    Do you mean this, from the elevator scene ( NCIS ).
    BlackBerry should etch in the BlackBerry bullet moving forward symbol prominently on the front plastic part of the phone, and color it reflective silver or bright white. These shows go through great lengths the obscure BlackBerry.

    That's sad.

    Why cover it up?

    I'm sure BlackBerry will let them use it branded without much of a penalty.

    Nice! They probably called BlackBerry to see if they would pay for product placement and they couldn't agree on a price so they just covered it.

    Or maybe they just had a Z10 hanging around and the used it. But the covered the logo since they didn't ask BlackBerry to use their trademark

    The reason it was probably taken off was called Product Placement. Usually, the show wants to be paid to show a logo or brand name. My guess would be that BlackBerry did not want to pay a fee here, not the other way around.

    The new character ,blond girl ,uses a Z10, some other people who have been on the show have used Q10s. The show takes place in DC so lots of government and corporate types. I guess they are trying to be accurate about props or there is a BlackBerry fan in the props department

    Thinking back there have been lots of BlackBerry's on the show over the years several of the main characters used them for awhile ,except Gibbs he always uses the same flip phone.

    The funny thing is its takes extra effort to blur out the name.

    BlackBerry should contact the show and give them permission to show the name and logo. As for paying for product placement, it's great advertisement and would be well worth the expense. It can't be that much. NCIS is a top-rated show.

    I've actually noticed this in a lot of police shows as well. Interesting to see nonetheless

    They don't want to sponsor BlackBerry's products unless BlackBerry pays them. It's all about the $$$!

    Capitalism.

    What is crazy in capitalism are people who expect things for free.

    Personally, I think BlackBerry should be more proactive in product placement.

    It isn't like BlackBerry has a clue about marketing though... so odd as marketing is a MAJOR part of the whole capitalism game.

    BlackBerry should definitely give them some cash and have them show the logo. It's got to be cheaper and more targeted than much of the other marketing they have done.
