Trayvon Martin's mother wants to trademark his name3/27/2012
Trayvon Martin is already a household name and now the mother of the slain teenager wants to trademark it. Sybrina Fulton filed applications last week with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that would trademark two slogans associated with the 17-year-old: "I Am Trayvon," and "Justice for Trayvon." The papers filed show that the mother wants the trademarks so the phrases can be used on "digital materials," meaning CDs and DVDs. An attorney representing Fulton tells the AP that the trademarks will be used on "projects that will assist other families who experience similar tragedies" and that there's no profit motive.
