"Tobacco companies in Australia will be forced to strip all logos from their cigarette packages and replace them with graphic images, such as cancer-riddled mouths and sickly children, under legislation unveiled today -- a move the government says will make Australia the world's toughest country on tobacco advertising. The law would remove one of the tobacco companies' last methods of advertising by banning them from printing their logos, promotional text or colourful images on packaging." (04/07/11)
