As it was explained to me - the ambiguousness of the statute (at least here pin the US) - is that you can be easily sued if the image (or whatever) has an impact on the storyline/plot.

If the protagonist has a picture of "ZYX" hanging on the wall it's not an issue. If the protagonist is somehow influenced by or wants to be like "ZYX" than it's story/plot point.

The ambiguousness of the statute is argued in the courts and decided upon by juries.

The lawyers could argue that the protagonist having a picture of "ZYX" on the wall is an indication of the influence of "ZYX" on the protagonist and that the protagonist is obviously influenced by "ZYX" since the picture is on the wall - even if "ZYX" is never mentioned or even hinted at in the plot/storyline.
