Media advertising in public spaces: two different government responses
On Line Opinion (2011)
  • Jo Coghlan, Southern Cross University
Abstract
In Chinese cities like Beijing and Chongqing certain types of outdoor advertising are banned. Advertisements that promote "high-end lifestyles", particularly "foreign things" have triggered the ire of Chinese administrators. The rationale for outdoor advertising bans of certain products is that it "may trigger social unrest". The claim is that such advertisements create a "politically unhealthy climate." Violators face fines of up to AUS$4,500.
