An interesting piece in Bloomberg looks at the struggle to lock in cannabis intellectual property:
“Where many companies tout their intellectual property but few have successfully obtained exclusive rights to their inventions. For young companies, it will be difficult to prove they were first with an invention in a sector that’s existed illegally for decades. Those companies that are granted patents could face years of lawsuits.”
As with so much else in this industry, the resolution of these questions is worth billions of dollars.
