You're right, but I believe that pertains to trademarked names for common products being adopted into the vernacular. For instance, Band aid, Kleenex and Velcro. Nobody says, "sterile adhesive bandage", "facial tissue" or "hook-and-loop", yet if the brands weren't defended, any facial tissue company could start marketing Kleenexes, because it's the common term for the product.

It is dissenting data, doofus. This is because it flies in the face of the bullshit claims made by the alarmists that the polar ice caps would be melted by now. And, it's dissenting data, because the anonymous coward I originally responded to, who obviously prefers to suckle at the disinformational teet of the alarmists, wants to bury it.
