Hi Daanish, 

 

Thanks for checking on this. Google does not allow advertising any kind of copyrighted content. If you still would like to, you need to get legal authorization to advertise and/or reproduce that content. 

 

Here's more about AdWords policy on copyrighted content.

 

Hope that helps,

Mini

Hi Daanish,

I agree with Mini on this. If you do not own the copyright and are looking to use a brand or products copyrighted material, you will be penalized for it.

You need legal authorization and consent to go ahead with this plan. Do give Mini's link a read and let us know if we can help you out with anything else.

Cheers!
