JerrySJD :

Yes and no. The value is, technically whatever a willing buyer will pay you, a willing seller. They buyer may ask about the value of your inventory, but the more important question is gross sales, net profit, real estate owned (if any). Also, if you can get them to take 49%, you are far better off. Buyers know this, so it might be tough.

JerrySJD :

Whatever your buyer will pay is the value.


What is my best bet to negociate with a buyer if I hold a US patent? How can I calculate what a patent is worth to sell for a lump sum?

JerrySJD :

Make him make the offer. No telling what a patent is worth.

JerrySJD :

You do not want to bid against yourself.

JerrySJD :

How much could you get if you license the patent? That cash flow could produce a value, but you still do not know how many license payments will be made.

JerrySJD :

Just between you and me, how much is the patent worth to you?
