My site runs in a competitive nichè. It provides offers for certain assets and then purchases them.
We have a landing page that targets "we want any widget"
Along with many other buying related phrases.
There is a company that has trademarked the term "we want any widget" our branding is very different but we do pretty much the same thing and have both been around the same time. Now their brand name is actually a naturally spoken keyword or phrase "we want any widget" I've received a letter from a solicitor today saying that my website is infringing law and I'm not aloud to use that phrase on my ppc campaigns or on landing pages, descriptions or page content.
Is this so? Because I could think of thousands of phrases to trademark then stop website owners using. I have no idea idea about the legalitys of it.
It just makes me think that if I registered and trademarked implants London . Then I could stop every one using implants london as a keyword. Just doesn't seem right.
