Cannabis Prosecution Trends: The Effects of Cross-Industry Citations on Cannabis Patent Grant
The overlap of the Cannabis industry with various other industries is not news anymore. Industries like Pharma, Food and Beverage, etc. have a lot in common with the Cannabis industry. But one difference that sets things apart is that these other industries have been longer in the market than the Cannabis industry, and resultantly have been protecting their IP rights way before the Cannabis industry had even initiated.
Now, the protection of intellectual property rights is a major component in business and the same goes for the Cannabis industry as well. In the last six years, we have witnessed an increase in the patent filing trends in the Cannabis industry globally. However, some of the immediate questions that still need answers are:
