The Internet is dependent on intermediaries that provide a variety of functions. These intermediaries are traditionally exempted from liability for infringing material under certain conditions.
At this seminar, Sebastian Schwemer will present an overview of how the role of the intermediaries and their responsibilities have changed in the light of recent EU developments and link them to the domain name area.
Sebastian Schwemer is responsible for an industrial PostDoc research project at the Danish Internet Forum (DIFO) and the Centre for Information and Innovation Law (CIIR), which besides others looks at domain registries and their role regarding online content.

The seminar consists of two parts. The first part will focus on the general intermediary liability regime and recent European developments. In the second part, more specific developments regarding the removal of the right of use for a domain name will be examined.
The seminar will address the following questions:
- What is the liability framework for online intermediaries?
- Which changes does the EU propose regarding intermediary liability?
- What is the role of domain administrators in the European framework?
The seminar is open to anyone who has an interest in internet regulation and more specific the intermediaries’ role in relation to unlawful content. The seminar is primarily targeted lawyers, policy makers, researchers and professionals in the field.
