|What the well-dressed|
IP valuation expert
wears in court ...
"I wonder if your memory can help me? A few years ago there was a case [probably but not necessarily from England and Wales] where the judge ruled against a party because their expert witness only used one methodology and approach to value an IP asset in question, when the other side followed the spirit of the standard and investigated with the the accepted methodologies".This Kat, who has only the vaguest of memories of such a case, wonders if any of this weblog's learned and knowledgeable readers can provide chapter and verse for this decision, or at least for a decision that lies pretty close to it.
|The line-up (if only ...!)|
I see ICC. At the end of October, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) launches a new IP-related project called the “Positive Innovation Agenda” [great idea, says Merpel, even if the title is a wee bit, er, descriptive ...], the details of which may be highly relevant to our readers. Says the ICC:
The Positive Innovation Agenda project will seek to answer what role intellectual property plays in innovation and technology diffusion, as well as how technology is being developed and disseminated in different sectors and countries today. It will explore these ideas in five papers on:
- IP Management by innovative SMEs
- Innovation and knowledge exchange through global networks and partnerships
- The evolving geography of innovation
- IP in innovation for non-commercial purposes
- Diffusion channels for technology and know-how
The first paper Enhancing IP Management and Appropriation by Innovative SMEs will be launched with the project at the end of October.If you'd like further information, you can watch a short video outlining the project here, read about it online here, or email Project Director Daphne Yong-d'Herve at email@example.com for further information.
