Should private actors enforce illegal online content?

Should private actors enforce illegal online content?

The Internet is increasingly being used as a platform for distributing infringing material. But who is responsible for removing this content and who decides when material is infringing?

At this seminar, Sebastian Schwemer will give a presentation of the various actors that can play a role in removing infringing content. There will be particular focus on the so-called intermediaries' responsibility and the phenomenon of trusted notifiers, which give third parties - private or public - privileged opportunities to report illegal online content.

Speaker

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.
