Protecting Your Intellectual Property During the Cannabis Boom

Archive Now Available!

Kimberly A. McManus, PhD, Erica L. Lowthers, PhD and Ken Clark

New products, strains, delivery methods, methods of medical treatment and uses are just some of the many innovations being protected in the cannabis industry. In order to gain a competitive edge in this booming sector, it is important to acquire the appropriate intellectual property rights to protect your innovative assets from IP theft.

In this session, our panel addresses some of the most common questions surrounding patents, trademarks, designs and breeders’ rights in the cannabis market.

Topics include:

  • What is a patent, industrial design, and breeders’ rights? What are the advantages of each?
  • What is a patentable invention and a registrable design?
  • What are some common patent filing strategies?
  • What is freedom-to-operate?
