As one follow up action to the report Banking on IP published in late 2013, the Intellectual Property Office commissioned Golant Media Ventures to present an initial review of:
- key characteristics of markets in IP which could support efficient trading
- main information needs to give potential and actual traders confidence to monetise assets, through sale or licensing
The main deliverables from the report are a mapping of existing frameworks and systems for identifying and valuing intangible assets; and the promotion of a series of templates for standardising the information requirements relating to the operation, ownership, and financial charges over intangible assets. This report includes a wide consultation with stakeholders, and provides a starting point for improving markets for intangible asset markets.
