(12) Signs on utility poles.No sign shall be placed on or attached to other signs, utility poles, fire hydrants, trees, flag poles, street lamps or other means of support of an outdoor advertising display.
Check your ordinances for your area. If a gung-ho CE officer wanted to, CAUSS could be made liable for the fines under the same law we're trying to apply to Herbalife; meaning at the very least, the owner(s) of the domain would be beneficiaries of said signage and subject to the fines. Layering signs seems to fall under this definition.
I hate to vindicate our troll, but they may have a valid argument against stickering. At the very least, contact the CE in your area to ask their opinion of stickering. They may turn a blind eye if it ultimately helps them.
#2. "RE: Stickering - check your ordinances!" In response to Reply # 1
The Ugly Litter Campaign (which is unassociated with CAUSS, but we love you guys) uses stickers as its primary response to street spam.
It's silly to think that stickers placed on top of signs for the express purpose of eliminating the sign problem would ever be prosecuted. The judge would laugh and throw out the case.
Administrative procedures such as CE would instantly recognize our stickers as helpful. In fact, we have discussed this question with CE offices in several cities.
Herbalife spammers use this spurious argument against our stickering despite the ridiculous irony involved. "You can't put stickers on our signs because it's illegal to post anything in the right-of-way. So leave our signs alone!"
