With most of the illegal signs in Los Angeles advertising products for the entertainment industry, why aren't they the focus of investigations, The Wrap questions today in an article. “We asked that question to the city attorney -- Paramount and DreamWorks made the arrangement for the advertising, why shouldn’t they suffer?” Dennis Hathaway of Ban Billboard Blight says. “But I think that’s legally more than the city attorney wants to bite off right now.” As for the most recent controversial supergraphic at Hollywood and Highland, since taken down and pictured here, Paramount says they were assured it was legal. In a statement, they said they "have promptly investigated any necessary steps to be in full compliance with all applicable laws." So no more illegal signs from Paramount?
