A generic name—the name of a class of products or services—is ineligible for federal trademark registration. However, when the generic name is combined with a generic a generic Internet-domain name suffix like “.com,” the combined “generic.com” name is generic and ineligible for trademark protection only if the combined term, taken as a whole signifies a class of goods or services to the general public.  Since only one entity can occupy a particular Internet domain name at a time, so a “generic.com” term may convey to consumers an association with a particular website.
