    Interesting and perhaps tragic implications for POTV.
    No commercial advertising of e-cigs or juice chokes off revenue needed to cover running costs.
    Reviews can only be factual reporting and not contain recommendations.
    On the plus side POTV is presenting information which must be searched for but activities where information is pushed out is suspect.

    Let's hope some other website is used to set the precedent. Approved Vapers on facebook looks completely fucked!

    This is the worryng one for the forum:

    Media which are subject to the prohibitions

    online (“display”) advertisements in paid-for space (including banner or pop-up advertisements and online video advertisements),

    However you can put an advert on a bus and thats fine, within certain parameters.....

    I think it's ok, to advertise the company though, just not the specific items it outlines

    How does someone find out if Phillip Morris made a payment of £1,000,000,000 to the CAP for them to do this? C'mon you conspiracy theorists whadya think?

    Could the forum as a closed members only space be exempt?
