    What about the use of things from the point of view of accuracy? Say you are shooting a movie about a historical figure who drank coke all the time, would you claim education? Or what if you wanted to depict the US military driving around in their Hummers, would you need permission to show that from hummer?

    Something I’m wondering about are these corporations letting stuff fly under the radar when they could sue, isn’t that a problem bc if they end it up suing someone else, the party being sued could use those times they let it fly under the radar as an example and win. Ferrari usually does that, they are super annoying when it comes to their brand and sometimes sue just for safety for the future.

    Using a product in a TV show is definitely not a violation of copyright. Cheesecake Factory doesn't have a copyright on their name. They have a trademark. You couldn't open a restaurant called Cheesecake Factory or something too close to that in a manner that confuses people. But you could definitely have your characters go to a Cheesecake Factory or McDonald's in your TV show and not owe them a dime.

    Hi Lindsay. I like your content and I appreciate the message of the video but I think it would have been punchier without the usual sponsorship. I understand you got bills to pay, we're all slaves to capitalism, I don't blame you, but ultimately it does undermine the work a little. I also don't think it's likely you'll read this comment at all, but on the off chance that you do, well, there it is. Still a big fan!

    I'm glad you made this. I've been trying to understand copyright and fair use--there's explanation on the internet but it only goes so far. So even if you're using a copyright for something that's not for profit, if it's not under fair use, it's still illegal right? Or does it not matter?

    "and also I was bad at my job" At first I was kind of skeptical about this channel, but I'd had so many recommendations (from people not bots), and I so badly wanted another creator to watch, that I decided to give this video a try (it was the first one that popped out to me in a list). This joke, this is what made me stay

    One of the first movies to feature product placement was one of the last Marx Brothers movies. The film was running out of money, so Harpo sold advertising space in the movie. They made it work. It's a scene where they are running around on rooftops and there's these billboards all around, so it makes sense they'd be there. Another early one actually didn't go to funding the movie but rather one of the stars. Sid James often played alcoholics, so he would make deals with certain manufacturers so that he would make sure the label was facing the camera every time and they'd give him money...and I'm pretty sure he got to keep the booze too.

    I didn't even know The Cheesecake Factory was a real thing until I went to the USA in 2016 and a friend took me to one for lunch one day. I just assumed that specific one didn't look like the one in The Big Bang Theory and had different uniforms, but I guess it's not an accurate representation of the brand at all. Then again, that show had a hard enough time staying accurate to itself a lot of the time.

    The best product placement I ever saw was in Warehouse 13. They clearly knew it would piss people off so they made a total joke of it. They essentially looked down the lens of the camera and winked at the audience.

    i always thought that was the reason too. the shows don't want to "advertise" brands for free, or even worse, advertise brands that are rivals to those paying them. In a lot of East Asian variety/reality shows you'd see most of the screen blurred around the people the camera is following. Them going to the grocery store is basically a 95% blurred screen xD

    Ah the hummer h2. If you want to know what it's like to be in a vehicle that is simultaneously massive on the outside and cramped as hell on the inside then look no further. To it's credit, it's actually a pretty capable 4x4 (contrary to what many keyboard warrior will tell you) other than it's too wide for old timey trails meant for horse and buggy. Old Jeeps and forerunners are cheaper and most people don't assume you're trying to compensate for something.

    So the Association aspect is why you're not always allowed to give a brand free advertising by just haphazardly including their products Because they want to associate their brand with certain situations, and not just show that it's wanted
