In all the excitement following the execution of Osama bin Laden, the Disney Corporation has tried to cash in by trademarking the name 'SEAL Team 6'. While they hoped to use the name and image of this elite (and deadly) fighting squad on all manner of T-shirts, lunch boxes, video games and infant crib mobiles, the Navy is fighting back. With the weight of the US military and government behind the SEALs, it is unlikely the Disney lawyers will be able to 'own' the bin Laden killers.
Dogs and Jeans would like to suggest some other newsworthy people rife for trademarking that Mickey and The Gang might find an easier corporate victory:
