Domain names as IP

Issued: February 01 2010
Domain names are part of a company’s intangibles and have become a valuable intellectual property. Jannik Skou and Casper Thomsen explore why they need professional handling.

“In the past few decades, there has been a shift, a transformation, in what economists call the production function of companies – the major assets that create value and growth. Intangibles are fast becoming substitutes for physical assets” 
 
Baruch Lev – professor of accounting and finance, Stern School of Business, New York University
