Word is out in the business world that Disney is seeking to capitalize on the death of Osama bin Laden by trying to trademark the words "SEAL Team 6." Why is that not surprising? After all, it's what Disney does best.
Sources have said that the patents have been filed, but links to the actual application fail to show up after clicking the link. However, it would not be surprising if Disney actually has filed a trademark for the term, as it has a history of capitalizing on current trends and remaking history to suit its own purposes.
Gone are the days of Snow White and Cinderella and the innocence and wonder that surrounded it. The appeal of Disney for many kids and parents alike was the family friendly quality of its goods. Now, however, Disney is churning out shows and movies with only marketing in mind, rather than quality.
No doubt the real Navy SEALs who took out bin Laden are not at all happy about this trademark application. It is ridiculous, in any event, and if the trademark is granted, it is nothing more than a slap in the face of those men who risked their lives in order to bring down the world's most notorious terrorist.
