Mark raises some good points, but I have to wonder: just how bad IS it to
have your company's name indelibly associated with a universally-used
product or process?

I can think of few companies that probably wouldn't mind if it became
common to ask for a Puffs to dry your tears as you apply a Curad to the
nasty papercut you sustained while making a Pitney Bowes in the printer
room.....
