First they tell us that intellectual property is our most unexploited resource, and we should make every effort to generate patents on every project we work on. And send out numerous memos telling that we’re not doing enough to get inventions into “Invention Tracker”. And now I find out that they’ve downsized the patent lawyers so there is only one or two people working on taking the stuff out of “Invention Tracker” and turning it into patents.
Smart move, guys. That will show those Japanese who’s the boss.
