This is a simple question and answer session regarding how to value a trademark as part of businesse’s portfolio of assets. This is a presentation that I did in conjuction with Corporate Creations.
The topics include the follwing: using a trademark to test out a new product line, exploring expansion into a new market segment, creating a family of trademarks, licensing a trademark to others to increase value and many other strategies for individuals, entrepreneurs, small business owners and mid size companies.
In addition, the presentation covers avoiding using a trademark in a manner that decreases its value. For example, using a trademark that creates a genericness problem, failure to police others, and avoiding a naked license problem.
