In a business sense, capitalizing rather than expensing the costs of an intangible asset can make the financial statements look better. That is certainly the case for assets purchased from completely unrelated third parties. Please consider this question in your post. How unrelated does a third party need to be? If a company enters into a contract with another company to develop an asset and the contract is basically a road map to the end result (with no provision for deviation and heavy supervision by the company purchasing the asset), would that purchase constitute a capitalizable asset? How about if the purchasing company does it through a subsidiary or as part of a development co-op?
