I'm not sure if it's different enough from Bland-Name Product
, but it seems to be about the same, only about corporations rather than products. It also seems to be (supposedly; I've not looked at the examples) when you need to tailor it to suit the show's needs, which makes it part Bland-Name Product
(which is just disguised to make it different), part original (for the purposes of the plot).
Either way, both are subtropes to Brand X
