Disney trademarks “SEAL Team Six” for games
Because of their involvement in the death of Osama bin Laden, SEAL Team Six has been in the news a lot lately. Considered by many to be the most elite special forces team in the entire U.S. military, it’s not surprising that they would capture the public’s interest.
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.
This actually isn’t the first time a company has held a trademark on “SEAL Team Six.” Budget publisher NovaLogic held the mark until 2006, and used it in their Delta Force series of games.
It seems unlikely that this new trademark application will lead to a Disney-produced “Raid on Osama bin Laden’s Hideout” game (the language used in the trademark application sounds more like those standalone handheld units that Tiger Electronics used to make), but stranger things have certainly happened.
