They have no permission to use the selfie stick.

Many countries are banning the tool that has contributed to the rise in injuries- the selfie stick! Many museums and theme parks including Disney support the government’s decision. (They have no permission to use the selfie stick.) West Japan Railways became the first in the world to give up the stick both inside Japan’s bullet trains and out on the railway platforms.
(Quoted from an English test paper in China)

The original passage I’ve found online does not have the sentence in the brackets.

My question is:does the sentence in the brackets make sense or is it necessary in the context?

Thanks in advance!

    1. I agree with AnythingGoes.
    2. If they mean "The use of selfie sticks is prohibited", then it's badly worded.
