    So I am trying to rank a keyword but it is actually a companys name it is the easiest keyword to rank for but it just won't show that I am using it in web master tools. It is a very common terms in the niche I am in(its a long tail keyword) Basically I am wondering is there more to this keyword then I know about like is it a copyrighted keyword if thats even something that can happen. I don't know if im explaining the right way. But please someone let me know if there may be another reason why I am not ranking at all for this keyword.

    Are you running a company in a duplicated name?
    Is your company name is a keyword? or any brand name?

    You can possibly get in legal trouble. It comes under (keywords-related) copyright / trademark infringement... but it's a big question on whether the TM/Copyright owner can win the case or not. Depends on how big the owner is and how far he wants to go to get you for the "crime". :)

    Google to study more on this:
    keywords copyright trademark infringement

    It depends how you use it I guess. If you use it as your brand identity then it could be copyright. If you use it in your content and rank because of it, I don't think it'd be against copyright then because you're just using it naturally.
