Seminar: Should there be changes to the liability of domain registries in light of unlawful and unwanted content online?
The internet relies on intermediaries providing a range of functions. They often see themselves as internet infrastructure providers with no liability for the content of websites.
At this seminar, Sebastian Schwemer will provide an overview of changes to the role of these intermediaries and their liability in light of recent EU developments. He will also relate these developments to the domain name system space.
Sebastian Schwemer is an industrial researcher at the Danish Internet Forum (DIFO) and the Centre for Information and Innovation Law (CIIR). His research focuses on the role of domain registries and their role in 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 issues such as:
- What is the liability framework for online intermediaries?
- What is the role of domain registries in the European framework?
- What are the proposed voluntary mechanisms for online content regulation?
The seminar is open to anyone 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.
