Patent Office telecommuting possible because of electronic automation that helps writers, webmasters, inventors too


An article in the Washington Post by Lisa Rein on Sept. 11, Metro section, “At patent office, phoning it in proves productive”, discussing telecommuting by patent and trademark workers from the Alexandria VA office, link here

The story is actually important for people who need to check patents and trademark names (and particularly domain names) online, because it shows that much more effort has been made to make all the electronic records on the Web current.

I can remember a visit to the office in 2000 to check on my own domain names “manually” and there was no way to even begin.
