Good new at last. After Disney filed for the trademark of SEAL Team 6, the Navy filed for Navy SEALS and SEAL Team. Thanks to public outrage against Disney, they surrendered the trademarks to the Navy. Hopefully this means there won't be some awful reenactment movie coming up.

About time, It would just sound too weird for a family company like Disney to trademark a codename of war. I would have imagined that the Navy should've done that in the first place, considering that it was a Navy SEAL operation after all.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Good to see that they gave the rights back, I guess the negative reactions of alot of people helped to make this decision.

That Disney even tried proves that there is actually ZERO hope for humanity.

I'm glad they got this back. It really angered me that Disney of all things would get a hold of one of the most bad ass possible names for a movie due to recent events.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

I'm surprised they thought they had a shot. Everyone knows you don't fuck with the military.

I thought that the contents of government programs (other than classified material) was public domain. Since the tax payers fund those programs.

I still wonder why the fuck Disney wanted the rights to it in the first place.

I would imagine that they shouldn't have to... ever. Clearly the Navy had the name "Seal Team 6" first... why Disney thinks they can come in, steal the name, and make it theirs I have no idea.

I thought you owned something the moment you came up with it... the problem is being able to prove you came up with it first... thus patents and trademarks. But in this case, it's clear the Navy had it first so it should automatically belong to them.

Really... what the fuck does Disney want with a Navy Seal Team? The straight to DVD release of Bambi 7 is going to be some fucked up shit.

Disney is smart not to fuck with the guys who train every day to go and carry out the most dangerous missions we can think up for them.

I personally think that special operational forces detachment delta is better when it comes to anti-terrorism/insurgency matters.

My guess would be that the Navy didn't get the chance to copyright the name Seal Team 6 because they didn't know 100% that Bin Laden was there, {and luckily he was there.} And by the time that they could celebrate, Disney swoop in and took the name. Until someone copyrights a name of a group or a person, then it is technically under public domain, I think.

Really... what the fuck does Disney want with a Navy Seal Team? The straight to DVD release of Bambi 7 is going to be some fucked up shit.

I would imagine that they would make Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy as Navy SEALs going to Pakistan and finding Pete Bin Laden, and it would really be fucked up for sure.
