    I invented the grey Alien and it was actually blue.

    I invented the grey Alien and it was actually blue!

    Just felt the need to get this irrelevant bit of information of my chest.

    I entered a competition 40 years ago and won with a major scientific research company.

    Ever since my drawing has been plagiarised and marketed without my consent.

    I should be a millionaire now, but no!

    Other shysters have gotten wealthy of my creativity.

    Rant over.

    Anyone else invented something, but never got the full credit for it?

    I invented/developed 2 electronic products:

    - The 19 KHz switching circuit that allows satellite TV receivers to switch between 2 different antennas. It's a small but important part of most satellite TV receivers.
    - A toddler 'wander alert' system where the toddler and parent each wear a monitor/alarm that sounds if the toddler wanders out of range of the parent's unit, (or vice-versa!).

    Too expensive to patent at the time, and anyway the Chinese manufacturers just ignore patents.....

    Anyone who has registered a new novel idea and received a patent number has their name on the patent certificate as an inventor.

    Whether that inventor has received any credit or financial return for their invention is subject to how good a businessman they are.

    A lot of inventors are poor businessman!

    Not true mate.

    152 countries are members of the PCT intellectual property agreement and must adhere to the rules or they will lose their membership.

    China are a member country and are audited annually.

    Here is the list! https://www.google.com/search?q=pct+...hrome&ie=UTF-8
