Paramount Pictures being Sued for lack of Product Placement in Transformers: Age of Extinction

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Paramount Pictures and China Movie Channel, who produced the fourth installment in the Transformers series, are being sued for failing to place a logo in the final cut of the film.

Parts of the film were shot in Wulong Karst National Park, and the Wulong Karst Tourism company made a deal with Paramount to display its logo in the film. The deal saw $750,000 trade hands to Paramount, but the lawsuit filed is for $27.7 million.

The studios have admitted guilt and offered an alternative by way of an advertisement for the resort, on top of remaining sets and props left at the resort to encourage tourism. The case is being review in the Chongqing City court, and was originally filed in 2014.
