Exactly...and the same goes for Sears and the manufacturing suppliers who donated items to the home.
If there were any "conditions" issued by those companies, they probably all related to how their individual product logos or mentions of their companies would be staged throughout the television episode.
In my opinion, the shows demonstrate a calculated risk by all parties concerned.
