« Panel Discussion on AMP v. USPTO This Thursday | Main | VentureSource Reports 35% Increase in 1Q Venture Funding »

The PTO is FEE based and does NOT require funding from government coffers. So, I do not see why all these programs are being cut due to government spending cuts. In fact, the federal government takes back a large percentage of the fees obtained by the PTO. So, simply let the PTO keep all their generated fees and these programs will continue and grow.

I agree with Bruce. I was looking forward for an office in Detroit and this type of nonsense is no different than raiding SS for other activities. Truly a shamful act by the ethical sense of the word.
