Hello,
I have a client that has competitors selling tickets on there behalf. If I were to get my client to Trademark their name, would this stop the other ticket providers from selling these tickets?

Also are competitors allowed to use Trademark names in the Ad Copy/ Display URL?

Thanks, Deborah

Hi @Deborah H,

 

If the brand is a trademark then competitors can not use the brand name in the ads/display url though they can use in their keywords.
