A proper evaluation of intellectual property is essential in virtually all types of business transactions as well as in ongoing IP asset management.

This course provides practical tips and approaches to help you identify whether you and/or your organization should conduct an intellectual property audit or due diligence, and educates you on how to value the intellectual property rights that you have identified. At the end of this course you should be able to:

+ Identify the reasons why intellectual property audits and due diligence are conducted. 

+ Describe the regulatory and accounting rules that pertain to intellectual property audits.  

+ Recognize how intellectual property audits and due diligence pertain to intellectual property valuation.
