<!-- CLOSE: #story_header -->SAN FRANCISCO -- The Walt Disney Co. has applied for a trademark on the name "Seal Team 6," the name of the unit of specially trained Navy SEALs that killed Osama bin Laden in a raid in Pakistan earlier this month.

Three applications filed May 3 - the day after the raid - with the U.S.
Patent and Trademark office by Disney Enterprises Inc. state an intention to use the mark for a range of products, including entertainment and education services, clothing, toys, games and Christmas stockings.

Companies have tried to trademark combat-related terms before. A day after U.S. allied forces entered Iraq in 2003, Sony Corp. applied to trademark the war's catchphrase, "shock and awe," for use as the title of a video game. The application was later abandoned.

If anyone should be able to profit from that name it should be the US govt. and/or SealTeam6. Seal Team 6 should also be free to plunder the south seas and retain all treasure it seized from Somalian pirates. I'm just sayin....

Now we just have to figure out which group of 13 and 14 year old whores they're going to slut up and call Seal Team 6.

No, I bet it's going to be a group of actual seals. Like The Doberman Gang. Except fighting bad guys instead of robbing banks.
