Mr. Narvis Wu, the secretary-general of Taiwan Intellectual Property Operation Association, mentioned that, Disney raised about USD 725 million from Industrial Bank of Japan in 1988 through issuance of bonds against future earnings of an amusement park. The investors had to bare any shortfall in the revenues and Disney continued to get its royalties stably. The investors showed interest and faith in Disney brand, and responded positively in the market.
Mr. Narvis Wu further pointed out that, when evaluating the intangible assets, the past performance is still the key point. The evaluation is credible only if the trademark, patent, or copyright has already shown some values in the past.
