ktMINE is a database of IP licenses and royalty rates … but it is much more to participants in the IP M&A world. The database readily identifies market players and interested parties, identifies agreed-upon deal structures, and records the value of intellectual property in a particular deal.
As David Jarczyk (and others) write in IAM Magazine, companies engage in IP deal making to generate revenue from licensing-out unused or old intellectual property, or to increase the likelihood of a competitive advantage by licensing-in intellectual property for their business operations.
In either case, rights holders that use IP deals generally increase the value of their IP portfolio by providing additional sources of profits, and in order to manage their licensing program effectively, the most experienced rights holders turn to license agreement filings as a source of information.
License agreements are available for nearly every industry, and the ktMINE database has over 250 market areas represented worldwide. If you would like to see what ktMINE can do for you and your clients, contact us here.
