There are many “house hold” names nowadays, like Beyoncé, Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, Angelina Jolie, the list goes on, but should these names be copyright protected? It’s a new concern facing family of murder victim and hoodie fanatic Trayvon Martin.
According to applications filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office, the phrases “I am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon” were submitted the family’s attorney confirmed last week.
Fulton plans on using the slogans for DVDs and CDs memorializing the murdered teenager.
Many critics believe the mother’s attempt to capitalize on her son’s death is in bad taste, but Trayvon’s name has been appearing on t-shirts and hoodies across America.
When you hear someone spends thousands and thousands of dollars on a newborn, your heart maybe be warmed and your eyes may turn a tad green, but what happens when all that “love and devotion” causes harm to other families? The New York State Health Department is ‘probing’ into the alleged mistreatment of families due to lack of resources at the hospital in which Beyonce gave birth?
“We have received complaints,” said Peter Constantakes, a spokesman for the state Health Department. “Whenever we receive a complaint, we look into it. It’s not necessarily an investigation. It could be a review. Most likely in this case, it would be an investigation.”
He declined to discuss specifics of the complaints, but at least two families have told the Daily News that they weren’t able to visit newborns in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit because burly men who appeared to be security guards barred them from gaining access to that section of the hospital.
Sorry Beyonce, some women just shouldn’t “Run the World.” Republican Presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann recently made statements vowing to put a full ban on pornography and gay marriage, as well as requiring fidelity between spouses.
