  • The background and regulatory framework changes for the new decade that every business should know, from the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to the many other privacy laws currently in effect or anticipated, as well as the ongoing debate over a comprehensive federal privacy law.
  • The unique ways that the CCPA touches on cannabis businesses and the data those businesses are required, or elect, to collect, and how the CCPA and The Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (“MAUCRSA”) may co-exist.
  • Intellectual property development and protection in the cannabis industry and how your clients can best develop a robust IP portfolio in this growing industry; the wide variety of protection that is available to your clients in the world of patents and trademarks.
  • Trade secrets and how commercial agreements affect the development and protection of intellectual property in the cannabis industry, and how both traditional and new approaches to IP protection are both at play.
