Google Tried to Patent My Work After a Job Interview
I looked up the patent application and luckily, this time the patent application was still being reviewed by the patent examiner.  It had not issued! The provisional was filed August 29, 2014, months after my first interview and visit back in March 2014.  Two of the inventors listed were the same people who had interviewed me. 


This is frankly appalling behaviour from Google -- total abuse of the patent system. If Joi Ito hadn't been around to mediate this patent probably would have issued and this researcher's life's work stolen from her through IP dirty tricks.
