Star Wars Franchise owns tons of patents!

Star Wars: Episode VII, The Force Awakens arrived in theaters recently.

Disney has gone crazy with the marketing, which started the internet meme “Disney needs to calm the fuck down”.

People are posting pics of some weird marketing campaigns by Disney. But we at PatentYogi are not complaining. With a franchise like Star Wars, Disney does not want to leave any stone unturned and we are loving it.

George Lucas, the creator/owner of the franchise was very proud and protective of their intellectual property.

So he filed lot of patents.

Lucasfilm and related companies have been granted tons of design patents to protect various characters and objects.
