Criminalisation: Applying a living-standard analysis to non-consensual photography and distribution
Burton, Kelley J. (2007) Criminalisation: Applying a living-standard analysis to non-consensual photography and distribution. QUT Law and Justice Journal, 2(7).
Determining whether conduct should be criminalised or not, is a serious problem because the criminal law is becoming more civilised. This article explores the living-standard analysis tool, which provides a systematic decision-making framework rather than leaving it to intuition. This tool is applied to four examples of non-consensual photography and distribution, and the results are compared with the criminal law. This comparison indicates that the two do not always coincide. Over-criminalisation is one possible explanation for this discrepancy. This article recommends further research into the usefulness of the living-standard analysis tool.
