Though the popular 40- or 60-watt incandescent light bulbs will no longer be manufactured after January 1, 2014, a man whose grandfather was friends with Thomas Edison found a loophole in the federal law that will legally allow him to make incandescent light bulbs that Americans can still purchase. Larry Birnbaum said that when the federal government "decided to ban incandescent lightbulbs, they left a loophole in the law" for what are known as "rough service" light bulbs.
