Paul obviously knows a lot more than I but I believe that has to do with being in a public place and anything that can be seen from a public place is fair game.

I don't want to say what they do with a can of coke in "Deep Throat" but the song "the real thing, bubbles bubbles bubbles" playing the background kinda makes the scene funny.

That's because I'm a licensed attorney who practices intellectual property law.

Why is there a "but"? Law isn't a matter of belief. It is what is.

And you're belief is simply wrong.

Keith,

Hehe, my friend got me the DVD he even provided the receipt that said on it "educational title", we laughed all the way through it. It was a classic to be sure.

I think I saw it in like 1980 at a drive in. It was a farce more than a porn. It was outright hilarious though.

Kieth that movie sent me on the hunt for more gems...

So far my friend and I have collected, behind the green door,
debbie does dallas, deep throat, sodomania, Johnny Wadd, my tongue is quick (don't ask) and quite a few others. My biggest gem was a bootleg tape of around 60 trailers to 1970's porn films, they were a huge inspiration to a design piece i did for my masters project, everyone loved it.

Paul,

There was a 'but' because I was deferring to you. BTW, you didn't answer his question.

Zac- I had rented behind the green door several years ago. Tell me... In your copy, is there a commercial for a giant invisible box about half way through?

Thank you Zac... People never seem to believe me, and I even started to doubt myself! But, I know it was really there, cause I rewound the tape and watched it again and again! It really was a commercial for an invisible box!

Do you mean the original question about getting product placement for small productions? Well, I don't know the answer to that. I'm actually going to try something similar for some travel videos I want to sell over the internet. However, I'm just as much in the dark as everyone else about whether it will work. My only edge is I can write the contract if I get a deal. ;)
