Intellectual Property Valuation

The concept of valuation of intellectual property and other intangible assets of a company is new as compared to other concepts of intellectual property (IP) law. The value of an IP is a monetary compensation that is expected to be received from licensing of an IP or from sale or exchange of other intangible assets. The intangible assets of a company includes goodwill, trademark, technology, know how, trade secrets etc.

There are mainly three methods of valuation of IP.

Valuation Of Intellectual Property And Intangible Assets

Intellectual Property And Intangible Assets are the largest and most powerful companies; it is the foundation for the market dominance and continuing profitability of leading corporations. Valuation is, essentially, a bringing together of the economic concept of value and the legal concept of property. The presence of an asset is a function of its ability to generate a return and the discount rate applied to that return. The cardinal rule of commercial valuation is: the value of something cannot be stated in the abstract; all that can be stated is the value of a thing in a particular place, at a particular time, in particular circumstances. I adhere to this and the questions ‘to whom?’ and ‘for what purpose?’ must always be asked before a valuation can be carried out.
