Two New Valuation Seminars
There are two interesting valuation seminars coming up. The first is by the American Intellectual Property Law Association and is free. It is tomorrow, Wednesday, August 22, 2017 and remote participation is possible. The event is titled, “Assessing the Value of Intellectual Property in Rapidly Changing Markets and Law.” Here is a summary of the event:
Rapidly changing markets and products affect the value of intellectual property. Traditional methods of valuation are highly challenged, as comparable transactions, costs to develop "equivalent" IP and measuring income streams are all compromised by abbreviated time lines. So, too, innovation at an increasing pace in certain sectors and rapidly changing intellectual property law (Alice, PTAB developments) heavily impact valuation approaches and outcomes. Listen to our panel discuss these intriguing challenges.
The Speakers: Philip W. Kline of 284 Partners, LLC; Brian Scarpelli of ACT | The App Association; and David Stein of Cooper Legal Group, LLC
