Alright. Let me first state that I'm fine with copyright laws. I don't care that Disney has kept Mickey under rights for years since he was created. Well, I do actually, but that's gonna get me off my rocker even more. My main problem for this thread is Disney trying to trademark a Gov't sector!The Wall Street Journal posted a storyabout Disney backing out of a trademark for SEAL team 6, the team that took down bin Laden. Stating that the trademark went so far as for "toys, [board] games, and snow globes"!! Please! Tell me I'm not loosing my faith in Disney. No, it's not my religion, but just a state of mind that Disney isn't completely crazy. Who thought they were in there right mind that they could trademark that! Sure, Electronic Arts (EA) tried to trademark Medal Of Honor. Yeah, they stated it was for video game media on cd/dvd discs. It's still creepy! Disney wanted the trademark to be able to sell t-shirts and other like merchandise for celebration. O.K. you can sell the merchandise, but you don't have to trademark the bloody thing!
Now, I realize I've used enough exclamation points. I'm gonna try to cool down and I'd like to hear your thoughts. Or, please try to show that this really was complete human waste. I don't want to just see slander on the source's part, I've done enough of that in my time. I'd just like to see more info that makes this easily disregarded.
Thoughts, info, opinions. Please post.
