distinctive mark

   A trademark or service mark that is memorable because it is unusual in its context. Distinctive marks often use arbitrary terms (e.g., Penguin Books, Apple Computers) or newly coined terms (e.g., Microsoft). Such marks receive the maximum protection under state and federal laws.
