My name is Fabio and I'm partner and Business Manager of www.basiliko.net, an italian digital agency focused on Magento tech. We have 4 Magento certifications in our agency and we would like to improve our Magento business. To do that we work a lato with AdWords ads. But actually isn't possible to use Magento brand in our ads. Seem only partner can use it (Maybe not but I didn't receive any answer from Magento about it).
Maybe possible to understand how to require the possibility of using the trademarks Magento in our AdWords Ads?
I hope it's possible, otherwise, considering that the selection to become Magento partner isn't very clear, is a complete failure of Magento growth in italian market.
You are correct as I understand, you are not able to use the term Magento in adwords as it is copyrighted. I have heard that partners can get permission but like you say, even then it isn't guaranteed. I don't think there's away around this.
