Is Intellectual Property a Good Investment?

Jan 9, 2008
There are those who would prefer to invest in things they can touch and feel. Though stocks of a potential nature certainly have value it can sometimes be difficult to believe they will return on an investment. It seems to be easier to believe in things we can see thus the prominence of intellectual property. This is not to say this is a bad idea but instead to highlight the benefits of investing in intellectual property. Here are some of the potential benefits.

When one thinks of intellectual properties it is often divided into two different categories. You have industrial property, which includes patented designs and inventions. Also copyright type productions which include artistic type works and things of a creative nature. It is difficult to put a definite definition on intellectual property. To some it is anything that is of original thought. To others it is any you have created and applied copyright laws to.

If you just finished creating your own original piece of music and it became popular would you want the residual profits from said song? Well that is the idea of investing in intellectual property. You invest in some piece of art or invention that you expect to gain value. Of course a realistic expectation is that the value will increase ever so slightly and gradually but there are exceptions in which value jumps significantly in a short period of time.

So what is the true value of a piece of intellectual property? Well that is up to public demand to decide whether you like it or not. No matter how valuable you may feel a piece of property or art is it is only as valuable as the public deems it to be. Opinions are important so far as they are in common with other opinions.

The question here is intellectual property a good investment. Well, if you are read up and experienced in the arena of whatever physical thing you are betting on then yes it is a good investment. If you have zero experience with this then it is probably wise that you stick with something you know. There is definitely money to be made on intellectual property so long as you know the industry. There is nothing inherently wrong with investing in something you truly believe in so long as it really has value that will increase over time.
