Does the Coca-Cola company OWN the word "Cola"?!

Question: Does the Coca-Cola company OWN the word "Cola"?
I need to know, I have this character name idea but I don't want to get into trouble with TEH LAW.


No. That would be like asking "Does Coor's light own the word Beer?" No. the word cola is just a descriptive word for a type of beverage.

No, they own "Coke" and "Coca-Cola" but not cola, Cola alone is a generic term, and thus cannot be trademarked.



no they do not
