I don't get what you are saying skibum.
1. I think the policy is clear enough compared to the other PPC suppliers - just not policed with an assumption of guilt any more (which was killing the system)
2. Google DOES screw up regularly - even when a DCMA notice is filled out by the TM owner. It also starts with the same default as Microsoft is now doing, but with far more hoops for the TM owner to jump through.
3. It's not that they are not flagging accounts approved by the TM Owner, they indeed say they will support the trademark owners in protecting their TM.
