The Internet relies on intermediaries providing various functions. Often they see themselves as Internet Infrastructure providers without reference to the content of websites.
In this seminar, Sebastian Schwemer will provide an overview on the changes in the role of intermediaries and their liability exemptions in light of recent EU developments and relate these developments to the domain name system space.
Sebastian Schwemer is industrial researcher at the Danish Internet Forum (DIFO) and the Centre for Information and Innovation Law (CIIR), where he is conducting research on domain registries and their role and relation to online content.

The seminar consists of two parts. In the first part, the general secondary liability regime of the EU will be reviewed. In the second part, more specific developments regarding domain name take-downs will be examined. The seminar addresses a variety of questions such as:
- What is the liability framework for online intermediaries?
- What is the role of domain registries in the European framework?
- What are proposed voluntary mechanisms for online content regulation?
The seminar is open to everyone with an interest in Internet regulation and more specifically the role of intermediaries in content enforcement. The seminar is primarily directed towards lawyers, policy makers, researchers, and company representatives within the space.
