Abstract

Tomlinson and Gilliland "are said between them to have made $250,000 which should properly have gone to the inventor." When TAE was satisfied that the phonograph was a commercial success, he entrusted Gilliland and Tomlinson, as legal adviser, to promote it. The two would get some shares in the new company. The two were able to convince Mr. Lippincott to buy the patent and reported an offer of $500,000. TAE later found out that is was actually $750,000 and that the two had taken the balance.
