What is the Value of my Intellectual Property?

"What’s the value of my IP?” is a question that comes up in the mind of a lot of IP owners, enticed by news of lavishly priced IP rights, they would like to see if they can get their IP monetized in a similar lucrative way. For the companies that receive the question of whether they can valuate the IP this is not always good news. “It depends”  is mostly not a reply that is welcomed by a hopeful IP owner, who expects immediate enthusiasm from the valuator and a strong confirmation of his own ideas about how valuable his IP is.
