While overall bankruptcies filed by businesses have declined substantially since 2009, the impact of past bankruptcy-related sales and licensing of intellectual property (IP) is still being felt by the targets of patent assertion entities. Determining the value of IP licenses can be complicated due to how license agreements are treated during bankruptcy. In a new article for Financial Valuation and Litigation, NERA Vice President Kristopher Boushie examines the complexity of IP valuation in the context of a bankruptcy proceeding. This article first appeared in the December 2015/January 2016 issue of Financial Valuation and Litigation Expert, published by Valuation Products and Services.
