A court in Norway upholds a national ban on displaying tobacco products in stores in plain sight as part of a policy to discourage smoking. Major European seller Philip Morris (PM) says it may appeal the decision on the grounds it violates a free trade agreement between the EU and non-member Norway.

    Philip Morris is PM, not MO. MO is Altria, which covers US operations. Philip Morris Intl sells outside of the US

    When will SA editors wake up? Confusing MO with PM is not a small error.

    Stop harping on the authors confusion on MO vs PM. We all know what he meant. Whats important is that Norway has joined Australia
    on an unfair method to reduce cigarette sales.

    Agreed.....First Norway and Australia, then where? The typos are insignificant in this debate.
