1.6 million documents for benchmarking intangibles

The most comprehensive resource for comparing intangibles and locating supporting legal contracts, agreements, patents, 8Ks, and other documents.

The big four rely on Intangible Spring royalty rates data.

The source of truth for intangible benchmarks.

The right data helps you benchmark intangible assets. At Intangible Spring we manually link supporting documentation related to intangibles:

Patent registrations
License agreement
Press releases
Financial statements

For each license agreement, we pull out and normalize the pricing structure and licensing terms. We provide a summary of the intellectual property that is being licensed, so you can compare license terms and royalty rates.


Royalty Base - Benefits and Features

Examining a large number of documents to find primarily false positives is both frustrating and time consuming. Contracts enable you to limit your search to certain clauses. This enables your searches to identify those valuable needles in a haystack of contracts.
Payments in service agreements vary greatly; there are considerations in percentage, fixed, fees, shares, and varied percentage basis, such as sales or costs. Contract technology enables you to find the specific payment you seek.
Company agreements can be hundreds of pages long. Finding the one with a certain phrase is time consuming and tiresome. Contracts delivers pertinent snippets that display in complete context with a click.
Look for certain sorts of agreements (for example, consultancy, investment, management, and agency).
Conduct keyword searches in specific phrases, such as the agreement's title and preamble.
Search for specific service fees.
Robust Boolean full-text search feature.

There are three different ways to figure out how much an intangible asset is worth. The cost approach looks at how much it would cost to make or replace the asset again. The market approach looks at how much similar assets have sold for in the past. The income method uses the present value of a future stream of income to figure out how much an asset is worth (remaining useful life of the asset is a critical element).

Even though it's important to know what these methods are, knowing which one to use in a given situation can easily make or break your valuation.

A licencing agreement is a legal, written contract between two parties in which the owner of a brand, patent, or trademark gives permission to another party to use it. The agreement is made between the property owner (the licensor) and the person who is allowed to use the property (the licensee). It describes the type of licencing agreement, how the property can be used, and how the property owner will be paid.

The "Royalty base" is the price of an intangible product or a part of a product that is used to figure out the royalty that must be paid to a patent owner for a product to use a patented feature. The main rules for figuring out the royalty rate are that it should be "economically fair" to both the Licensor and the Licensee, and it should reflect the "value" the Licensee got from the Licensor over the course of the licence agreement. The value that is passed from the Licensor to the Licensee depends on certain things about the licenced product(s), the terms of the licence agreement, and the Licensor.

Legal data has a subcategory called "royalty rates data." This data shows how royalty rates have changed over time, often for intangible assets. Most of the time, information about royalty rates comes from the licencing agreements that both parties sign (the licensee and the licensor). There is a lot of information about the two parties and the agreed-upon rates of payment in the licencing agreements. The data on royalty rates tells us about licencing agreements involving intellectual property and the rates of royalties. This information comes with normalised licencing agreement terms and licenced patent numbers so that quantitative analysis can be done.

One of the main ways that royalty rate data is used is to figure out how much intangible assets are worth. This is because it can give companies a benchmark rate that they can use for their own assets. The best royalty rates datasets will have the most complete and easy-to-understand information about royalty rates that is regularly updated. These datasets will try to break down the licencing agreement to show you the most important parts and save you time when reviewing the data. Before you buy, always check the reviews of the data provider to make sure you're getting the best data possible. Ask for a sample of the data before you buy it so that you can make sure it fits your needs.
