Shizz! We'll never get that SEAL Team 6 cartoon where the unit is actually made up of cute little seals like we had hoped!
Looks like Disney has pulled their trademark bid for the title of the group that eliminated Osama Bin Laden.
Why do you ask? Because of the Navy:
The Navy responded to Disney's actions by filing their own trademark paper for the terms 'SEAL Team' and 'Navy SEALs' on May 13 in order to protect itself.
The Navy claimed in the filing that the phrases denote "membership in an organization of the Department of the Navy that develops and executes military missions involving special operations strategy, doctrine, and tactics."
Disney officials said they withdrew their trademark paperwork in deference to the Navy.
Apparently Disney had wanted to use the trademark for an upcoming war-based television series, but we guess they'll just have to call the group something else.
Either way, we think it's kind of wrong to try and put a trademark on a brave group of men like that.
