Valley’s permanent patent office was going to land — well, don’t hold your breath.

    The General Services Administration has formally cancelled the lease procurement process for the satellite office’s permanent location, at least for now….

    The news comes a month after we reported exclusively that the GSA was considering putting the project on hold because of the impact of broad federal budget cuts, known as the sequester, on the USPTO.
