Outside Barclays Center's Dean Street entrance, 10th anniversary logo added to wall not explicity designated for promotional use

I wrote recently about how the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center have both changed their social media images so they can honor the arena's tenth anniversary year.

Well, it's also happening IRL.

As shown in the photo at right and below, the east side of the Dean Street entrance to the arena--a wall where advertising is not necessary allowed but promotion apparently is--now boasts the arena's tenth annivesary logo.

As I reported last October, the arena operators have stretched to monetize any available canvas for advertising or promotional value: they had recently installing a Brooklyn Nets logo and slogan ("Embrace Your Brooklyn") on that same wall.

The arena's Mandy Gutmann stated, in response to my query, "We're not aware of any permission that would have been required for the installation of the logo."

Maybe, maybe not. The situation seems not to have been addressed by the arena's Design Guidelines, so, as I wrote, the logic seems to be: if it's not forbidden, it's allowed.
