Microsoft Street Art

Well, they’re really trying with this new Windows Phone.  Maroon 5, Fillmore, free tickets, and this hot new street art stencil medium everyone’s been talking about lately.  Just clear something up for me real quick:  Is it legal to spray paint on sidewalks? 

If Banksy or random taggers are doing it, they usually get away with it too unless caught in the act since they don’t leave any identifiable details.  On the other hand, I’m pretty sure Microsoft is still located somewhere in Washington.  SFDPW, you know where to send the clean-up bill.

    I think it’s something about the permanence of it. So if it goes away with normal wear and tear in a couple of days then it’s all good, AFAIK

    Anything that doesn’t come up with a little water is illegal. I wonder if Microsoft will try to pay its fine in XBox credits.

    Awful. Both Maroon 5 and Windows Phone.

    If it were Banksy at least it would have a little child eating Maroon 5 and defecating a Windows Phone. That I would be amused to see.
