When valuing patents and technology, experts at Boolean IP Consulting consider various valuation techniques in light of the information available and the situation. Each methodology has strengths and weaknesses that depend on the data available related to market factors, such as historical results, industry trends, and the competitive environment, as well as the specific characteristics of the asset being valued and the degree to which they are being exploited.
This approach is based upon the concept of replacement cost as an indicator of value and the idea that an investor would pay no more for an asset than what it would cost to replace the asset with one of equal utility. This method does not necessarily give an indication of the economic benefit derived through ownership and utilization of the subject IP. Rather, it provides an absolute minimum value for the subject IP.
This approach attempts to value an IP by examining recently observable market values for similar assets. This approach is best if an active market exists that can provide several examples of recent arm’s-length transactions that include adequate information on their terms and conditions.
This approach attempts to value an IP by estimating the present value of the future economic benefit it is expected to produce. This approach is one of the most widely used methodologies in intangible asset valuation because the information required is often reasonably accurate and readily available.
Why Boolean IP For Patent & Technology Valuation
Our experts are capable of deciding the fairest and most realistic method to calculate value of the target patent /technology and derive a practical value based on highly researched facts. Our experts can handle public databases on royalty rates, IP valuation and transaction values. We believe that value must be based on market conditions, and any valuation should adapt itself to today’s global and economic realities.
We conduct valuation by taking in account both the qualitative parameters (such as uniqueness of technology, scope/depth of the technology, patent enforceability, competing technologies, feasibility and acceptance etc.) as well as quantitative parameters (such as market size/share, annual turnover, remaining life of patent, future cash flow, discount factor and absolute profit etc.)
We follow an agile model of communication i.e. keep you updated with the search findings throughout the project cycle and when you are busy we set the right expectations from search initiation to avoid any surprises in outcome and trim the interim connections.
Flexible and Personalized Solutions
Whether it comes to our solution reports, project timelines, time zone difference calls or costing modules; we provide services suitable for everyone’s personal taste and needs. Wherever needed, we adopt an agile model of engagement to keep you satisfied, always.

What is a patentability search?A patentability search, also known as a novelty or prior art search, is a comprehensive investigation to determine if an invention or idea is eligible for patent protection by identifying prior patents and publications related to the concept.
Why should I conduct a patentability search?Conducting a patentability search helps assess whether your invention is novel and non-obvious, two essential criteria for patent eligibility. It can save time and resources by avoiding pursuing patents for ideas already in the public domain.
When should I conduct a patentability search?It's advisable to perform a patentability search before investing significant time and resources in developing your invention, as early as possible in the innovation process.
Who should conduct a patentability search?Patent attorneys, patent agents, or professional search firms with expertise in intellectual property can perform patentability searches. It's crucial to have someone knowledgeable in patent law and search techniques to ensure comprehensive results.
What information is needed for a patentability search?To conduct a patentability search, you should provide a detailed description of your invention, including any drawings, diagrams, or prototypes. Additionally, any relevant keywords or phrases can assist in the search.
How long does a patentability search take?The duration of a patentability search can vary depending on the complexity of the invention and the volume of existing patents and publications. It may take anywhere between 4 to 8 working days.
What is considered prior art in a patentability search?Prior art includes any publicly available information, such as patents, patent applications, research papers, articles, and any other documentation relevant to the invention's field of technology.
What if I find similar prior art during the search?If you uncover similar prior art, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't obtain a patent. We can assess the relevance and help you determine if there are distinguishing features that could make your invention patentable.
Does a patentability search guarantee a patent grant?No, a patentability search doesn't guarantee a patent grant. It only provides information about the existing state of the art. Whether you can obtain a patent depends on various factors, including the novelty and non-obviousness of your invention. We can help you during the prosecution of your patent application resulting into grant of your patent.
What are the potential benefits of conducting a patentability search?Conducting a patentability search can help you: Avoid pursuing ideas that lack novelty. Save time and money on unnecessary patent applications. Enhance the quality and strength of your patent application. Better understand your competition and the state of the industry in your field of technology.
