Harry Clarke » George Fane on Labor's expropriation of mining assets
The RSPT will adversely affect investment, jobs and production.  The RSPT isn’t really the E. Cary Brown tax proposal of 1948. This required that government should levy a tax of, say, 40c on each $1 earned and contribute 40c whenever $1 is spent on the project.  Since governments prefer to collect revenue than to pay it, an amended version of the proposal, known as the resource rent tax , was proposed by Ross Garnaut and Anthony Clunies-Ross. They suggested that instead of paying out on losses, the government should allow the investors to carry them forward to offset against future profits. Of course the future profits ... market research, surveys and trends

The International Trade Commission is in charge of enforcing the Tariff Act of 1930, a law passed during the Depression to protect U.S.-based companies from unfair trade practices, including the sale of goods that infringe valid U.S. patents. In recent years, however, the agency's definition of what qualifies as "domestic industry" has expanded to the point that small patent-holding companies with just a handful of employees ( Saxon Innovations , St. Clair Intellectual Property Consultants) and even individual inventors have been allowed to proceed with ITC litigation. Congress helped expand the ranks of who ... market research, surveys and trends


CPT page on Royalties on patents for health care inventions
Royalty rates for technologies run the range. Typically, technologies are licensed, not sold. One reason may be for tax depreciation advantages, another is risk. It is extremely risky for a licensee to drop millions of dollars to buy a patent. It just doesn't happen very often. Besides, licensors make more money from royalties anyway. The more product is sold, the more money they make. All parties benefit from royalties, where the licensee pays the licensor a percentage of gross sales, which usually range from 2-10 %...

Intellectual Property Analysis / Valuation White Papers Article Four
The pharmaceutical industry is currently undergoing structural changes related to new product development. These changes are a result of the “pipeline problem” confronting most large drug companies. That is, the patents on many widely prescribed drugs are about to expire, and there are not enough new drugs in development. The number of new molecular entities (i.e., drugs not yet brought to market) approved annually by the FDA has declined 60 percent since 1996. And, during the same period, new drug applications have decreased nearly 40 percent. 1 According to Lehman Brothers, all of the “Big Pharma” ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Royalty Payments to Faculty - The Catholic University of America ...
A royalty is a payment for the use of a valuable intangible property right. Section 1235 of the U.S. tax code allows inventors to recieve long term capital gain treatment on royalties received for a patent if the rights in the patent are transferred to a third party.   A question that comes up in the university context is how to treat income received by  faculty members when it is received as a result of an invention by the faculty member that is considered "institutional research" and then licensed by the school to a third party. In this situation, institutions usually give the faculty member a portion ...

Licensing invention: Please suggest some standard financial ...
I hope I'm not baiting the answers here, I have heard of all sorts of licensing-lawyer/client relationships exist for representing an invention. In patenting, there are limits to the lawyer/client relationship because of potential conflicts of interest and liability insurance issues. Do those same issues exist in licensing representation? As long as the client retains the final approval on the deal (and the right to have it reviewed by a third party), I don't see any potential conflicts or limitations. Comments please? The number of different answers in <12 hours suggests wildly varied business models. I need to ID the ...
