How Intellectual Property Will Drive Cannabis Innovation

Presented By:

Joshua Masur, Partner, Zuber Lawler

There’s a lot of misinformation about intellectual property protection for cannabis businesses and innovators.  You’ll leave this talk with a better understanding of how, notwithstanding the ongoing impact of prohibition, you can use intellectual property rights to protect your business, including: what kinds of rights – especially patent, trademark, and trade secret protections – are available; how the courts are approaching cannabis IP; the potential role of intellectual property in protecting consumer safety; and the role that intellectual property rights (and litigation to enforce them) will play in the cannabis industry in the years to come.
