For better or worse, the value of a patent is related to it being successfully monetized. However, the lack of transparency associated with reporting IP transactions undermine the best attempts to identify market norms. Even under the best of circumstances, the value of patents is often shrouded in mystery. This can lead to high profile events being disproportionately weighed by those not intimately familiar with the business side of the patent marketplace.
Further confounding matters is the ever-shifting IP law and policy landscape in the US, which has caused an uptick in patenting activities in Europe and China, as well as looking at foreign markets and foreign patent portfolios. The changing landscape in America has altered business models and patent monetization strategies worldwide.
Whether you are managing an in-house patent portfolio, engaged in M&A deals involving IP assets, or a startup looking to secure funding, this webinar is for you. It is designed to help you optimize the value of your IP portfolio and will highlight patent market trends and the key factors impacting IP valuations.
Our host Gene Quinn (IPWatchdog) will be joined by well regarded IP experts in intellectual property valuation and monetization strategy Efrat Kasznik (Foresight Valuation Group) and Kent Richardson (ROL Group) to discuss:
- Current patent transactions data and startup valuation data
- Are we better off today than a year ago?
- How do you value a portfolio/company that does not have a long track record?
- As technology spreads into new industries how does that impact patent/technology value?
