A non-distinctive sign (that, therefore, cannot be protected as a trademark) can become valid and registered due to its use and the communication activity, acquiring indeed the so-called “secondary meaning”. This phenomenon allows over time a descriptive and commonly used expression to take on a further meaning – a “secondary” meaning  – endowed with the ability to distinguish that product and/or service with respect to other products on the market.
