    maybe this video implies you can use brand names in books or tv shows u write, this I think is false, go ahead and use them to add detail. fair use deals with copyrighted creative art or stories not just a company name. in a book y or tv show my waitress can says she works at the cheesecake factory, or at Apple, this is not even close to infringing on a copyright since it is not stealing marketshare or profiting off the copyrighted artwork. one could NOT use the artwork of the logo or the decor of the restaurant, but Big Bang was careful to not do this. i think trademarked names can used, trademark law is different area of law but still probably can use corporate names since no one would be confused about if you are selling products as a representative of the company. I could NOT say I worked at cheesecake factory and then sell cheesecakes, this is trademark infringement. There are books where a serial killers is said to work for UPS, but UPS despite this bad press can't demand the author remove this and instead leave it blank - -- otherwise no villain would ever have a day job. I am 90% thinking I am right, go ahead and use corporate names in books or tv shows, just no artwork or logos (logos are tricky). Good video..

    Very interesting. I learned a lot. I'm okay with product placement if I never see another commercial again! I hate them SO MUCH! BTW, your probably too young to remember movies when they had "fake" brands, like fake Tide that looked like Tide but was called Fade or something equally stupid. Used to drive me nuts & actually pull me out of the movie. Gotta be a happy medium somewhere.

    There's always something so weird to me about the choice of the name "Cheesecake Factory" - if their whole image is supposed to be aspirational, why does their name sound like the cheapest, most disgusting mass produced shit in the world? I mean, we don't have it in this country to my knowledge, I've never been, so maybe that is what it tastes like... but *why would you name it that?*

    You really need to separate trademark from copyright, they are entirely different branches of law that don't share key traits in common and don't share the same standard for infringement. You also don't do a good job of explaining copyright law, and you don't even touch trademark (though you mention it and appear to use trademark interchangeably with copyright, which is wrong). The product placement section of your vid seemed fine, and I've enjoyed most of your videos, especially getting into film theory, but you should not try to explain the law unless you are a licensed attorney.

    My favorite part about product placement in Transformers is that Ford did not pay for product placement in the first movie. Chevrolet paid the crew to make Barricade look like a Mustang without actually being a Mustang. Which, if I were Ford, I would've latched onto in a heartbeat. "We sell the car that tried to kill Shia Lebouef!"

    The greatest "not" product placement I know, must be in the FedEX movie. You know, the one with Tom Hanks on an Island. The company said it wasn't product placement and they did not pay the production company anything to ... let them show the logo here or there. They only provided them with planes, trucks, uniforms, logistics, cars, extras (in form of the CEO).

    I love the video, but I have to say that I didn't appreciate the kind of negative connotation for The Satanic Temple. I don't know if you're aware of this, but The Satanic Temple actually promotes egalitarianism and social justice, and was formed as a sort of religious mockery. Maybe you did know this, but I really feel like some people got the wrong impression because of some negative connotations that they were real Satan-worshippers rather than people who use Satan as a metaphor.

I understand that "there's no such thing as bad publicity," but it seems odd that companies would be on board with those (arguably) negative representations. Thoughts?

    It does work on one level or another. When we visited Vegas from the UK we put the Cheesecake Factory on our itinerary just in the hope of recreating some Big Bang Theory moments - we were perversely disappointed at how nice the place was. But the food was delicious and we spent a shed load of money in there so in the end it was wins all around.

    One area that both of these concepts apply, especially in regard to consumer ethics, is the inclusion of name brand firearms in movies, TV and video games. I would never argue that the inclusion of these things in media contributes to gun violence, but gun companies are often paid lucrative licensing deals for the inclusion of their products in media, and the inclusion of a product in a particularly popular piece of media can directly contribute to sales of that product. Depending on how one feels about the gun industry and firearms in general, this can make reconciling a person's beliefs with the desire to play the new Call of Duty game, or go see the new John Wick movie difficult.

    Technically what The Cheese Cake Factory got from The Big Bang Theory what i like called Subconscious Free Advertising from a Popular Medium. BBT being a popular show on a Primetime Network having there attractive character working there soly for few seasons as a waitress/bartender that she can afford a apartment right across from scientist of a university and have even some mostly iconic scenes in the restaurant. The viewers at home see this and now mostly likely want to visit and or work at a cheese factory even more to feel connected to the show in some way boast the restaurant empire money and employment more which is why the PR Lady said " We have no real connection to the show but happy to be apart of it" they are saying we didn't have to pay the show and still benefiting from it. The show never painted the restaurant in a negative light and the show restaurant was very different from the real thing so when patrons comes to the real restaurant they only have a positive image of the restaurant. Unless while in the real restaurant they have bad experience because of reasons of whatever doesn't effect the brand or show as a whole.
