Hello, last few months I wasn't able to use any trademarked brand in my ads and just recently I found out, that Google is no longer against it.

Is it me or this just got secretely updated? LINK

Yes, Google will not restrict the use of your trademark in AdWords text ads unless you submit a valid complaint, so maybe the trademarks you tried to use, their owners have already filed complaints about the use of their trademarks.

But this is new right? I think few weeks ago the rules about trademark policy were different.

Hi Alex,

 

The Policy Change Log is here: http://goo.gl/YXyn0G . If you scroll down, you'll see an update to the Trademark Policy for certain countries. If you are located in any of those countries, you might have noticed a change. Apart from that, I don't think there have been any major changes to the Trademark Policy. 

 

I hope this helps!
