Trademark Genericness Surveys
In cases where a trademark may have lost its distinctiveness, we conduct genericness surveys to understand the distinctiveness of the mark among an interested universe of consumers, specifically whether it is viewed as a brand name or not.
In line with legal precedent, we predominantly use either the Teflon format or Thermos format to test for genericness. In certain cases, we may ask the company that the mark is associated with.
