You are right that generic usage results from effective brand penetration. Remember, though, the purpose of a trademark is to identify the source of goods or services. What if I am googling whether somebody is a creep by using Bing or Yahoo!, and it never occurs to me that the source of googling is the Google search engine? At some point consumers stopped associating shredded wheat with its manufacturer and applied it to any similar breakfast cereal, and the owner of the shredded wheat mark failed to adequately protect its rights in the mark. It ceased to be a trademark and became a noun that any cereal maker could use for its product.
