re outdoor advertising – EXCELLENT POINT

“But there are other loopholes on French pavements. In Lille, as in Paris, shops are considered private spaces, and not subject to local advertising rules. So all kinds of shopfronts – from chemists to hairdressers and tech shops to trainer emporiums – can put up screens just behind their windows, beaming digital video into the street.

“’It’s crazy,’ said Fabien Delecroix an IT teacher from the Lille branch of anti-ad campaigners Résistance à l’Agression Publicitaire. ‘If someone stood naked at their window right on the street deliberately showing their body, you wouldn’t say: Oh that’s fine, they’re technically not exposing themselves because they’re in their own home.’”

Excellent point.
