Lawline CLE: Protecting Plant Innovation


Webinar - live from Lawline in NYC

Cooley lawyers Dan Knauss, Chris Holly and Erich Veitenheimer will be participating in a webinar at Lawline on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 11:30 am EDT.

This program will provide an executive summary overview of the core concepts in protecting plant IP (accessible to all audiences) and include an update on the 2018 Farm Bill, which significantly expanded IP protection possibilities and included key changes impacting the Hemp and CBD industries. The course will also review important recent patent caselaw and best practices to ensure IP protection is not inadvertently lost through common business practices in the product development process. Finally, the presenters will discuss how the ever-expanding legal cannabis industry is interfacing with the complex strata of laws and regulations affecting it, with an emphasis on IP issues.
