Contrast ShoddyKnockoffProduct (actually trying to rip people off with names similar to brand names) and ProductPlacement (when the real product name is used extensively due to an endorsement deal with the company in question). When this is done to non-products (such as a company, organization, or concept), then it's a FictionalCounterpart. See also BrandX, when generic names are used, and ProductDisplacement, for when brand names are blocked out, blurred, or otherwise redacted.
