*Black Panther Heirs Seek Spicy Trademark*
60's historians may find proposed hot sauce hard to swallow

JULY 18--Former Black Panther associates of Huey P. Newton, the late 
co-founder of the militant organization, are seeking to trademark the 
phrase "Burn Baby Burn" so they can slap the words--long associated with 
conflagrations that left cities like Watts and Newark in cinders--on hot 
sauce. According to pending filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark 
Office (which you will find below), the Huey P. Newton Foundation also 
wants to trademark the phrase
"Revolutionary Hot Sauce." 

The Oakland-based group, which is run by Newton's widow Fredrika and 
ex-Panther David Hilliard, submitted the trademark applications late 
last year and, according to USPTO records, appears close to securing 
government approval of its requests. On the foundation's web site, the 
Newton group describes itself as a "community-based, non-profit 
research, education, and advocacy center dedicated to fostering 
progressive social change."
