Filipino Yellow Pages, Inc. (FYP) (plaintiff) published a directory called the Filipino Yellow Pages. A competitor, Asian Journal Publications, Inc. (AJP) (defendant) published a directory called the Filipino Consumer Directory, but sometimes referred to its directory as the “Filipino Consumer Yellow Pages” in print advertisements. FYP sued AJP for trademark infringement and unfair competitions. AJP moved for summary judgment, arguing that the term “Filipino Yellow Pages” was generic and therefore not protectable under trademark laws. The district court granted AJP’s motion. FYP appealed.
