I don’t patent, particularly work-related stuff. My complaint comes down to a department of people who have consistently taken credit for my work. They get congratulated, and then I hear later how people think their work is top notch when, in reality, it’s the exact opposite.

Yes, it’s petty of me to expect to know where and how my code is being used inside the company, but if someone else is going to claim they designed and built something that I have the actual design sketches for in my Moleskines, then they’d better be ready for what comes next.
