Stricter Trademark Enforcement?
Curious if anyone is getting hit harder?

I went years without trademark problems. My ads would be "approved limited" and run with whatever trademarks were present in the ad text. This is for United States traffic and my site qualifies under adwords TOS for displaying trademarks in ads.

Within the last month, I have been hit by huge trademark restrictions. I haven't seen this type of enforcement since Google won that trademark judgement a few years ago. (sorry, don't remember the specifics of the court case)

I am curious, has anyone else been hit really hard by the trademark ad denials, starting about 3-4 weeks ago?

I can get the ads approved via support, but it is an incredibly painful and drawn out process.
