Patent Valuation

Do you know what your patent is worth?

When patent owners, whether individuals, companies or research entities, are interested in selling or monetizing their patents, they usually have no idea what their patents are worth. To address this need, yazamIP.com offers a patent valuation service that is of high-quality, yet affordable.

Personalized analysis, not software generated.

yazamIP.com offers patent owners a patent valuation that is based on the detailed analysis of highly experienced U.S. licensing and patent monetization experts. Our reports are not based on automated software. Rather they are generated with the input of U.S. experts with vast experience in the field.

Standard Valuation. For just $500 + value added tax, yazamIP.com will provide you with a patent valuation that provides an up to date market valuation of your patent.  This includes both a low- and high-value estimate for your patent. A report provides a valuation taking into account several patent value metrics:

  • Forward and reverse reference
  • Remaining life
  • Number of claims, length of the independent claims and claim strength
  • Significant players with patents in the field
  • Market score
  • Technology score (proprietary  valuation method based on the current and future deployment status of the technology)
  • Commercial score (proprietary  valuation method based on currently commercial products using similar technology)
Valuations can be performed for:
  • U.S. patents and published applications ($500 + VAT)
  • European equivalents of U.S. patents ($600 + VAT)

Portfolios:

If you have a portfolio of patents for which you want a valuation, contact us at info@yazamip.com or at 03-6444-808 for quantity discounts.

Place an order:

To place an order, contact us at info@yazamip.com or at 03-6444-808.  Alternatively, fill out the form on our home page, and when asked to “Identify the market in which the patent/s applies”, select Patent Valuation.  We will be in touch with you.

Valuation Summary:
High Value: $ 1,678,132
Low Value: $ 856,498
Current Market Value: $ 1,458,227

Methodology

An Intellectual Property valuation researcher will provide an initial market
approach patent valuation taking into account patent metrics such as the number
of forward references, the number of backward references, the number of claims,
the length of the independent claims, claim strength, the remaining life, the
market score, the technology score, the commercial score, and where applicable
the foreign counterpart status.

A senior licensing / patent brokerage expert will than perform a second review of
the patent value metrics above to establish the current market valuation, and
provide a lower and upper value range.

Abstract:
A radio control board passes a plurality of digital samples between a memory of a
computing device and a radio frequency (RF) transceiver coupled to a system bus of
the computing device. Processing of the digital samples is carried out by one or more
cores of a multi-core processor to implement a software-defined radio.

Claim Summary:
Total = 19
Independent = 3
Dependent = 16

Independent Claim #1
A radio control board comprising: a radio frequency (RF) controller for
communicating with an RF front end coupled to the radio control board; a bus
controller for coupling the radio control board for communication with a system bus
of a computing device; and a direct memory access DMA controller for receiving
digital samples of the received radio waveforms from the RF front end via the RF
controller and for storing the received digital samples in a memory on the computing
device via the system bus, wherein: the bus controller passes the received digital
samples from the DMA controller to the system bus for storage in the memory on
the computing device; the bus controller is configured to receive generated digital
samples from the computing device via the system bus for delivery to the RF
controller; the RF controller is configured to receive the generated digital samples
from the bus controller and pass the generated digital samples to the RF front end
for transmission as radio waveforms: the memory on the computing device is
organized into a plurality of slots; each slot begins with a descriptor that contains an
indicator that indicates whether data in the slot has been processed; the radio
control board sets the indicator when a slot of data is written; and a processor on
the computing device determines from the indicator whether to process the data in
the slot or flush the data corresponding to the slot.

Estimated Value of Patent US # 8,565,811

Utilizing the Market approach methodology described on Page 1 and Appendix I
the estimated value is anticipated as:

High Value: $ 1,678,132

Low Value: $ 856,498

Current Market Value: $ 1,458,227

Appendix I: Patent Valuation

Appendix I:

There are 3 classic valuation methodologies: Cost, Income and Market Approach.
yazamIP.com utilizes the Market Approach for providing patent valuation. This
valuation is based upon market value which is realized from market transactions
and makes use of prices actually paid for comparable assets.

The Market Approach is based on analysis of actual up to date comparable sales
of issued U.S. Patents. The comparable data is deemed comparable based on the
identity of the sellers and buyers of patents, the technology area of the patents,
the total transaction size, and the number of issued U.S. Patents sold.

In addition, the following patent value indicators are utilized which include:
backward citations; forward citations; Claims; Patent family; Litigations; Licensing
opportunities; Current technology in patent sector; and Life remaining.
Patents are a moving target; the price is affected by the buyers perceived level of
need which plays a significant role in driving the price. How one or more specific
buyers plan to use a particular group of assets will help determine the price it
eventually sells for, as well as perceived need, cash position, and strength of their
current patent coverage.

yazamIP.com developed a consensus approach that reflects the actual anticipated
market conditions.

Appendix II: Definitions

Citations may be made by the author (Backward Citations) or by the examiner
(Backward Citations by Examiner). They comprise a list of references that are
believed to be relevant prior art and which may have contributed to the
“narrowing” of the original application. The examiner can also cite references
(Non-Patent Citations) from technical journals, textbooks, handbooks and
sources.

Forward Citations are US patents or applications that cite this patent as a
reference.

Claim(s)
The definition of the monopoly rights that the applicant is trying to obtain for the
invention. The claims become the actual monopoly that is given when the patent
is granted. A patent consists of a specification and one or more claims. A claim in
the patent consist of a preamble and one or more claim elements. The claims
define, in technical terms, the extent of the protection conferred by a patent, or
the protection sought in a patent application. A valid claim is one which on the
invention described in the specification but does not read on any prior art.

There are two basic types of claims:
 independent claims, which stand on their own, and
 dependent claims, which depend on a single claim or on several claims and
generally express particular embodiments as fall-back positions.

Patent Evaluation Index Factors Scoring:

Applies a numeric score to each individual index from 0 to 4. Each index definition
starts at zero (0) for the lowest possible value thru four (4) for the highest
possible value.

0 = Not Used or Poor
1 = Low
2 = Average
3 = Very Good
4 = Excellent
