Know Your Rights and Limitations When You Photograph Property
Nevertheless, some companies have tried to prevent the use - both commercially and editorially - of photographs of their buildings or objects via trademark protection or contract law. Examples include the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the lone Cypress tree at Pebble Beach, CA, and the "Hollywood" sign. While these attempts have been unsuccessful, they can be expensive to litigate. Is it worth it to you to spend thousands of dollars to test this issue? That's a choice you'll have to make.
On the other hand, photographers should protect their rights, too. Don't be intimidated from photographing what is within your legal rights. Check with an attorney to fully understand and exercise your privileges.
