"Sony Trademark Takes a Walk, Man"
International trademark laws are a big headache; when is a word a brand, and when is it so well-accepted that it actually describes a family of products, not only from one supplier? In France, a "Bic" sometimes means a pen of any brand, in Luxembourg, a "Bring your K-Way" means bring your raincoat, not necessarily of that brand... Now, officially, a walkman isn't necessarily made by Sony (in Austria)...
