Trayvon Martin – Trademark update

At the end of my post regarding the trademark registration applications that Trayvon’s mother filed, I stated that I had “not seen any statements regarding the intent behind these trademark applications.”

Today, I found a report from Radar Online that the intent behind the applications was in fact to prevent others from profiting.  The quote, attributed to the family’s attorney, states: “Trayvon’s parents will never seek to financially profit from these trademarks, period. I can’t emphasize that point enough.”  Source.

I also checked the status of the applications today, and a preliminary amendment was filed in both applications to correct the misspelling of Trayvon’s mother’s name.
