DENVER (AP) Denver's new U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is opening Monday.

It's one of four regional patent offices being opened by the federal government to reduce a backlog and hire patent review experts who aren't willing to move to the main office in Washington, D.C.

University of Colorado law school dean Phil Weiser tells The Denver Post that the office's opening will provide more momentum to Colorado's rising profile in the technology and intellectual property fields.
