The entertainment company stepped back after the Navy moved to protect the naming rights for the unit of elite operatives that killed terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Glad they came to their senses (or rather were scared by the Navy stepping up).

You can’t make stuff this funny up… but its true:

They have 3 separate trademarks on it actually, in the following goods and services categories:

  1. Clothing, footwear and headwear (#85310957)
  2. Entertainment and education services (#85310970)
  3. Toys, games and playthings; gymnastic and sporting articles (except clothing); hand-held units for playing electronic games other than those adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor; Christmas stockings; Christmas tree ornaments and decorations; snow globes (#85310966)

I don’t know about you guys, but I for one welcome the “Osama Bin Laden Is Dead” snowglobe. I hear that in the prototype he’s laying on the bottom of it with a hole in his ceramic head and there are red pieces in there that float around with the snow when you shake it.  Also, rumor has it there is no water in the globe, only bacon grease.

As some of you know, Dick Swan from A.R.M.S is suing LaRue Tactical

“for using the numerals 1 and 7 in our LT-170 mount part number. He filed for and last spring outrageously got a trademark on “#17″ and then he sued us.”

In that AR15.com thread, Mark Larue generously offered to replace ANY broken A.R.M.S. mount with a comparable mount of his own.  FOR FREE!

I thought that was just plain awesome.. but it gets better.

We are hereby offering to replace any A.R.M.S. mount that the owner intentionally breaks the M.I.M. lever off.

As you can imagine, the response is huge!

One example of awesomeness from the thread:
