1)Explain the difference between artistic-related intangible assets and contract-related intangible assets.
Intangible assets provide future benefits to the owner and lack physical substance. They have a useful life for more than one year. Artistic-related intangible assets are related to the rights of artistic works such as plays, photographs, motion pictures, musical and literary works, etc. Ownership of these works are protected by a copyright. The legal life of a copyright is for the life of the creator plus 70 years. The useful life of the copyright is generally shorter than the legal life.
A contract-related intangible asset is the value of rights that come from a contractural relationship. For example, a franchise arrangement. The franchisor allows the franchisee the right to use trademarks, names, processes, etc. to sell good or services like McDonald’s, FedEx, etc.
