Patent Award Program

Patent reward systems are put in place by many companies to give employees an incentive to disclose their inventions and go through the patent process.

A typical program may pay anywhere from nothing to $500 for merely submitting an invention disclosure, up to $1000 when an invention is submitted to the Patent Office as a patent application, and anywhere from $1000 to $5000 when the patent issues.

The Adobe patent team is forming patent award committees to award patents and provides recognition and rewards for the patents and inventions that Adobe employees produce.
