IP value – techniques, recent court decisions, and the impact of proposed USPTO changes

DESCRIPTION
Intellectual property such as patents constitutes an important asset on the balance sheets of many companies. Understanding the process of valuing those assets is important for many reasons, including as the basis for licensing discussions. Though general techniques for valuing IP are well understood, evolving statutory and case law has greatly impacted the inputs for these techniques. To shed light on the current state of affairs, we will present a hypothetical IP valuation framework and illustrate how the recent changes in the law and USPTO rules can impact the valuation outcome.
