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.
