My coworkers and I filed a patent a few months ago and I found this in my inbox today:

Congratulations on the filing of a
U.S. patent application, as identified above.  Intellectual property is an important and valuable asset in today’s world.  “Name of my Company” recognizes the value of new ideas generated by its employees in the daily performance of their jobs, and is dedicated to the appropriate protection of intellectual property.
  Pursuant to the “Name of my Company” Invention Award Program, and to show our appreciation for your persistence and hard work as reflected in this patent application, each of you will find included in your next available check a cash award of $1250.00 (less taxes) for your work on your invention. It will likely be two or more years before this application matures into an issued
U.S. patent.  In the interim, we look forward to your assistance in working with the patent attorney assigned to this case to successfully obtain a patent on this important invention.

This will be going into the Asia Trek fund (which turn out to be more expensive than I thought)


Entry filed under: General.
