dukwbutter: I think that they will have some control over the sign's commercial use. Colorado used a photo of Wyoming's Tetons promoting tourism in Colorado. Wyoming sued and won.
Krieghund: From the portlandoregon.gov web site:If you'd like to use an image of the Sign for any sort of commercial purpose, such as licensing, filming, or photography please contact the Bureau of Internal Business Services. Contact and fee information is listed below.Don't worry, your vacation photos are fine.
El_Frijole_Blanco: The sign lets you know you are entering the hobo haven part of town as well as a place to find strip clubs, drag shows and bacon donuts
nekom: If it's so "iconic" how come I've never heard of it before this in my life? Granted I'm way on the other side of the country, but I am keenly aware of the iconic "Hollywood" sign, the famous Vegas signs and others. Never heard of this.
