This paper first reviews two current methods to value patent licenses (industry standard royalty rates and the 25 percent rule). The paper then describes the Competitive Advantage Valuation (CAV) method and explains its application in valuing non-competitor and competitor licenses, in valuing non-exclusive and exclusive licenses, and in valuing the financial impact of licenses on non-licensees.

Keywords: Valuation, exclusive and non-exclusive patent licenses, competitor and non-competitor patent licenses
