Intellectual Property Securitization by Alexander Kirsch [2007]

A small practitioner's book which provides an interesting overview of securitization in general, in addition to the specific securitization of IP revenue streams.  I picked it up it up because I was interested in finding out more about lending against intangible assets. 

This book is an admirable basic primer into how securitization works and I learned a lot from it.  It also makes the interesting point that intellectual property is in general an under-exploited asset.

An interesting historical footnote - the book was written in 2007, prior to the financial crisis, and accordingly securitization is viewed as an unalloyed good.
