Many in the cannabis industry continue to mistakenly believe that cannabis-related subject matter is ineligible for patent protection due the federal legal status of cannabis under the CSA. This is untrue. In fact, a wide variety of inventions that “touch the plant” and which address ancillary products are patentable. Indeed, cannabis plants themselves can be patented. The panelists, both patent attorneys serving cannabis industry clients, will provide an overview of U.S. patents, including the three different types of patent protection available for cannabis-related inventions, namely utility patents, design patents and plant patents. The panelists will also provide examples of each kind of patent and when it might be useful for protecting your client’s interests, as well as practical guidance regarding pitfalls and issue spotting for the non-patent attorney in the cannabis industry.
