For me there's a few:

RePet (The 6th Day): While a funny concept, I find it even a funnier front for the human cloning.

Regenerate (Resident Evil: Apocalypse): The trailer says it all... (link to trailer)

ALthough I haven't seen the movie yet, Envy will feature a product called "Vapoorizer." It's for getting rid of dog poo.

Cyrez Corporation - Eraser

The original name of the company was Cyrex. Well, some clearance dumbarse at WB didn't check to see that it was the name of a character in Mortal Kombat and a suit wasbrought against them after the film wrapped shooting. In post, all logos of Cyrex was digitally altered to Cyrez as well as anytime someone mentioned Cyrex, it was changed to Cyrez without the original actors having to re-record their lines.

Anyways, they made those stupid rail guns.

I thought this was the reason:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116213/trivia
The company name "Cyrez" was originally "Cyrex", but the real-life company Cyrix complained. The movie had been shot, but all dialogue was dubbed and company logos were digitally altered during postproduction.
