Description
This book is the outcome of a self posed question viz.
"if me or my company has a patent, what will be its worth".
Great amount of both primary and secondary research did not yield any satisfying outcomes. This was perhaps because of the mind-set tuned to look for something quantitative, perhaps a mathematical formulation which when solved would yield a value representing the worth of patent.
More fortuitous results came when the search was made not for any quantitative mechanism for valuing a patent but searching for methods which catered to management of ecosystem of companies or inventors having patents. For a patent while being classified as an asset is differentiable from other class of assets such as bullion or real estate which have the intrinsic worth on stand alone basis, It is the invention underlying the patent which becomes worthy only when it is put in an operating and market ecosystem. It is the multiple aspects of the ecosystem such as available alternatives, invention revenue generation capacity, competitive environment, linked patents or licenses required for operating the invention etc. all of which are quintessentially unpredictable but translate a patent valuation exercise from quantitative domain to a probabilistic domain where the values fall in the probabilistic spectrum cogent upon market forces.
Another aspect which came through the exercise was the strong interchangeability between patent valuation and royalty determination. The inventor or companies will always be very interested in determining the value of their patents in absolute monetary terms. But it is an empirical established fact that only very small number of patents actually turn out to be cash cows or provide exceptional returns. Such valuation will be of much interest perhaps when sale of patent or company is being considered. But generally the inventor or company in regular course of business is more concerned with the earning capacity i.e royalty of the patent which they hold or are interested to license/ assign. Hence the patent valuation exercise in a way quantifies itself into royalty valuation around which the licensor (patent holder) and licensees could engage commercially.
