    Hey guys, have a quick question. Are certain keywords protected by companies? For example, if I have an eCommerce store, would I be able to advertise under the keywords or say "Nike" or "Adidas"? The reason why I ask is because I see very few if any Adword ads for those key terms.

    Yeah, some companies have contacted Google and their trademark cannot be used since they own it. A lot of companies haven't, but I'm pretty sure Nike has (with all those replica Nike eCommerce stores running rampant).

    Edit: Are you running a replica Nike eCommerce store? :p
