    Do they have the building owners' permission to do that?

    They do not need it, not like it is vandalism or in any way destructive, not even a breech of the peace, obstructing commerce or a health concern or any of the reasonable sounding excuses mayors have used to shut them down. It's brilliant. Try complaining that someone else's light waves are hitting your building in NYC.

    So, for example, if McDonald's wanted to shine their golden-arches beacon on the Chrysler building that would be ok?

    Probably not but then again it would not be a 1st amendment protest activity but one of commercial infringement.

    Sort of like Greenpeace scaling a building and unfurling a banner?

    No that would be trespassing and creating a nuisance, still cool, but not the same thing.

    Worried much?

    Feel the tide changing against your corporate masters?
