The company I work for is filing a software patent (US and Canada) based on the software that I have created for them. The company is asking me to sign an "Assignment of Invention" so that they own exclusive rights to the patent. I believe that this is fine given the fact that I created the software on company time, however I want to be reassured that the patent will be used in "good faith" (they won't become a patent troll) or they won't sue competition just because they want to create a monopoly in the market.
To give some background: we're a SASS startup and our CEO/(potential) investors believe that having a patent means we're more likable for investments.
Is what I'm looking for reasonable?
