Disney Withdraws Trademark Application to "SEAL Team 6"

It is a wise decision on a very bad move.

Disney withdrew its application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to use the "SEAL Team 6" name.

I also don't quite buy the "explanation" give for the initial move to trademark the phrase:

Disney's intentions were misunderstood, according to a person familiar with the entertainment company's plans. Disney, which owns the ABC television network, is considering a TV show about the elite squad, similar to other fictional dramas about real-life arms of the military, such as "NCIS" and "JAG."

I don't buy it because of the timing. It JUST happened that they want to trademark it after the Bin Laden killing? Really? What an amazing coincidence!
