The Real Options Approach to Accurate Licensing Rates

by: Fernando Torres, M.Sc.

Picture the situation. The company has spent millions developing a new technology, the patent has been issued, and the Intellectual Property holding company (IPH) is ready to leverage the innovation by licensing to various subsidiaries. At what rate should the licenses be structured? What about compliance? The transfer pricing specialists are called, and they come back with: “There are no close comparables!” It seems the new technology is truly innovative and conventional methods to determine transfer prices break down. What now?

The Question
When an industry’s royalty rate ranges are wide, say from 3% to 10%, or the industry or relevant markets themselves are nearly impossible to pin down, what additional analysis is required to properly set fairly valued licensing rates?

Anti Globalization Folk

What Are We For?
By Michael Albert
Anti-globalization activists understand that sympathetic and mutually beneficial global ties are good. But we want social and global ties to advance universal equity, solidarity, diversity, and self-management, not to subjugate ever-wider populations to an elite minority. We want to globalize equity not poverty, solidarity not anti-sociality, divers...s and their dynamics. We need domestic and international economic vision that everyone can understand and refine and make their own. We need it to generate hope, to provide inspiration, to reveal what is possible and valuable, and to orient and also democratize our strategies so that they might take us where we desire rather than in circles or even toward something worse than what we now endure.
