Google's recent decision to change its AdWords policy in the UK and allow advertisers to bid for trademarked keywords has ruffled more than a few feathers among marketers.

Digital has changed all that - we need to redraw the line.

Google's agency subsidy - how badly will it be missed?

Here in Europe, agencies have enjoyed funding from Google. It was there to encourage training and innovation. It's going.
