Genericized trademark
or generic-etymology term, and 2 no alternative generic drug name for the tune pronto come on to mind. Most often, generalisation occurs because of heavy handbill that muck up to bush an alternative generic drug name or that enjoy the register in similar fashion to generic terms
Genericized trademark
. Thus, when the Otis Elevator Company

Genericized trademark
wrestle that attach to the use or registration of the mark, as long as the mark preserve to exclusively secernate the owner as the commercial origin of the applicable products or services. If the mark estrogen not perform this essential role and it is no someone possible to lawfully enforce wrestle in relation to the mark, the mark may have become generic.
