Oxfirst Free Webinar: Determining the Value of a Patent

Our friend at Oxfirst, Roya Ghafele, has let us know about another timely webinar sponsored by Oxfirst.  Dr. Ednaldo Silva, Founder and Managing Director of RoyaltyStat, and Dr. Roya Ghafele, Director of OxFirst will present “Determining the Value of a Patent”.  The talk will cover:

Intangible assets represent a major share of today’s businesses. The patents associated with those assets are the legal underpinning in that innovation. Yet, despite their fundamental importance, there is a lack of understanding of the economic worth of a patent. This talk seeks to overcome this gap, by discussing the when, if, how, what and why of patent valuation.  (IP Valuation Expert Group, European Commission, 2014)

Dr. Silva’s biography states: “Dr. Silva is an economist with over 20 years of experience in transfer pricing and the valuation of intangibles. Dr. Silva was the first IRS Office of Chief Counsel Sr. Economic Adviser, serving as a drafting member of the U.S. (1994) transfer pricing regulations and first economist in the APA Program. He has a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.”
