  • Excel sheets with 40 valuation methodologies are included with the registration.

  • When to use and how to negotiate the following licensing terms: Royalty rates, Upfront payments and milestones, Granting options to take a license, Royalty stacking, Sublicensing issues, Fields of use, Most favored nation licensing, Managing litigation, Royalty audits.
  • Live sessions feature a Negotiating Battle™, with an interactive simulated licensing negotiation.

Advanced Patent Valuation

  • Tremendous value can be gained (or squandered) through the drafting of patents. The value of a promising technology can be nullified through sloppy claims construction.

  • Numerous judicial rulings and the proliferation of non-practicing entities threatens patent value. On the other hand, the value of patents can surge when sustaining invalidity challenges.
  • Review basic tenets of patent infringement such as: Reasonable royalties/Lost profits/Price erosion/Market size/Reputational damage/Market spoilage/The Georgia-Pacific factors/The 25% rule/Cost of next best alternatives/Running royalties vs. lump-sum payments
