Yes Disney Is Trying To Trademark The Words 'Dia De Los Muertos,' Because It Is Not Like Anyone Else Is Using Them


What, Disney is trying to trademark the name of an entire holiday? Why, in fact, it is! See, they are going to be making a Pixar movie about Dia de los Muertos (yay!) (we hope Tim Burton is directing, because he has sort of made Dia de los Muertos like five times already) and so are trying to claim the entire name "Dia de los Muertos" (booooo-urns!). But maybe they are trying to trademark the stylized logo? No, mijo, just the "standard character mark." Is this a bunch of bullshit? Si, claro! But it's okay. It is just happening to Messicans.

So Disney is trying to trademark the words "Dia de los Muertos" so it can sell your children Dia de Los Muertos fruit roll-ups, and Dia de los Muertos lunchbominations, and Dia de los Muertos

chewing gum; breakfast cereals and preparations made from cereals; cereal bars; bread; muffins; muffin bars; pastry; waffles; pancakes; cookies; crackers; biscuits; popcorn; corn chips; pretzels; puddings; coffee; tea; cocoa; sugar; rice; flour; ices; ice; honey; condiments; sauces; spices; pizza; pasta and noodles; macaroni and cheese; frozen meals consisting primarily of pasta or rice; staple foods; cosmetics; dentifrices; non-medicated toiletries; fragrances; perfumes

etc., etc. It turns out there are a FUCKLOAD of things you can put shit on, and people will buy them. Like coffee cups. And tote bags. And panties with scary monsters on them.

We are frankly surprised Disney has not tried to trademark the words Easter, Halloween, Rosh Hashanna and Eid, but those are not Mexican holidays, so fuck it.
