About the Author
My name is Archer Tope - this is a pseudonym or Nom de Plume if you prefer. The reason for the use of this subterfuge is to protect my true identity while I continue to work in the innovation and intellectual property field. The tips and tricks highlighted in this book can make existing clients nervous or they might even be used against me in negotiations or litigations. Please forgive me for not revealing my true identity.
I have been involved in or around innovation for at least 20 years. I have over 70 patents to my name. Many of my patents have been sold or used to develop products and companies which were sold to others. One of my first inventions I developed and rolled out was worth an estimated $100M. I have been involved with startups which have had public exits, got caught in stock market crashes, acted as an expert witness in a patent litigation, sold patent portfolios, helped structure new innovation programs, negotiated innumerable contracts, run development teams, and sued a Fortune 50 company for patent infringement. My view of the innovation landscape may be broad, however, I have also dealt in the details.
While explaining how to view intellectual property, set up an innovation group, or manage a development team, I often hear "you should write a book." I have stayed away from recording my thoughts about innovations up to now to avoid the negative ramifications.
