Making profit is the main aim for any intellectual property owner. However, it is first necessary to define the cost of intellectual property object at first. Determination of the estimated cost of intellectual property objects is an essential element of transformation of a result of creative activity of a human into a commercially valuable product. Thanks to such estimation the intellectual property will become the powerful element of intangible assets of an enterprise and can be introduced as an article of merchandise into commerce.
In addition, the expert valuation is extremely necessary during disputes concerning the compensation of moral and material damage in connection with illegal use of intellectual property objects.
Today, our Institute is a key player in intellectual property valuation activity in Ukraine. This activity is supervised by well-known Ukrainian intellectual property economics expert, Post Doctoral degree holder, PhD in Economics, Professor Oleksandr Butnik-Siverskiy. It is under his guidance that here is a group of appraisers officially certified by the State Property Fund of Ukraine and authorized to carry out evaluation activity concerning:
- intellectual property objects
- property rights
- property itself
- complete-property complexes
- business of economic activity entities, etc.
Professionalism of the appraisers was highly estimated due to the valuation works with respect to such well-known brands as:
- Adidas-Salomon AG (Germany)
- Bayer Aktiengesellschaft (Germany)
- TNK LLC
- Kraft Foods Ukraine JSC
The sphere of intellectual property is a cross-road of several sub-spheres.
