This paper first describes the three basic valuation methods (cost, market and income)and the current valuation methods for intellectual property (25 percent rule, industry standards, ranking, surrogate measures, disaggregation methods, the Monte Carlo method and the real option methods). The paper then introduces a new method to value intellectual property - Competitive Advantage Valuation (CAV). The CAV method is explained in general terms, and the applications and advantages of the CAV method are discussed.
