I used the same keywords and sell the same product as my competitors on google. They currently have adwords running and are at the top of all the keyword searches. This is legally not ok to allow my competitors to sell on google and not me! Besides a lawsuit what else can I do?

Hi Jake

First in Google any one can bid for any keyword so there is no way to restrict your competitors bidding on your keywords. But if your competitors use one of your trademark in their ad text you can take actions against it and restrict the usage.

Please read below about trademark policy

If your ad is disapproved but if u can find out the reason please go to ad status bubble and point there. You should be able to see the disapproval reason there
