Trayvon’s mom seeks trademark on slogans:
This will raise some eyebrows.
Sybrina Fulton, the mother of a slain Florida teen whose case has garnered national attention, has moved to trademark “I Am Trayvon Martin” and “Justice for Trayvon,” rallying slogans related to her son’s death, HLN has confirmed.
A trademark is legal symbol set up by a person/company that is used to protect them federally and by the state that insures no one else can use its’ name, phrase or color.
I would hate to think that Trayvon’s mother is jumping on the financial bandwagon to try and capitalize on her son’s death. If that is the case and I hope its not; I would assume that some shyster lawyer whispered in her ear and told her that there could be a lot of money for her somewhere down the road. What other reason would she have to trademark the slogans? That is about as low as it gets.
There is only one thing wrong with that scheme. Someone else beat Sybrina Fulton to the starting gate and trademarked already.
It never ceases to amaze me the way some people try an make a buck on other people misery.
