I was browsing patents filed by an old employer and noticed that some tech I worked on has been patented. While I was there, I was told this would be a trade secret and wouldn't be patented.
The patent was submitted in the US and EU and is still pending in both.
I am wondering if there is anything I can do at this point as I would like to have my name on the patent as I am pretty proud of the technology and it would be good for my CV. My employment contract said there are no royalties to be paid and that I have to assign the patent to the company so there would be no money involved, it's more about having the patent as part of my CV.
I am not sure if I have any hard evidence of my contribution that isn't in the form of emails and documents in the companies possession as I wasn't allowed to take anything with me when I left.
So, is there anything I can do at this point?
