Perhaps it will swing on a definition of placing an advertisement? If notification/promotion of a product is permitted without any financial inducement is it an advertisement?

Whilst not wanting to suggest anything I do believe that with a 100% non commercial forum such as UKV the validity of EU citizens having the right to freedom of speech and expression is a hugely important one and crucially a legal right in EU law. After all e-cigs aren't illegal, they are deemed consumer products and with all the EU Directives/Charter that seek to prohibit discrimination and promote individual freedoms how could a site such as UKV be banned? After all this is the democratic EU and not North Korea ..........or have we all been fooled? I suspect and hope that any attempts to stifle individual expression and free speech will be fought and I'd gladly volunteer to be targeted.

Thanks for the vid Rojeans,I don't do facebook and twitter myself but family members do so i'll get them to share it.

Looks like after may next year I shall become a criminal,Just had to fill in some forms for the police to check me out so I can do some work on their police training college and one of the questions was "Do you associate now or have you ever knowingly associated with any person involved in illegal activities",this year I can answer no but when it comes up for renewal next year..............30

I've always liked Andy's work and that says it brilliantly. I even managed to hold down my lunch through the Linda Macavan montage!

RE: This Video will be illegal from May 2016
As always Andy makes perfect sense. As a vendor it's easy to be seen as an advocate with a vested interest.
As a vaper who switched three years ago with the help of forums like ours and the usual suspects of YouTube reviewers it's a terrifying prospect.
However far we have moved on through our individual vaping journey it is our legacy to give those that follow the opportunity to do the same, to have a safer alternative.

Don't see how e-cig reviewers could be banned when videos like below are not stopped.

This is the most ironic part: there are tobacco smokers' forums, forums about illegal drug use, yet vaping forums could be banned...
