Disney trademarks “SEAL Team Six” for games

Warp Zoned writes:

"Disney has decided to capitalize on this new found notoriety by filing an application for the trademark to “SEAL Team Six.” The application covers “hand-held units for playing electronic games other than those adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor” as well as “Christmas stockings,” “Christmas tree ornaments and decorations,” “snow globes,” and “clothing.” Interestingly enough, the actual SEAL Team Six was renamed in 1987. The unit is now known as the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (or DEVGRU for short). No company holds the trademark to DEVGRU." (Culture)

Well, THAT didn't take long. Although the idea of playing a Disney game where you double tap a terrorist above the left eye does seem a bit.....off.

its depressing that they got their hands on this.

There's just something about this that leaves a foul taste in my mouth. I just can't see how Disney could make use of SEAL Team Six... Ugh! Distressing thought.

They'll probably make a film about actual seals, as in the animal, and call it "Seal Team Six".
