IP and Cannabis: The Current Landscape

This webinar has ended.


The cannabis industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the U.S., and that growth extends to cannabis-related IP. More than 1,200 patent applications containing the word “cannabis” were filed at the USPTO in 2019, up from just over 400 in 2009. Although the laws and regulations governing cannabis are in flux, this market and the IP concerns that accompany it are only expected to grow.

In this webinar, Fish’s Keith Barritt, Steven Katz, Steffen Lake, Jon Jekel, and Angela Parsons cover all aspects of cannabis-related IP, including:

  • FDA regulation of cannabis products
  • Obtaining patent protection for cannabis-related inventions
  • Issues to consider when litigating cannabis-related IP
  • Trademark strategies for protecting and enforcing canna-brands
