*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."
