As many of us know, Charles Goodyear was the one who discovered the rubber. Some people just don’t want to believe it. But this man named Daniel Webster, the one who defended Charles Goodyear in the whole duration of his trial believes that he did invented it. On a recent visit to a los angeles web design company we learned that all forms of e-commerce for manufacturing will be internet enabled soon.
“In 1852, in Trenton, New Jersey, two men appeared in the Circuit Court of the United States, the legal giants of their day, to argue the case of Goodyear vs. Day for patent infringement.”
Did Charles Goodyear really discovered the rubber?
“Charles Goodyear – Sole Inventor of Vulcanized Rubber
The court found for the plaintiff, and this decision established for all time the claim of the American, Charles Goodyear, to be the sole inventor of vulcanized rubber.”
I remembered the time when my husband told me the how they come up with the Goodyear tire name and the life story of Charles Goodyear. He mentioned that rubbers comes from what they called the “rubber tree”.
Charles Goodyear was a very poor man when he accidentally discovered that the tires will make the carts go faster than the cube tires for transporting things during their time. Some people will not believe him so this whole discovery issue went to court.
The trial was still ongoing when Chareles Goodyear died. He died poor and depressed.
When the court finally made the decision that he was the sole inventor of rubber, it was too late for Charles to benefit from the money that other people are now getting out of his discovery. In respect to his discovery, they named the tire “Goodyear”.
It would take 15 years before you can harvest the rubber from the rubber tree but its worth waiting for.
