I find that strange, apparently the word did not get passed down from management to the guards that it was at there request that you were there...just goes to show, most of the time when we are told we CAN'T photograph, means somewhere somehow, communications have broke down, just like the controversay that continues to go on over photographing public buildings, it will be interesting to see if that ever gets solved..

This very proposed law is the reason I ALWAY advocate getting a release when your photographing recognizable things or people, saves a heck of alot of heart ache, logo's are property and hence the people owning the property do have say over how that property is used and photographers and movie makers can be held liable, unless no malicious or damaging intent can be shown.
