Intellectual property represents both opportunities and challenges for appraisers: creating a large amount of often difficult work.  In entertainment and the arts, however, these two facts are changing rapidly.  New technology is making distribution easier, thereby undercutting older economies of scale; transactions and other valuations involving artistic catalogues are increasing along with complications and considerations in the valuation process.

In “Valuing Intellectual Property in Entertainment and the Arts,” valuation experts Kevin Yeanoplos, Bill Sipes, and Mike Pellegrino will give a detailed and in-depth look at the valuation work and valuation challenges created by these changes.  Through accounting guidelines, considerations of the viable life of an artistic creation, and new applications of the income and market approaches. Our panel will cover what every valuation analyst needs know when called to appraise a catalogue of music, literature, film, or any other medium in today’s environment.
