    I think the quirk of the Florida law is that it's the police who make the probable cause determination (and it's probable cause that it was not self-defense, the "defendant" gets the presumption of self-defense) - it never gets to the DAs office.

    Mother Seeks Trayvon Martin Trademarks | The Smoking Gun

    "MARCH 26--The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show.

    Sabrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.

    The March 21 USPTO applications, each of which cost $325, were filed by an Orlando, Florida law firm representing Fulton.

    Martin, 17, was shot to death last month during a confrontation with George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain. Martin, pictured above, was visiting his father’s home in Sanford, Florida when he was shot to death by Zimmerman, who has claimed that he was acting in self-defense."


    Hmmm???

    I think it's totally fair for her to want to control her son's image and story.

    I guess I'm just a little bit more cynical.

    Ok, or, who else but Trayvon's parents should be able to profit from his story? People will be making money off of their loss, shouldn't it be theirs?

    Hmmm???
    Are you serious? She has to copyright it if she's in support of organizations using his image. What's to stop Westborough Baptist Church to start popping up with signs that say "I am Trayvon Martin and God Hates FAGS"

    What's to stop some white supremacist group from selling shirts or buttons or making a website "I am Trayvon Martin" to slander her son as a "drug dealer" which is already happening now btw because he smoked weed.

    She has every right to protect and secure web sites and others things that are going to appear with his name on it. And if she's trying to create a justice movement that will extend beyond her son's case, since his future is gone now, this will give her the opportunity to do so.

    Securing the name and rights is a legal issue and a very common sense thing to do. To try to spin the parents into opportunists benefiting from their son's death is just one more way the racists out there are trying to spin this and damage their reputation.

    Someone can find the trademark thing off putting, and not be a racist.


    This whole case is terrible, but the law is getting the type of scrutiny it should have always had. I hope there are some changes that come from this.

    It reads to me like you're saying if you think they may be opportunists, then you're a racist.

    This is true. It doesn't mean everyone who mentions it is a racist trying to spin the parents as opportunists. But racists out there are definitely attacking Trayvon and his parents and this is just one more way they are trying to disparage them.

    Uh yeah, I'm not a racist. But I also haven't crucified Zimmerman
    Either. (as a racist that is). I do believe that he
    may be a trigger happy maniac. But I keep hearing
    Various versions of what happened. Did Trayvon really attack him and
    Break his nose and hit him?? Who knows? But.. If crazy ass wasn't stalking him, none of this would have happened. So IMO, he should have been
    Arrested.. Period.

    And.. If this was a white family (or any other race for that matter)
    who trademarked something like this, I would
    Be just as skeptical about their intentions. Race has nothing to do with my thought process.

    Thank you WCG.

    This is a horrendous situation and I hope justice is served. Horrible
    Violence happens everywhere every day.
    But in this particular case, its the law thats concerning.. And definitely needs
    To be looked at and hopefully changed.

    Hmm witchcurlgirl seems to have edited her post differently. So my post reads as if I'm agreeing with her statement. Just to be clear laynes, I wasn't calling you a racist at all.

    the "this is true" referred to her comment where she quoted something I stated and said "you said this."
