The concept of due diligence often arises when intellectual property (IP) assets become available for potential acquisition. Any number of reasons may lead to this availability. An asset may be for sale due to an entity going out of business or because an entity is in bankruptcy. An entity could also decide to sell the asset if there is simply no longer a need or desire to maintain rights in the asset, or due to another entity’s inquiry into possibly acquiring that asset.
