Process by which trademark rights are lost when product's trade name is applied to all such products of similar construction, function or formulation. Exs.: "aspirin" (once a trademark of some Bayer company for salicylic-based pain reliever); "Thermos" (once a trademark attributable to a single source of glass-lined vacuum bottles). See also: "internet" (term for "global computer network" which USPTO does not permit to be used to in description of applicant's proposed product or service).
