I worked for a company in a senior tech leadership role and was responsible for their patent applications. I worked with patent attorney to write 3 applications, one of which I was a named inventor on.
I left the company a couple of years ago, somewhat acrimoniously, and before the final applications were submitted, but after the initial registration. I have subsequently discovered that the patent that I was named inventor on has been granted, but the inventor names have been changed to the CEO's partner, an employee in the company, and I have been removed along with others who have also left.
What is the position for the inventorship? It seems wrong that this is allowed, although I understand I have no claim on the patent as inventor because the assignee was, and still is, the company.
