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
