This is about right or wrong.
Can I list my daughter as co-inventor on my inventions? just to improve her chance to get accepted into good university? I know having few patents under her name would help, yet that's cheat and illegal.
Inventorship isn't always black-and-white.
That kind of thinking may keep one from benefitting from the continued support of others who may have had a hand in triggering the idea, especially if that was their original intent.
No single person will strike it rich with an invention. It will take a team of players no matter what.
Inventorship often includes more than just the individual who identifies a design for the first time...
