This is one to make you scratch your head. SEAL Team 6, the highly celebrated group that took down Osama Bin Laden less than a month ago, has been purchased.
Let's get this straight. A publicly named organization, SEAL Team 6 can have their name trademarked for use in merchandise?
No really. The rights to the name have a trademark application applied for by the Disney Corporation. Just two days after Bin Laden was taken out, Disney applied for a trademark to put the mark on merchandise like hats, toys, Christmas stockings, Christmas decor and—yes, actually—snow globes.
