I am allowed to terms like that on Google and/or Yahoo? I'm not directly selling the product.

Your answer is wrong for the US, though it may be correct in the UK/EU.
Trademark isn't carte blanche to prevent all use of corporate names. There is such a thing as "fair use," as has been detailed in some excellent sessions with various legal experts weighing in at conferences like ad:tech and SES.

I understood Google to have taken action with regard unfair use of trademarks?

To EWC21, : If something is too generic (ie windows) then of course it is looked at differently, that is to say that window manufacturer MUST use the word windows in his advertising, I am not sure but I think this is a limited trademark (I have a guy on my rugby forum who works at the UK patent office dealing in trademarks, so will ask him for clarification.

Most merchants would not allow their affiliates to bid on those keywords (from my experience). However, one way many affiliates go about is by bidding on their competitors keyword, since they aren't answerable to their competitors. LOL.
Which comes back to the original question. What are the legalities in trademark bidding. So far from what most gather, it is illegal and an absolute no-no in UK. In the US however......

Hmm.... Who is to say what's right and what's wrong? Rules can be set, and so can laws be passed. When it comes to this issue in the US, it's pretty much a grey area to my knowledge.
Good or bad? Well, it all boils down to one's perspective!
