Cameron Gough

Innovation is at the heart of dream big, and one way Comcast fosters innovation is by recognizing the many amazing Comcast inventors whose contributions help transform the customer experience. Capturing and protecting our inventions as patents is an important initiative for Comcast, that’s why the Comcast Inventor Recognition Program awards bonuses to employee inventors when their utility patent application is filed at the US Patent and Trademark office and when it is granted. “…in the competitive world, if we invest, and we innovate, and we deliver the consumer experience, nobody has a better position than Comcast…" Brian Roberts, Comcast Live - March 2009 Could my idea be patentable? Inventions can arise from any area within Comcast. The Intellectual Property legal and business teams review potentially patentable ideas not only from engineers working on cutting edge products and services, but from a variety of creative sources. Every Comcaster has the potential to dream big!
