Disney Trademarks “Seal Team 6,” the Name of the Elite Special Forces Unit that Killed Bin Laden


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.

Here’s to you, Capitalism.

Entertainment goliath Disney already has trademark applications in for the name of the Navy Seals team that took out Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan earlier this month.

From FishbowlNY:

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.

Fishbowl also supplies links to not one, not two, but all three of the trademark applications, in case you don’t believe them.

  1. How nice of the American taxpayer to make the investment in training and support of this military … just so Disney can make a buck peddling war (some day your prince will come?) to kids.
