Disney steals Seals?

Source: link to
Just recently Disney Enterprises Inc. claimed right on the "SEAL TEAM 6". Information about Team 6 of Navy Seals raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan has been released on May 1, 2011. Disney filled applications on... May 3rd.

Disney’s trademark applications for Clothing, footwear and headwear, toys, games and playthings; gymnastic and sporting articles (except clothing); hand-held units for playing electronic games other than those adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor; Christmas stockings; Christmas tree ornaments and decorations; snow globes. Wow, sounds strange...

Disney's action is the perfect example of unjustified desire to profit from the other people achievements.  I'm curious if the TM will pass the United States Patent and Trademark Office, but at least in most European countries it would be declined... 

Huffington Post commented on this saying: It remains to be seen what products will come of these trademarks, but the bin Laden raid video game and pajama set has to be just around the corner.
