Ad disapproved for trademarked term: Mediator

"Mediator" cannot possibly be a trademarked term.  It is a description of services that I offer, same as "lawyer" or "teacher."  What do I have to do to get this ad approved without risking suspension?

Hi Rackham,

 

Thank you for your posting. Could you give us more context on the use of "Mediator" in your ad? Can you post a sample of the ad for us to review? I agree that its unlikely the use of "Mediator" in the ad text would cause a trademark violation. However I would like to see the ad before I can make a real evalation from an Adwords perspective.

Hello;

As JP mentioned, we need to see the context of the "Mediator" in your ad;

However; searching the "Us trade names database," you would see that the term is registered for many types of businesses.

Sure thing. I am a divorce mediator. The text of my ad is: "Divorce Mediator / Respectful Divorce Solutions / Free In-Person Consultation."
