* Lots of hip-hop videos in TheNineties were full of shirts, hats, and other paraphernalia that had to get their logos blurred out. It still happens on occasion, Pharrell Williams' sneakers are blurred out in Creator/SnoopDogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" (especially odd because there's a close-up of them at the line "See these Ice Creams").

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie An Extremely Goofy Movie]]'' had a lot of references to the X-Games that were popular on the Disney-owned ESPN at the time, but when they run the film on The Disney Channel, they cut out all the ESPN references. Most notably is a blimp with a hideous gray blur over it.

* 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.

* Coca-Cola and Mercedes declared their names and logos (including that of Thums Up, a local cola owned by Coke) off-limits from the movie SlumdogMillionaire because they did not want to be associated with the Mumbai slum colony known as Dharavi (Coca-Cola in particular objected to the use of the logo before a dumping ground).

* 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 ''Series/ThePriceIsRight''.
