When I opened my google adwords account this morning… I was suprised:
9 of 10 variations of my published ads for iPhone apps, were declined.
Why? These 9 ads contain the word “iPhone”- and if I use it, I infringe Apple’s trademark rights.
The thing is: I already activated them one week ago!! No restrictions happened within these days. And: they “worked” really well…
The keywords are not restricted yet. But.. who knows what Apple tries to interdict tomorrow.
Why does Apple always needs to control anything? And often in a very nonproductive way… Foremost we don’t harm them with these ads. Far from it!! If we campaign for iPhone apps in a serious way, it shows that their product is popular, that companies are interested in… It could be so easy..
But hej: Did anyone of you discovered anything about this topic in the web? (blogs, news, …)
If yes, please let me know!!
