Essential techniques and considerations for valuing entertainment IP

BVWireIssue #81-1
June 3, 2009

New technologies are eroding old economies of scale in entertainment, thereby increasing potential valuation engagements. In the case of intellectual properties, these opportunities come with new valuation challenges in the form of copyrights, trademarks, licensing agreements, and ownership and rights issues. Indeed, even knowing which valuation approach is appropriate for a revenue-producing catalogue of music, literature, film, or any other entertainment medium can be an appraisal challenge. On Wednesday, June 10, 2009, BV experts Kevin Yeanoplos, Bill Sipes, and Mike Pellegrino will make sense of this valuation arena in their 100-minute teleconference “Valuing Intellectual Property in Entertainment and the Arts.” This panel’s experience in intellectual property and entertainment valuation will provide the perfect guide to what every appraiser needs to know to take advantage of new opportunities while avoiding the pitfalls. The teleconference begins at 10:00a.m. PDT. Two CPE credits are available for this 100-minute presentation. To learn more, to hear Kevin Yeanoplos describe the program in his own words, or to register, click here.
