Disney Trademarks ‘Seal Team 6′

Disney's Seal Team 6Alex Weprin writes on FishBowlNY:

In a perfect example of a big media company looking to capitalize on current events, The Walt Disney Company has trademarked “Seal Team 6,” which also happens to be the name of the elite special forces team that killed Osama Bin Laden.

The trademark applications came on May 3rd, two days after the operation that killed Bin Laden… and two days after “Seal Team 6″ was included in thousands of news articles and TV programs focusing on the operation.

Disney’s trademark applications for “Seal Team 6″ cover clothing, footwear, headwear, toys, games and “entertainment and education services,” among other things.

    Immediately after the Seal ‘double-tapped’ OBL, he was high-fived by his teammates and he said “I’m going to Disney World”. They’re riding the log ride now and getting ice cream sundaes.

     So the Disney movie will start with the Evil Overlord Osama sipping tea in slippers while watching a cheap TV, when suddenly a team of highly trained Government Assasins break down the door, shoot anyone that looks dangerous, capture the Evil Unarmed Osama….then execute him in front of children while he begs for his life……Yeah that sounds like a typical Disney Film! LOL…….I’m not saying I’m not glad the guy’s dead…but come on! This isn’t exactly a ‘Disney’ story here !! What the Hell are they thinking trying to copyright it??? All I know is the next time I hear a major news event…no matter how gruesome the actual details…I’m gonna try to copyright every term and buzzword associated with it. Might as well make some cash off of it myself….I mean ya never know when Disney is going to try to buy up all the copyrights of a story like that and make some kids movie out of it…..Hey I wonder if I can copyright any words or terms involved with the Gifford’s shooting? I bet Disney will be all over that story eventually!

    Thanks for the heads up, Disinformation!  Now I know that I can look forward to a a series of fat royalty checks myself–I copyrighted the letter “E” last year, knowing that as the single most frequently used vowel in the English language, I could count on a steady stream of rents to support my lavish lifestyle.
     
    But it wasn’t all gravy–I earned that mo-fo.  You try convincing anyone, even a bunch of $1,000 per hour intellectual property attorneys, that there’s any justifiable reason to award me proprietary rights over a phoneme I couldn’t possibly have invented or developed, and to the complete exclusion of the public good.
