Why are films not included in this ruling?

Every Hollywood film is stuffed full of paid for product placement to advertise the products - I see no warnings on films.

Same goes for sporting events - every football match or F1 race is stuffed full of billboards and adverts on clothing - where's the warning on Match of the Day "Warning - the following football match contains adverts for Ginsters Pasties and Expensive Trainers'

Advertising is a fact of life - the only place I don't expect to see it is factual content - news, documentaries etc. Everything else is just 'Meh' and the brain filters it out (or subliminally goes out and buys an Aston Martin because James Bond drives one)
