No, the quote was not about antiquated computer facilities at the USPTO.

It was about piracy operations.

On June 30, 2010, Federal authorities seized the domain names of nine websites accused of letting users watch on-demand versions of first-run movies.

The initiative is being run by the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, an interagency task force spearheaded by ICE and including representatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Food and Drug Administration and six others.
