* For the entirety of their VHS run, older Disney films had any instance of the Creator/RKOPictures logo removed however they could. Because it appeared within the credits themselves, this resulted in either the logo being plastered over with something else (e.g. a generic TheEnd card in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''), or the first few bars of the opening fanfare being cut out completely (as with ''Disney/PeterPan''). When they started rereleasing these movies on Blu-Ray, the RKO logos finally returned.

* TheKinks' 1970 hit "Lola", as it appears on the album ''Lola vs. Powerman and the Moneygoround'', includes the line "Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca-Cola". This was changed to "cherry cola" for the single release to appease [[Creator/TheBBC the BBC]]. And it happened again when Robbie Williams covered it in the live-lounge. They later sold that cover in a live-lounge album too.
* The EurovisionSongContest forbids songs from containing references to brand names. Only one song has gotten into trouble with this rule, San Marino's SoBadItsGood song "Facebook Uh, Oh, Oh", which got re-edited as "The Social Network Song ([[LampshadeHanging Uh-oh]], Uh, Oh, Oh)"

* British reality food show ''Series/ComeDineWithMe'' was for a long time sponsored by wine company Echo Falls who used an EarWorm song, Camera Obscura's ''French Navy'', as backing music. When the show changed sponsor, people contacted the makers to ask why they'd dropped the theme tune: it simply stick in viewers' heads as the theme music, despite the fact the ''official'' theme tune, a low-key piece played on CreepyPizzicatoStrings, was still there at start and end of the show.
