A symbol/term that is not inherently distinctive is entitled to legal protection only if the symbol/term acquires a secondary meaning that distinguishes the goods/services it represents from the goods/services of another
A symbol/term acquires a secondary meaning when it has been used in such a way that its primary significance in the minds of the prospective purchasers is not the product/service itself, but the identification of the product/service with a single source.
