We collect possible trademark that become generalised in three ways.
- Firstly we have a historical collection of genericides, dating back to 2002. These were encountered by the founders of the website, listed in a spreadsheet.
- Secondly, since 2016, we have scoured the internet for examples of genericides. We have mainly used social media like Twitter, Reddit;
- Thirdly, we made contact with different already existing lists, and have been importing them into our website.
