Definition of intangibles

The OECD has released a discussion draft clarifying issues specific to intangibles involving multinational enterprises after 18 months since initiating the project in late 2010. The OECD issued the interim draft after consulting with the business community, in order to invite public comment from all stakeholders involved. The discussion draft was prepared by OECD Working Party No. 6 and contains proposed revisions to Chapter VI of the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines and to the corresponding illustrative examples that appear in the Annex to Chapter VI. The overarching goal of…

Valuating organizational intellectual property

Fascinating interview with law professor Chris Sprigman on the excellent Surprisingly Free podcast, about his forthcoming book, The Knockoff Economy: How Imitation Sparks Innovation. Sprigman’s book sounds great, although he does seem (from indications in the interview) to accept (a) the utilitarian model for evaluating law, and (b) the idea that IP law makes sense in some fields, such as pharmaceuticals. For a criticism of the utilitarian approach, see the section “Utilitarian Defenses of IP” in my Against Intellectual Property ; for the latter, see chapter 9 of Boldrin and…

For you as a consumer in the billion-dollar skin care industry, lack of information about products is costly, and you have to bridge the gap between. Without accurate information, you are throwing your money away, because you are completely at the mercy of advertisers and marketers. Knowing more specific information about your skin needs, such as your true skin type, you can take control of your skin. n 2001, the average American owned about five hundred dollars worth of cosmetic products, and this amount has surely risen dramatically as more and more expensive product lines…

HTC has filed two counterclaims against Apple in the Southern District of Florida this week, using two patents that were purchased from HP as its weapon against the Cupertino company.

The second patent covers a “method and system for central management of a computer network, ” which…

Price determination of organizational learning

If you are planning on acquiring a loan in the near future, you should learn more about the factors that can affect mortgage rates and the common fees that are associated with mortgages. By learning more about these factors, you will be able to identify the lenders and methods you can use to get the lowest possible rates on your loans. One of the most important factors that can affect the amount of money you must pay for a loan is your credit score. Your credit score plays a central role in determining the fees and interest rates you must pay in order to obtain a loan, because…

What is intangibles?

Kyle Wellwood lazily skating back to the bench to celebrate a goal. No hustle. I may not agree with the rationale, but intangibles matter, especially when you’re signing a free agent contract. We have yet to cover this on the Backhand Shelf, but Kyle Wellwood signed a one-year contract worth $1.6M with Winnipeg on Friday just before closing time and every hockey writer had checked out for the day. It’s a weird contract for a few reasons, the first of which is that Kevin Cheveldayoff got a good deal for a player, and the second is that Wellwood apparently had no leverage after…

Personal intellectual property evaluation

In earlier times, the concept of property meant something tangible. Man used to be in possession of property and property became the source of wealth and status in the society for him. As time went by, property created by the scope of one’s intellect became what is known as Intellectual Property Right. The problem with Intellectual Property was that it was intangible in nature. Property has always been a symbol of power and strength for every individual and that is why every individual tries to maximize his property. A human being is the sole proprietor of his brains and even…

How to buy secret formula?

It is true that world champion Viswanathan Anand creates the wave from which people read more news and listen to media coverage on chess and come into chess. These people who come into chess stay until their children select a career away from chess like Engineering or Medicine after another dozen years. The Indian Under-7 Nationals which started at Puducherry (formerly known as Pondicherry, a south Indian state with French culture) on July 15 displays India‘s longstanding success in the game. There are a total of 209 players and an equal number of parents or grandparents…

Intangibles acquitions

INTC missed the Q2 topline ($13.5 billion vs Exp. of $13.54 billion), even as it met bottom-line estimates of $0.54, but it is the company's forecast for 2012 that has caught traders off guard, because the technology company is merely the latest one to revise its outlook for the year lower. To wit: "Revenue up between 3 percent and 5 percent year over year, down from the prior expectation for high single-digit growth." From the Press release: Business Outlook Q3 2012 (GAAP, unless otherwise stated) Revenue: $14.3 billion, plus or minus $500 million.;…

Buying organizational resources

It seems that every conference I ever went to on intelligence, foresight or research had a track about “how to get executive buy-in” or “how to get a seat at the table” or “winning over the C-suite.” Today, I saw an article on this topic for the 95, th time, and it occurred to me to finally crystalize my point of view on this. Stop trying to win over the C-suite, you are wasting your time. And definitely stop give classes, webinars, and conference tracks on how to do so. Here’s why. If we are going to generalize about executives as if they are all interchangeable – and lord…

Valuing Trademarks When Diamond Foods bought Kettle Foods, nearly 40 percent of its purchase price of $616M was paid for “brand intangibles.” How are such valuations determined and what are the drivers?

Diamond paid approximately $616 million for Kettle Foods and $235 million, or nearly 40%, of the purchase price was allocated to “brand intangibles”. 1.
