  • ...260 million yen ($2.34 million) ... and paid him tens of thousands yen annually in remuneration...

    So they paid him hundreds of dollars annually? According to the article, they only paid him $2,000 in two years.

    Of course, the article is missing details such as what he did, what his position was, and what the patent is.
