Secondary meaning

Secondary meaning arises when; overtime consumers start to identify a trademark with a specific product. For example, the name CHSP STICK for lip balm was originally considered to be descriptive, dn thus not afforded trademark protection. As people started to think of CHAP STICK as lip balm, it met the threshold of secondary meaning and was able to be trademarked.
