PWC IP Database Boosts Active BV Arena
The Houston office of PricewaterhouseCoopers  operates the Intellectual Property Exchange , and online database of sellers and traders who offer IP online. The Web site also includes a knowledge library with links, online articles and access to other services.
The intellectual property marketplace is a hot topic for the accounting profession, given the new specialty CPA/ABV  accreditation offered by AICPA, and the entrance of organizations like the Financial Consulting Group , an association of more than 55 CPA firms who joint venture on business valuation and litigation engagements.
PWC has offered the site's services since summer 1999 for individual users at a rate of $25 to access the service, and charges $200 to list any properties on the site. There now is a new corporate rate--$500 to $2,000 annually-- charged for multiple users.
