Now, waving a laser beam around to produce a logo, though feasible, is going to be frought with all sorts of optical problems as well as the biggie... will anyone see it? The reflected light off the moon will be much stronger than any laser beam intensity once it's gone to the moon, and certainly by the time it's bounced off the surface and the small fraction of laser light has come back to earth.

Entrepreneurs and ad folks have been coming up with these schemes for years. For instance:
A few years ago, a company called Space Marketing, Inc. (SMI) came up with a plan to send a mile-long billboard into space. Coated with reflective plastic, the billboard would beam down a corporate logo that appeared as large as the moon, and as it orbited the Earth, would be visible to every single person on the planet.
