Abstract: If $W\colon\mathbb{R} ^n \to[0,\infty]$ is Borel measurable, define for $\sigma$-finite positive Borel measures $\mu,\nu$ on $\mathbb{R} ^n$ the bilinear integral expression

\begin{displaymath}I(W;\mu,\nu):=\int_{\mathbb{R} ^n}\int_{\mathbb{R} ^n}W(x-y)\,d\mu(x)\,d\nu(y)\;. \end{displaymath}

We give conditions on $W$ such that there is a constant $C\ge0$, independent of $\mu$ and $\nu$, with

\begin{displaymath}I(W;\mu,\nu)\le C\sqrt{I(W;\mu,\mu)I(W;\nu,\nu)}\;. \end{displaymath}

Our results apply to a much larger class of functions $W$ than known before.
