Disney Trademarks Seal Team 6

May 15, 2011

This is just disgusting and is the type of thing that makes me want to cry.

Disney has trademarked Seal Team 6 for future video games.

Where does this sellout of everything we are and stand for stop?

Because of their involvement in the death of Osama bin Laden, SEAL Team Six has been in the news a lot lately. Considered by many to be the most elite special forces team in the entire U.S. military, it’s not surprising that they would capture the public’s interest.

Disney has decided to capitalize on this new found notoriety by filing an application for the trademark to “SEAL Team Six.” The application covers “hand-held units for playing electronic games other than those adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor” as well as “Christmas stockings,” “Christmas tree ornaments and decorations,” “snow globes,” and “clothing.” Interestingly enough, the actual SEAL Team Six was renamed in 1987. The unit is now known as the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (or DEVGRU for short). No company holds the trademark to DEVGRU
