"Unless I have links." You can google "aaron hightower patent." I have multiple patents with multiple companies as sole inventor sir.

Your comments here are as dorky as they come, sir.

I am entertained, and I thank you for them, sir.


Give you credit for filing any kind of patent. However, many of them were applications that haven't been granted. That's not really your fault.
The skill game never had a patent granted. I never said you didn't try to file a patent.
Just that you don't own a complete patent outright from scratch. Almost no one does.

No patents have matched your query

Here's where to go to find your patents. As I said, you have fliers or addendums to existing patents that were still in force or ran out. You don't own any original patents that I can clearly identify. Nothing wrong in making improvements or changing something from the past though. But claims of patent ownership can be very confusing.

Everybody owns a piece of that patent before you in some way or another.

Thanks for all the details, Ahigh. You've
made your position crystal clear.

If you need further help with patents, I invite you to do a Google search and I believe you can find some legal websites. I am not a lawyer, I don't enjoy working with lawyers. I come up with ideas, some of them I implement, and I get paid, sir. That is and has been a significant component of my professional role for quite some time.

I don't expect someone who claims that an image was substituted for the game understand this, sir. But I do wish you the best fortune, sir.

Sorry ahigh. This has been a problem with you from the beginning. You not being capable of a civil defense and can only manage cheap narcissistic retorts AND the obvious fact that you worked with a known criminal not once but twice tells me everything I need to know.

I'll follow the courts and lawyers you'll be forced to work with when each filing is published. I don't need to defend myself or engage in your personal problems on a gambling website. You shouldn't project yourself publicly as well. I tried to warn you.
It's not a wise thing to do when everyone else you worked with is being litigated against. Seriously dude, it's not a game.

Good day SIR!

Invent for a Company

Companies that do a lot of research and development usually have rules in place that let them own the inventions their employees create while on the job. This is called "work for hire." To encourage their employees to invent things, these companies offer bonuses and other rewards.

The biggest advantage to inventing for a company is that the company does all the investing, patenting, and marketing for you. The inventor faces no risks aside from the ones that always come with a full-time job. You don't have to spend your own money and you don't have to worry that no one will use your invention. In exchange, you get less money this way than you would from any other way.


Sorry last thing...Are you thinking you own a invention if you prescribe to this 'instruction'? Who wrote this anyways.
You work for a company, and there's processes and inventing involved, the employee signs an iron clad release of all his intellectual property created while in employ of said employer. That means you NEVER OWN YOUR INVENTION if the normal releases are signed. That company does. Completely. Forever.
Who ever wrote that paragraph is way wrong..."you don't have to worry that no one will use your invention?"
You sign off on everything. It's not your invention. You may not even be able to have your name on it.
If you manage to work a deal for more control of your IP, then maybe there's a chance. But not the way that guy who wrote that paragraph the way he did.
I hope that's not what you were meaning.
But hey, it's your world.

But GL and good day, Sir!

I know 3 people who got patents. One
worked for someone else and the patent
made his company a huge amount of
money, of which he got nothing.

The other 2 got their own patents, it
cost them an obscene amount of money,
and neither made a dime from them.
They both later said they never should
have listened to their lawyers. In fact,
patent attorney's are the only ones
who make guaranteed profit from patents.

I spent the last twenty-some years of my career working for an employer for whom we developed quite a bit of new technology. Most of the efforts were paid for through government contracts, some from private corporations. I worked with quite a few project teams involving a variety of other professionals. For the most part, we were giving away the technology solutions that we found to assist companies that needed it -- that's why the government was sponsoring the work. They also paid us to help companies learn how to use the technology effectively. Most of the topic areas related to industrial energy conservation, productivity improvement, and pollution prevention. It is an example of the government spending taxpayer money to support the general economy and public welfare, with public benefits far exceeding the cost of the contracts they fund.

We were giving the knowledge away so quickly that we generally didn't bother with formal records of invention, and certainly not the full patent process. We mostly just filed periodic and final reports of the projects.

I only have two patents listing me as inventor. I was the project director for the research leading to those patents, and I included all of the major contributors on my team as inventors on the applications. Our employer paid all of the expenses of the patent process and is responsible for costs of all subsequent marketing efforts. The employer also derives all of the licensing revenue -- the team members worked on salary.

I think this kind of arrangement is quite common.
