This article reviews a recent bankruptcy which gets at the value of intellectual property (and especially trademarks). A popular rapper has filed bankruptcy, and owes a large sum to his record label. He wants to sign with a rival under his current stage name; other parties in the bankruptcy are pushing for him to liquidate all his assets, including the name (which is trademarked). As the article explains, his name is likely the rapper's most valuable piece of property, and although it lies at the boundary of what can be the subject of a trademark, it carries real economic value nonetheless.
