Russell Parr Presentation on Royalty Rates to the Licensing Executives Society

As we are just launching this new blog on the financial aspects of IP, I wanted to highlight a recent event of interest to all involved with intellectual property valuation and licensing.

At the inaugural meeting of the Portland/SW Washington chapter of the Licensing Executives Society (LES), Russell Parr recently presented an overview of his just published booklet titled "Determination of Royalty Rates". This was the largest inaugural meeting for any LES chapter and it was terrific to have attracted a speaker like Russell, a luminary in the area of valuation of intellectual assets.

The booklet describes various approaches along with examples of determining royalty rates using multiple analytical techniques. These include infringement damages analysis (profit differential), comparable transactions, investment rate of return, and discounted cash flow. A copy of the booklet is available at no cost via email request to

For those of you who would like to see a video of Russell's presentation, I've included it below with a link to the entire video.

Shawn Pilkington, VP at Innovation Asset Group, is the new chairman of the Portland/SW Washington LES chapter and kicked off the meeting. It was a great night and terrific to see the spectrum of attendees from the technology, corporate, and legal communities in the Portland metro area.
