IP Value extraction – a shortlist of methods

A not for profit called ‘The Center for Advanced Technologies’ set up a group called the ‘National Knowledge & IP Management Task Force‘ (or K & IP Task Force).

They published a book in 2007 – called ‘Business Power – Creating new wealth from IP Assets’ which is worth a read.

The book includes a list of IP Value extraction strategies and scores them. Here’s the list, what would you add?
