  1. Are there many such patents that would fall under Japanese
    jurisdiction? Hmm.. so if a British engineer develops an innovation
    and it is granted a Japanese patent, can he contest the piddling bonus
    he gets from his American employer in a Tokyo courtroom?

    However, given how pro-corporation the Japanese court system* is, I
    might question the interpretation of the "appropriate compensation".
    After all, for the poor employer who is paying the salaries of scores
    of boffins and providing them with loads of expensive equipment to
    play with, just so they can develop innovations in the market area of
    the company, perhaps a one month bonus might seem more appropriate
    than 10% of gross profit over 17 years.

    * Chisso Chemical in Minamata stretched out negotiations and court
    battles with the victims of their mercury dumping out over 40 years..
    many, of course, were long dead by then.

    Best regards,
