Wouldn't you trademark your child's name if you were attempting to honor their memory by creating a fund or a production line in their name?
Maybe the proceeds will go toward helping people like him, or their families.
That's around 75% of the African-American population.
Trayvon was not a minority in how he behaved

Yoko Ono trademarked John Lennon's name. This is no different than that.

OK here goes, its been a month now of morning. You americans seem to live by the GUN and die by the GUN. Here we have George Zimmerman claiming to have killed Travyon Martin in self defence! and its claimed that by Travyon Martin's parents that it was unlawful killing ?. OK heres my 10p worth. On here 'ATS' there are other threads and ones that include Police recordings of the phone calls involved.
Now, taking all in to account if Zimmerman was intentionally out to kill a young man, then calling the police first before killing is calculating. Now what if Zimmerman was actually following Martin because really he did feel that he had to protect his neighbourhood, hell man Ive done the same here where I live in the UK minus a GUN for protection and been attacked by the so called innocent one.
From the other treads it shows a Travyon Martin as a innocent young teen and some pictures even show him as a toddler but not Zimmerman, the pictures that have been put up as Zimmerman are showing him as a adult ( and a prisoner looking one at that) hows that fair. We need to see what both parties look like as of the day of the shooting not as they were . also the weight mentioned (200lb) I guess is a heavy weight. ? not on the basis of the photo of Martin. it looks like he isnt heavy enough to fight another teenager.
So the out come of this all. I guess martin was killed by mis-adverture by a over-excited Neighbourhood Watch Guy who just happened to come across a mis-guided teenager who happened to have a Drugs bag in his possession, Which I guess is normal in the USA as per ATS forums again.
So lets see some real stuff on here and not racially, Media agism aggrivated speal. Too much sensatiallism. For which the other community can cream off.. sorry for the harsh mis-spelled rant. hey ho

This kid probably did not deserve to die over this situation however the black racists are stinking this whole thing up and milking this for all it is worth. I was watching a news program and some racist women as saying he was a young child like he was 10 or 12. It's beginning to sound like the OJ case the black racists will lie and do what ever they can to try and vilify whitey so to speak and this shooter was not even white... Sounds like the mom is jumping on the band wagon too... Sigh.
