Am i allowed to name brand name products even though they're not Amazon-related? Thanks everyone for responding in a quick manner, I appreciate everyone's help!
Yes you are allowed to use brand names for products.
You do want to avoid writing hubs that are too spammy, but I am sure you read the blog post and the forum posts about the new rules for that.
Yes, it is ok to discuss brand names in your Hubs. As Millionaire Tips mentions, be sure to follow our product and spam guidelines. But there are certainly many instances where mentioning products or brands by name can be very useful and helpful to your readers.
maryjenga11 - I am not positive, but there is information on your question, here:
The information is a couple of years old, but should be accurate. Hopefully, one of the "long-time-Hubbers" will respond, if it is not.
How about HP just turn into an Ezine Articles site. This way there aren't any products at all. Then people can continue to write in poor English, lousy grammar, put up hubs with nothing but the same picture repeated over and over, or a sentence or two that is repeated over and over and over, the plagiarized content, and so on. Afterall, this kind of crap isn't a problem on HP, and it isn't spammy.
So happy I moved my hubs. It will be Halloween here now with the witch hunts!!! Love the sales coming in and the commission is all mine.

I was reading a blog on monetizing adsense and the writer mentioned that you could lose both your Google Adsense and your blog if you put brand names into the title, because then you'd be driving traffic to your blog on the tails of someone elses trademark. Is that true or was he misinformed...

I need a little help on the guidelines of mentioning specific products in an article. I am new at this and I don't really get how that works. For example, if I'm writing an article about cooking and it requires a crock pot do I mention or can I mention the brand I use at home?

You get so many websites with brand names in their domain names,specially in exact keyword matches. [ for example, bestrolexwatches.com (imaginary example)]. What about the copyright implications for these websites?Has any of the hubbers got such such a domain name/website anytime?

There were two products that my father-in-law loved, BFI Power and Dr. Tichenor's. I would like to publish a hub about our experiences with him and those two products. What are the guidelines about using brand names? I have no desire to either help or hurt either product, but it's...

Does any body know how hubpages and/or adsense feels about brand names in articles? In ones that are light on the reviews, but long on the sales (ie. 10 things to buy her for Valentine's day), if you are linking on amazon or ebay to, say, Godiva Chocolate, or a Kindle, would you have to use some...

Brand names have lost all of their original meaning, I am considering buying a "Whirlpool" refrigerator. I alredy have a "Frigidare" kitchen range. and a "Hotpoint" clothes washer. There's already an Apple TV. Now I am waiting to see the Microsoft microwave.
