Maximizing IP Value

This is an examination of the methods used to value IP in various settings: IP owned by a business, IP that is the target of acquisition, and IP that has been asserted against a business by a third party IP owner. All of the methods examined will be anchored in a review of applicable regulations and accounting principles. Other topics covered are: securitization and/or monetization of IP, with particular focus on IP holding companies and their benefits, liabilities and challenges; issues of taxation, with particular focus on tax efficient means of optimizing IP value; and deployment of and defense against the adversarial assertion of IP by non-practicing entities (also known as "patent trolls").
