Definition of terms used

I need to define the terms used in the questionnaire as the WWW is worldwide!!
1.Child pornography refers to a depiction of a minor in either an image or story which is deemed pornographic *see below( a minor is a person under the age of consent in YOUR country).
2.A control group of the web would be a world wide organisation which would review laws of member states and decide which material was suitable for publication on the web(the users could report"unsuitable"sites on hotlines).
3.Censor the net means prohibit access to certain documents & files on the network.
4.A Server refers to where data is stored, whether or not the data is produced by themselves.
5.To view a full discussion on censorship go to Policing the Internet

For the purposes of this study pornography refers to:
1.Pictures, writing, or other material that is sexually explicit and sometimes equates sex with power and violence.
2.The presentation or production of this material.

Alongside the survey i monitor and record whether a site has a warning page, availability of child protection software links,etc.

I do realise that these terms cannot be clearly defined but please answer the questionnaire using the definitions above.

Any disagreement with the definitions or clarification of your position can be placed in the"Any Comments" section,this will be refleccted in the write up of the paper.
Thanks Again.
Patrick Macartney.
