I've been hearing all sorts of chatter that Disney wants to trademark Seal Team 6. You know, the Seal Team that took out you know who. How would you feel about something like that?

You didn't. I didn't mean to come off as aggressive, either.

It's not like it would really matter. You think the United States government won't just pull rank if push came to shove? That and how will trademarking the name even change anything for the SEALs?

If memory serves, SEAL Team 6 was used in several of Richard Marcinko's books (being the former CO of the unit this would make sense).  I could see Disney and others trying to make sure no one, including former members, cannot make money without paying them off.  This would not affect the government as, according to Wikipedia, the Navy officially changed the units designation and Team 6 is an unofficial nickname that held on despite the change.

Because a Disney killing osama is going to be a block buster, zach effron and justin bieber would make totally believable seals.

@stuamerica: "SEAL Team Six" isn't a nickname. It's the units name and then their are different units within each team.

@Mikepool

Depends on where you read.  According to 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Naval_Special_Warfare_Development_Group   
http://www.businessinsider.com/the-team-that-killed-bin-laden-seal-team-6-2011-5
(can't figure out how to get links to work properly in posts, sorry)
the official names are classified and the SEAL Team designation are unofficial and used for more open conversation.  I could be wrong, as I have no first-hand experience with the units in question myself.

@stuamerica: I've never met anyone from Six but I have met a few SEALs. Team Six is the name used but the individual units are probably what's classified. Saying SEAL team Six killed Bin Laden isn't as specific as saying "Company So-an-So of SEAL Team Six". Instead of 20+ people its now around 100 and then you have to figure which SEALs are actually team Six members.

Disney has become so terminally corporate that its high-level execs need to consult nine different spreadsheets before tying their shoes.

SEAL Team Six was disbanded in 1987 and reorganized as under Joint Special Operations Command as United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group. They are unofficial still known as SEAL Team Six, but since they fall under the operational guidance of JSOC, which means they are far separated from the other SEAL teams because those fall under Naval Special Warfare Command and USSOCOM.

So I guess technically they are no longer a SEAL Team because when President Kennedy created the Teams he wanted the Navy to have their own unique and independent operations teams that didn't fall under the same command as Green Berets, Delta Force, or Army Rangers.

And if Disney is considering trade marking Seal Team 6 I am sure its because they have a movie in the works. I doubt they'd do it just to do it.
