Mother Wants To Trademark Trayvon Phrases
Sabrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.
You might think a truly grieving mother would have better things to do than to try to trademark phrases with your late son’s name in them… especially since the trademark applications weren’t cheap:
The March 21 USPTO applications, each of which cost $325, were filed by an Orlando, Florida law firm representing Fulton.
But I guess if you want to make a whole new lifestyle based on one tragic incident, like some race-baiters have done in the past, it seems like a good way to invest $650.
