* On a related note, ''The Price is Right'' has the verbal descriptions of prizes used in games be generic descriptions without any brands mentioned, unless the item is sponsored and has promotional copy instead. However, sometimes (especially on prizes), they may zig-zag it by mentioning one brand and not another (i.e. referring to an Xbox One console as just a "video game package", yet still mentioning it comes with Kinect)

* The British game show ''Supermarket Sweep'' used to do this with all the products on the set (a fake supermarket). The credits at the end of the show would include the line "Products supplied by Somerfield". The [[SupermarketSweep American]] version proudly embraced its ProductPlacement, being the game show with probably the most product placement of everyday items not named ''ThePriceIsRight''.

[[AC:General]]
* Old movies and TV shows bearing {{Vanity Plate}}s with dated bylines might have these plastered over with the current studio logos in newer prints. (eg, The Creator/UnitedArtists "Transamerica T" has become impossible to find compared to logos that read, "United Artists: An [[Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer MGM]] Company.")
* Logo plastering can also occur when distribution rights for a movie [[ChannelHop pass on to a different studio]]. (eg, Current releases of ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' bear the Creator/WarnerBros shield instead of the Creator/{{Paramount}} mountain.)

** Lampshaded and stomped on in one episode of ''MrsBrownsBoys''. Agnes asks why there's black tape on the cellphone box Buster is seen carrying and he replies that it's due to BBC advertising rules. Agnes nods understandingly, then points out that from the shape of the box it's clearly an iPhone 4.

* Some reruns and many DVD releases of certain TV shows replace them with generic tunes to avoid paying royalties, two of the more infamous examples being ''{{WKRP In Cincinnati}}'', and ''HappyDays'' on DVD from Season Two on.

* Both ''AceOfCakes'' and (in earlier episodes) ''CakeBoss'' are forbidden from saying "Rice Krispies Treats", even though it's a very well-used "construction material".

* Normally averted by the copious amounts of product placement on ''TheWire'', it is played straight in the opening of season four when Snoop buys Chekhov's nail gun from obvious Home Depot stand-in "Hardware Barn."

** The prints used for the 1998 and 2010 theatrical re-releases made two different attempts at eliminating the Gulf+Western bylines from the opening and closing Creator/{{Paramount}} logos. The 1998 print replaces the logos with ones from 1995, which read "Paramount: A Creator/{{Viacom}} Company". (Paramount did this again when remastering the movie for its 2006 DVD re-release) The 2010 print begins once again with the 1975 Paramount logo, but with the byline reading "A Viacom Company" instead of "A Gulf+Western Company".

* ''Film/{{Grease}}'' boasts blurred-out Coca-Cola signs in the diner scene. Sponsor Pepsi demanded that Creator/{{Paramount}} either censor the references to their competitor, or reshoot the diner scene, and the studio opted for the cheaper and quicker of the two options. It's particularly noticeable in one scene in which two characters are conversing in front of a rather large Coke ad. The print used for "Sing-Along" theatrical re-releases starting in 2010 covers that ad with a pattern matching the rest of the diner wall.
** Oddly enough, Coca-Cola ended up sponsoring Creator/{{Fox}}'s 2016 live version of the ''Grease'' musical, which meant that for once, the diner really ''was'' coated in Coca-Cola product placements.

* Some major sporting events (primarily the Olympics and [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup FIFA World Cup]]) require venues with naming rights sponsors to be referred to under generic names (or in some cases, former names) during and within all media relating to the event, as the naming rights sponsor does not have sponsorship rights to the event itself. As an example, during the 2006 World Cup, most sponsored venues were re-named "FIFA World Cup Stadium ''[city name]'' (the [=EasyCredit=] Stadium in Nuremberg instead used its historic name of Frankenstadion), and during the 2012 Olympics, the O2 Arena in London was unceremoniously renamed North Greenwich Arena.
