Sony faces fines for PSP graffiti

Amusingly enough, Sony is facing the wrath from consumers and cities alike. Due to their latest underground advertising campaign via graffiti for the Sony PSP, there has been outrage by both those of the graffiti world and those that are anti-urban art. In any case, the cities were not pleased either.
The City of Philadelphia has warned Sony that if they do not take down their ads, that they will be fined for placing advertisement without permits.
Crazy thing is… how the heck did Sony legal let this get away from them in the first place?
Another stupid corporate blunder.

  • Sony has really gone off its rocker recently.
    “Wouldn’t it be great to get ‘in’ with the urban culture through graffiti ads?”
    “We should make a series of pencil-drawn TV ads that are stupid and piss people off.”
    “Let’s install rootkits so we can ensure people don’t copy our music!”
    And, of course:
    “EVERYONE will want a device to watch videos on a little screen, even if we can’t provide any good games.”
    Someone there needs to call Apple and figure out how to advertise.
