"In this book, we attempt to cover some frequently asked questions on intellectual property and intangible assets and to engage in brief discussions on the subject of identifying value. We identify many of the main types of intellectual property and intangible assets. We also look at the primary, traditional, and not-so-traditional methods of valuing these assets and include case studies and various situations in which the valuation of these assets is required." -- from the Introduction, p. 3.
