The adwords/trademark issue on Google has seen its day in court.

Kind of interesting:

 Speaking of Google..
 I had the unfortunate fortune of working on an ad campaign recently.
It brought to the fore many questions.. some of them were about this.

 If I put an adword on "symantec", don't I breach their trademark, or
Google does?

 I doubt anyone would sue Google to find out, or be in courts for so
long it won't matter any longer.

 Annoying, but works both ways.
