Another “Illegal” Movie Ad Campaign from Sony? “District 9″ Posters in District 5

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Right: 

District 9 is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Neill Blomkamp, set for an August 14, 2009 release date.”

Fair enough, but what’s up with all these viral campaign posters just put up in San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi‘s District 5 on Haight Steet in the Lower Haight?

Are these things kosher? I mean, didn’t the Rincon Hill blog just drop the hammer on Sony last week for temporary chalk Angels and Demons sidewalk stencil “grafitti.” Didn’t Sony just apologize to City Attorney Dennis Jose Herrera?

Are stickers a kind of graffiti as well?

Did Sony pay a fee for this? (Doubt it.) Can I advertise my business for free on these poles too?
