In fact, none of these preconceptions are correct. This suggests the need for education of consumers on the unique features of FOSS and (though not covered in the phase one survey) other forms of free licensing such as Creative Commons. 8 Categorising the access barriers As well as being grouped into political, economic, social and technological factors, many of the access barriers identified are related and can be clustered together. This may be because the same access barrier was identified in respect of more than one class of material (for example cost was identified as a barrier to accessing educational material, software, and films and music), or in respect of more than one type of access or use (for example legal constraints were identified as a barrier to copying, borrowing and sharing), or simply because the barriers exemplify the same underlying problem in two different contexts (for example, “Too many editions or curriculum changes”, of educational materials, was grouped with “Becomes outdated quickly, requiring updates” of software).

These were the section on purchasing copyright works, and the section on accessing them online.
