Letter: Disney buying trademark is a bit goofy

Published:

 

Regarding the May 17 story, “Disney seeks trademark for ‘ Seal Team 6’ name,” has The Walt Disney Co. gone goofy? How can Disney think that exploiting the use of our United States Navy’s historic Seal Team 6 name is a moral thing to do? Can’t Disney sell enough of its own branded products without thinking it’s OK to use “Seal Team 6” as their own trademark to make more money?

Disney has lost two of the greatest American values we have. Respect and dignity. It almost makes me think that they are right up there with the greedy people of Wall Street that fleeced the American people. I hope the U.S. Patent and Trademark office thinks twice before they make their decision on Disney’s request.
