MoveOn.org is quite savvy online and has a large marketing budget. They protect their trademarked term too. So when campaign ads for Republican Senator Susan Collins used their trademarked name, they had the ads removed. Google told FOX News on Friday that it wasn’t politics, but their trademark bidding policy that was the issue. Google will pull ads (Google AdWords) on trademarked terms if the trademark owner complains.
Lance Dutson, the internet marketer for Collins campaign thinks Google is being unfair. He’s not arguing Google policy, he thinks his small advertising budget shouldn’t be shut down.
