I suspect this is probably similar to the "illegal" posters that get
pasted up by rather large companies all around Sydney. The law
doesn't allow the cops to go after the companies: they have to catch
the pasters in the act.
So I wonder what support the companies who pay for this give to the
hapless pasters/sprayers? Do they get hung out to dry?
A friend of mine was arrested a few years back for painting a guerilla
bike lane on Cleveland Street. She ended up with a small fine.
