When transferring an IPR, how can I value it?

Appraising IPR's before forming a Joint Venture, acquiring a company or entering into a contract is very important as it can help determine the amount of a transaction price or capital contribution.

Below are some questions that are useful in appraising:

  • What is the market for the IPR?
  • What is the IPR to be valued?(define boundaries)
  • Do competitive products exist?
  • Does an alternative exist?
  • Is the protection for the IPR strong?
  • Will the IPR gain or lose value in the future?
  • Can a competitor design a similar product or offer a similar service without the IPR and at what cost?
