Disney Trademarks 'Seal Team 6,' Name Of Unit That Killed Bin Laden

Posted: Updated:

When the world discovered that a group of Navy SEALs called "SEAL Team 6" was responsible for killing Osama bin Laden, it's not likely that many people thought, "how can we trademark 'SEAL Team 6' to make money off of it?" Fear not, though: the Walt Disney Company did think just that.

FishbowlNY uncovered three trademark applications that Disney made in early May to claim the rights to the phrase "SEAL Team 6."

The applications cover "entertainment and education services," "toys, games and playthings" and "clothing, footwear and headwear."

It remains to be seen what products will come of these trademarks, but the bin Laden raid video game and pajama set has to be just around the corner.
