May 19, 2021
ON

OBA Information Technology & Intellectual Property Law PROGRAM
12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

Activity in the cannabis sector has been soaring since Canada legalized the purchase and use of recreational cannabis in 2018. Other jurisdictions have seen this same increase in cannabis activity, and global consumer spending on cannabis is expected to reach $32 billion next year. This has created unique challenges for growers, retailers and marketers in ensuring compliance with government regulations, while obtaining and enforcing intellectual property rights to protect their innovations. Join our expert panel to gain a further understanding of the regulatory, advertising and intellectual property issues arising in the cannabis industry, including key topics such as:

  • Advertising and promotion of cannabis products under the Cannabis Act and associated regulations
  • Obtaining and enforcing trademark rights
  • Obtaining patents and plant breeders’ rights
  • A review of the U.S. cannabis landscape
