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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
