Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) has issued the Intellectual Property (IP) Valuation Manual: A Preliminary Guide.
It is intended as a reference for APEC economies primarily to enable them to present to stakeholders why IP has value, how it is being valued, and why it is important to come up with an IP valuation mechanism. While this manual elaborates important principles as a guide in valuing IP assets, it is not designed to be a comprehensive guide in valuing various kinds of IP. A more thorough discussion and in-depth study will be conducted to develop a more detailed and comprehensive guide.
