Kiss of death for Adwords
I am a trademark owner and I pay Google for Adwords. Do I understand this correctly - anybody can now use my trademark in a Google ad regardless of what their site is peddling. Is that right?
Trademarks, hallmarks, standards, weights and measures all simplify and expedite commerce in the civilized world. Its hard to understand this decision by Google - I am sure they don't like policing trademarks but they are biting the hand that feeds them and turning Adwords into junk.
I mentioned the Louis Vuitton example to my wife and without missing a beat she said "Kiss of Death" - I looked at her and she added "for Google".
