how to get a trademark depends on a specific country's laws --
for the u.s., trademarks are via the department-of-commerce:
http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/

if any advertiser or their website seems to show signs
of any unfair practices or violating any adwords-policy --
including violating trademarks -- simply file a complaint
using the following form:
https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/feedback

google specialists will evaluate each complaint
and appropriate action will be taken if required.

additional details concerning trademarks and ad-copy should be here:
