The Intellectual Property of the Fourth of July

Patriotism is on full display in the United States every July 4, and Independence Day is the highlight of summer for tens of millions of Americans. The day is typically celebrated with parades, red and white bunting, Revolutionary War imagery and lots of food and drink.

Not surprisingly, intellectual property is found throughout the day’s festivities. We thought it would be fun to research the IP of the Fourth of July and look at some of the patents and trademarks that help us do, drink, eat and celebrate the day. (Clicking on the titles will take you to the respective Google Patent page).

He’s the inventor of the Super Soaker, the father of the Nerf N-Strike dart gun, and worked on NASA’s Galileo, Voyager and Cassini space programs.

He is developing a new type of engine without any moving parts that can convert heat directly into electricity, as well as a solid state battery using a glass electrolyte instead of a liquid. He has two engineering degrees and over 100 patents protecting an amazing variety of inventions.

He’s a really nice guy, too. He’s Lonnie Johnson, one of America’s most prolific and successful inventors.
