In the end he accidently came up with chewing gum, which was way beyond what he thought he'd inventing

    One thing people don't really think about is how historical bubble gum is. Back during the 1920s, gum was the best thing in the world. And then in the Great Depression, gum was heaven. There was no question about it, gum was a big hit in the 1920s. Although it might not have changed lives of your average person, it sure did give them comfort during these harsh times. And it gave the workers at the Fleer Company hopes that they could keep their jobs and keep getting paid. Money was scarce, and having a job was a huge life saver. Not many people had the opprotunity to work at a big hit factory, but lucky enough, these people got to. To everyone else, a piece of gum was a dream. It may not have changed their lives physically, but the flavor that melted in their mouth sure did bring them comfort.
    Who doesn't love Dubble Bubble? There doubfully is anyone who doesn't like bubble gum, accept for the people who haven't tasted it yet. Dubble Bubble was a loveable (and chewable) invention from the start. It had the right appeal, scent, and taste to it, and it was something that everyone could enjoy. The first afternoon of Dubble Bubble open to the public was no where near bad. As being sold out sounds like a place where you don't want to be, for a business and factory worker, it's right where you want to be. People had loved chewing gum, so why not love bubble gum? It was so much more fun than chewing gum anyway. It was fun, challenging, and tasty all at the same time, and nothing could beat that.
    Now, if you made a very successful invention, you wouldn't want anyone stealing your idea. So you recieve a patent. A U.S. patent is a document that basically says no one else can try to sell or import your product without your permission, otherwise, it would be considered plagiarism. It's like a Copyright to a book or a movie; no one can say a quote or try and sell a monolouge without either giving credit to that movie or book, and/or getting permission from the producers or publishers. So it gives the inventor all rights to protect its product. Although now, you can get a patent by filling out an application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Accept, Diemer decided not to get a patent for his bubble gum. Dubble Bubble has never been patented before, but that doesn't mean you can go ahead and remake it, because that won't work.
