CannaLegal now offers cannabis intellectual property consulting. CannaLegal has contracted with an Intellectual Property (IP) attorney who specializes in branding, commercial licensing agreements, federal and state trademarks, and patent law preparations for cannabis businesses. CannaLegal can assist our cannabis business clients with managing cannabis trademark portfolios including drafting trademark option letters, preparing cease and desist letters, filing and prosecuting trademark applications, and litigating trademark disputes in Federal Court and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Cannabis Intellectual Property consulting
As of January 1, 2018, the California Secretary of State is allowing businesses to register their cannabis-related trademarks or services marks if the mark is lawfully in use in commerce within California and the specification matches the classification of goods and services adopted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. These requirements are complicated by the fact that not all cannabis-related products can be registered under current law due to the product’s inability to meet federal classifications.
CannaLegal has the strategies and knowledge to obtain state and federal trademarks and service marks to protect your business. Please contact our office to set up an appointment to speak with our attorneys about your intellectual property rights.
