Advertising consultant, Cindy Gallop, reacts to the news that Disney has applied to trademark "Seal Team 6," the name of the elite unit that carried out the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound. She says she's torn between admiration for how swiftly Disney jumped in combined with "absolute horror at the idea of this" as it is "completely at odds with the way we've been appreciating the activities of Seal Team 6." Does this trademark reduce the seriousness of the brand?
Listeners have responded to the news as well.
Jason Chubb Custer Veith writes on our Facebook wall: So Disney wants to trademark "Seal Team Six." Why not? The way this Country is headed it will not be too long until our entire Government is run by corporations anyway.

Cindy is the creator of the website “Make Love Not Porn" and the author of “Make Love, Not Porn: Technology's Hardcore Impact on Human Behavior.”

The rainbow and the rainbow flag have represented LGBT issues and gay rights since the 1970s. But now a group is saying it wants that to stop. The leader of a National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has asked opponents of marriage equality to reclaim the symbol from "the gay lobby," saying that the rainbow is "a sign of God's covenant with man." But can anyone really take ownership of a group of colors?

Smokers going to buy a pack of cigarettes will soon be greeted with a warning label containing graphic images of dead bodies, blackened organs and women crying. As of 2011, the Food and Drug Administration will require cigarette packs and ads to show more detailed images of the consequences of smoking, and 36 images (pdf) (some of them fairly graphic) have been approved. But how effective will this approach be in preventing smokers from lighting up?
