Since I've read all this I might as well add that you only have to go to the BBC news website to see loads of staged shots used as editorial. A Pepsi bottle could easily be used in a "Pepsi to buy another company" story, or something similar. I imagine that a major usage of shots of particular products will be in business stories.


Another probable major (illegal) use is in "special offer, 50% off Pepsi in our shop on Tuesday" type adverts. It would be a license violation but some users won't care and I doubt if it would lead to any problems.

Yes, exactly.

And yes, that would be unacceptable usage
