Porn played over Target store loudspeakers

I suspect it’s some prankster who was using one of the phones on the floor to access the PA system.

What’s really odd is the Target in my town NEVER has music playing. Being used to bland Muzak whenever I am in a store… it’s downright creepy going to the Target here.

Muzak (capital M) is a copyrighted brand name. It is not to be used generically.

I suppose you feel the same way about Kleenex, Skillsaw, and Tums, huh?

Nobody’s getting confused here when I say “muzak” meaning boring background music designed mostly just to fill silence.

What I feel isn’t the issue. I stated a fact. The only one confused here is you. And the other names you mentioned are registered names as well. Or don’t you know what that little R in the circle means?

I’m saying that trademarks often become common parlance as generic identifiers, no matter that the trademark itself has remained valid. It’s just easier to say Kleenex instead of “unbranded soft nasal tissues”, and it’s easier to say muzak instead of “bland inoffensive backround music played in stores restaurants and public places”.
