Sometimes the residue is hard to remove and cleaners can damage the plastic or rubbing can leave a mark.

I'd avoid the tape on the display area. I have taped things to the frame since that's just cosmetic.

Then what's the worry? We'll use black tape over product logos during a shoot. In our case we like to use painter's tape.
