comment How to torpedo a bad patent my former large employer is filing?
Step one: don't cash the check. That would show tacit or implicit cooperation.

comment How do we check if a patent already exists for our idea?
There's various patent search resources out there that you can use to search for key terms specific to your idea which should bring up similar patents and applications. This should probably be your first step -- finding existing (similar) patents, reading them through, and trying to figure out if someone already holds the rights to your idea.

comment Can a system for wirelessly charging a mouse battery be patented?
Many schools in the US will contest their students patents if they can prove that you used school resources/computers/networks/whatever in inventing your device. I don't know if it's the same for Canadian schools. FYI.
