    You can rank for any brand keyword, but you cant have the brand in the domain, if you do, you are risking losing everything if they send a C&D. No one allows you to use their brand in a domain, but some don't take the time to send a C&D letter until you cost them money (start taking their traffic).

    SO as long my domain name is a general name (no brand included) I can use the brand as my keyword in meta title and etc ? Is it correct?

    Yes - as long as it's not in the domain, you're good.

    Actually your questions is very good because it opens a door which is not very exploited in this moment: focusing on long tail brand related keywords :)
