Traditionally, architectural work has not been considered a derivative work in American location shooting, but as the effects of architectural copyright settle in, more architectural copyright holders are starting to demand it, and this practice may open up a wide field of litigation, especially in California. Although architectural copyright does not apply to pictures if the architectural work is regularly visible from a public place, it does not make such an exemption for the interior of a non-public building. Producers of news photography and filmography is theoretically protected by the first amendment or through the fair use doctrine.
This contrasts with the practices of other countries such as France where producers regularly pay an architectural copyright fee.

Except for product placement, of course. Your new car, Mr. Bond, a BMW. Almost all computers in recent movies are Apple laptops, those that aren't are Dell. For years, all phones used to be Nokias (The Saint, anyone?). The Island is more or less a 136min Microsoft / Cadillac commercial. Blade Runner teaches us that Atari is still a major computer manufacturer in 2019, and Coca Cola covers half of L.A.
just watch a hollywood movie. Notice how none of the people in the background are wearing clothes with labels on them. There's not a nike, an adidas, a coca cola, a macdonalds
