Interesting proposal. Outside of Cuba, and even then they are increasingly allowing business to put signs on their premises, I haven’t heard of any jurisdiction on earth that disallows signage.

There is a great book on the issue of the affect of advertising on children’s cognitive development called Born to Buy by Juliet Schor. Highly recommended and although I was already predisposed to fight corporate intrusions into public space, it provides a great deal of data to back up that advocacy.
