Re: Generic?

Some ways to protect your name 100%, e.g. weather.com. :p

1. Make sure your site doesn't earn any money - Non-profit.
2. Register a charity using that generic, e.g. Weather Children's Charity - Establishing a trademark.
3. Register a trademark for "Weather Children's Charity" - Officially establishing a trademark.
4. Arrange a promotion to raise funds for , and make sure the event is publicized on major newspapers - Establishing trademark by usage.
