Tactical IP has used its ever-increasing might to do right. Maybe the Navy was hinting at our role in its application (from Fox News):
For its part, the Department of the Navy also filed an application to trademark “SEAL TEAM” and “Navy SEALs” on May 13, as a “collective membership mark,” since the terms are used “to indicate membership in an organization of the Department of the Navy that develops and executes military missions involving special operations strategy, doctrine, and tactics.” (emphasis added)
It was nothing, really.
