A medical company would not be allowed the trademark 'medical'.

It is against trademark law and unfair competition law.

It would be like DuPont fraudulantly claiming 'science' as their trademark to get 'science.info' - it is against the law.

Which is why any generic words taken by a trademark during sunrise cannot show the product or services that the word would imply.
