Rejected b/c of a trademark

My ad was rejected due to a trademark violation. According to the report, the violation was the word "content." Is this word trademarked or is it an error on Google's end? Please help. Thanks

Hi Andrew,

 

I am not 100% sure because trademarks are country specific and the word content may have different meanings in different languages. However, chances are it was disapproved by an algorithm in error. I'd file an exception request here:

 

http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/request.py?contact_type=approvals

 

Complete the online form while you are logged in your AdWords account. A human will revise your case.

 

Best,

Lakatos
