Re: Nifty

Good question...Why should the RIAA complain about free advertising of a song when used in a supermarket as background music.

Not even close to the same thing. A company representing another companies work is much different compared to a companies name being used in a generic manner. Another relevant example would be saying Kleenex instead of tissues.

Anyway, this is basic stuff that even wiki has info for. Here is a list of goods that are no longer legally like protected like Xerox and Kleenex.
