Since the landmark 1970 Georgia-Pacific Corp. v. United States Plywood Corp. case, in which the U.S. District Court (S.D.N.Y.) pulled together 15 concise factors from prior case law for establishing reasonable royalty rates, the courts have been asking experts to support their royalty rate damages estimates with sufficient economic and empirical data. To help solve what could otherwise be a tedious and expensive assignment, BVR is proud to partner with ktMINE, the most comprehensive source of hard-to-find royalty rate data available anywhere.
ktMINE is an interactive intellectual property database that provides direct access to royalty rates, the source licensing agreements, and detailed agreement summaries found from public sources, including the Securities Exchange Commission, foreign security filings, and the Web. You’ll find royalty agreements in ktMINE that you won’t find anywhere else–and they all include a link to their original source documents. Through a 30+ checkpoint process, ktMINE ensures that all of the key licensing terms are accurately captured and categorized, which uncovers the most relevant IP agreements. With precise search functionality, including the ability to search by agreement type, industry, and other criteria, ktMINE lets the user quickly find and analyze market comparables from over 13,000 public royalty rate, licensing, and lump sum agreements. While ktMINE currently contains a robust 18,000 “real world” royalty rate examples, 200+ new agreements are added to the database every month.
