Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In general regulation is preferable to these kinds of grassroots or media initiatives by activists or NGOs - specifically the kind of advertising reguation that you see in Nordic countries (perhaps part of the reason Starvid doesn't see too many bottled water ads).

The situation is complicated elsewhere because we live in a media environment and have a general discourse where bans on ads in which cars make trees grow and flowers bloom would be considered government intrusion on freedom of speech.

So there is a point - still, as regulation is better it should remain the ultimate goal.
