Plain packaging of infant formula in South Africa: are tobacco products different?

Apologies to any readers of this blog who may have been my earlier post on the IPKat, but I felt that this post was too important not to post on Afro-IP as well, since it specifically deals with the law in South Africa.

The post is "Of principles and plain packaging: is infant formula different from tobacco?" (here). It's about South Africa's controversial Regulations R991 and the plain packaging of infant formula.  My blogpost discusses the issue and tries to find a justification for imposing plain packaging and marketing restrictions on infant formula but not on tobacco products.
