Intangible assets are comprised of patents with estimated useful lives between approximately 1 to 11 years. Once placed in service, the Company will amortize the costs of intangible assets over their estimated useful lives on a straight-line basis.  Costs incurred to acquire patents, including legal costs, are also capitalized as long-lived assets and amortized on a straight-line basis with the associated patent. The Company assesses fair market value for any impairment to the carrying values.  As of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012 management concluded that there was no impairment to the acquired assets.

 

Amortization expense for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was $475,680 and $0, respectively. Future amortization of intangible assets, net is as follows:
