Question 10

Should the fact that content is accessed in public or at home affect whether it should be classified? 

The large cluster of responses around ‘public’, ‘content’ and ‘people’ indicated that respondents saw the question of whether media content is accessed in public places as being relevant to classification, with only a small number of respondents saying ‘no’, and these responses not being connected to other key terms. For some, this was an important factor in distinguishing the internet from other media, such as movies, which were conencted to terms such as ‘viewed’, ‘displayed’ and ‘shown’, as well as to ‘public’. An interesting cluster of responses can be identified around the question of outdoor advertising, and whether it requires more stringent regulation on the basis of its public display.
