Trayvon Martin’s mother has filed two applications for trademarks of two phrases 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. Fulton is seeking the trademarks for use on digital materials such as CDs and DVDs featuring “Trayvon Martin” as well as other products.
Each USPTO application cost $325 and were filed by an Orlando, Florida law firm representing Fulton.
Martin, 17, was shot to death last month by self appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman. Martin was walking to his father’s home in Sanford, Florida when he was confronted by Zimmerman after Zimmerman followed him and called 911 reporting the teen for what he described as suspicious behavior. Zimmerman claims that Martin attacked him and he shot him in self-defense.
