Unless Ofcom has the authority and the means to enforce its will, I don't really see how much this will change anything.
By the time the ASA have gotten around to shifting their arse pretty much all they ever say is "The ad must not appear again in its current form" which does absolutely nothing to stop dishonest advertisers.
So I'm always surprised at how much advertising carp there is when I visit the same websites at work.
I should be able to say to advertisers that they are not allowed to run code or interfere with the normal operation of my computing device. If they violate that then they should be prosecuted as criminals under the Computer Misuse Act (1990).
