Realizing Value from Intellectual Property

Course Number: 
EMT 672
This course examines the valuation, patenting and licensing of early-stage  technology as a means to exploit innovation.  By understanding technology to be a negotiable asset for the firm, we take a fundamentally different approach than venture capital models, which focus on the enterprise, rather than the commercialization of technology itself.  Accordingly, we study the economics and theory of intellectual property; valuation of intangible assets; IP  agreements and protection regimes; negotiations and trading techniques; licensing and litigation strategies.
