They try everywhere to stop you. I have been challenged several times even in Texas. In most Texas cities, there is an unlimited right to film or photograph in a public place. But there are numerous busybodies out there who come up and ask, "Do you have a permit?". My first reply now is, "And you are...?". If they actually have some authority, I answer yes and refer them to a city official who actually knows what the rules are. If they interfere with my process, I call the police. If the police give me trouble, I refer them to their police legal advisor, which every Texas city has.
When a logo is prominent in the background, I take it out in post. First, it seems like common courtesy, and second, why should I provide free marketing?
