Tradmarked Words in Your Copy

Last week our proofreader at work corrected the use of the word "Xerox" in a contract. She reminded us that the word is "photocopy." It's amazing how many trademarked words have found their way into our everyday language. Common examples include Band-aid, FedEx, Kleenex, Lycra, Legos, and many others. If you would like more information on this subject, we suggest the International Trademark Association's (INTA) Trademark Checklist.
