This month in Caldwell Chats: Cannabis & Intellectual Property, Caldwell IP’s Director of Business Development and Client Relations, Bailey Domingos, sits down with the Chair of Life Sciences Practice, Patent Attorney Katie Rubino to discuss the growing Cannabis and Cannabinoid Sector. In the past few years growth in the cannabis industry has boomed along with a flurry of patenting activity and litigation, brought by the United Cannabis Corporation, due to changes in federal regulations. In this episode, we learn more about the reasons for this unprecedented growth and IP considerations for cannabis & cannabinoid companies. Katie answers questions such as:
What has spurred the production of cannabis and cannabinoid products in the past few years?
What innovations are we seeing right now in this space?
How do players in cannabis protect their innovations?
What types of patents make sense as part of an overall business development strategy ?
What are some potential hurdles to overcome when obtaining a patent in this sector?
