The market potential of cannabis has been continuously expanding along with its growing legalization in the United States. With the rise of commercial opportunities, patenting activities in the cannabis industry 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 that might affect 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.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Recent Developments in Cannabis Patent Litigation
  • Cannabis Commercialization: Challenges and Pitfalls
  • Canopy Growth Corporation v. GW Pharmaceuticals PLC: Updates
  • Other Notable Cases: Impact on Cannabis Industry
