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 a neat story. Everything that I would say about either is good and I don't kow why either company would care, but I don't want to have problems. I would also like to include a photo of an ancient container of BFI Powder. What are anyone's thoughts? I have absolutely no affiliation with either product. I have searched for info about brand names but no come up on anything specific to a hub like this.
Appreciate any input.
Thanks for your answer. Do you or anyone else have any ideas about the photograph of the old container of BFI Powder? I know I sound paranoid, but I don't want to get anyone going.
Well, I wrote a hub about a product and took a photograph of that product. I am pretty sure it can be used under fair use, I'm sure they won't mind unless you are attacking them.

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...

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?

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?

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.
