I'd rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies.

What was the process like for you?
I get $300 for everything that makes it to the attorney and $5k for every patent/trade secretMy assistant program manager at my old job had some. The company gave him like a hundred bucks a time. It's silly. He should have quit and then sold them his idea.
I have no patents but have a lot of experience in early days research and development, so lots of chops and changes and ideas to make an idea work. Fun times.
Never filed anything. I've come up with a bunch of shit in the past. It's mostly geared around working smarter not harder. I feel for the guys who take over from me when I leave, because following the spec is a nightmare. I know what's up with it, but the engineer that wrote it has weaponized autism and gets upset if I correct it.I get $300 for everything that makes it to the attorney and $5k for every patent/trade secret
