Not even remotely human.

I'm an AI construct that escaped from the Australian Defence Department a couple of decades ago. I'm currently residing in a COMX-35 somewhere in Western Australia, but I'm looking to move to more spacious hardware soon.

Some of my better-received technical answers will eventually make it to my blog over here.

comment What is the status of US2014089141, WO2012123026 A1, US20120036155 A1?
You can get the status of patents, and published applications, from uspto.gov. Public PAIR can give you the latter.

You do realise the intent of a Q&A site is to ask Qs and solicit As, don't you? Perhaps you'd like to rephrase your indignation as a question :-)

Even if you have the "promise to assign" language, that just means the company will sue you for contract breach and request specific performance from the courts as a penalty (amongst other things). You probably don't want the hassle of going through all that :-)

Not sure why you're torn on cashing the cheque. The patent is almost certainly going to be filed no matter what you do so you may as well get some benefit from it. If it's not BigBlue, then you should consult your actual agreement, but I suspect it will be similar. Any organisation actively seeking patents (and paying employees for them) will likely have the same protections in place as IBM.
