    Event Summary
    The market potential of cannabis has been continuously expanding along with its growing legalization in the US. With the rise of commercial opportunities, patenting activities in the cannabis industry have also increased, posing new challenges to patent owners and applicants alike. One of the most significant issues surrounding cannabis patent is the assumption that early applicants received an overly broad scope of patents which might affect the industry’s market flow and development in the long run.

    While current cases including Canopy Growth Corporation v. GW Pharmaceuticals PLC could provide awareness on the existing regulations for cannabis patent litigation, others believe that will also open additional uncertainties in the wider industry.

Bell (Arnall Golden Gregory LLP) provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion of the recent developments in cannabis patent litigation.
