First post! I am hoping you guys can help me.
My company has recently managed to get our business name trademarked. Particularly due to our business's success online with SEO we found that a lot of other businesses in the industry were trying to target our websites name. As a result, I filed a complaint through to Google (more info here: https://support.goog..../2562124?hl=en)
I got the following email back from Google.
Thanks for submitting your trademark complaint.
Please note that we will not be able to process for your trademark (name excluded for now) at this time because we found descriptive references to the term in its ordinary meaning.
If you disagree with the advertiser's use of (name excluded for now), you may contact the advertiser directly to resolve the dispute.
Have you guys had any experience with something like this. How can we get google to recognise our name as a trademark and to stop people from using it?
Im a newb in this area, so all help is very much appreciated
If you need more info, let me know.
