In January 2000, hit television drama The West Wing introduced the character Larry Claypool (portrayed by actor John Diehl), who headed the fictional organization Freedom Watch. Klayman was so pleased by his doppelganger that he subsequently registered a trademark for "Freedom Watch" and in 2008 formed a new group with the name. Its website includes a page devoted to the character Claypool.
