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.
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.

At the seminar, we will look at questions like:
- What is the role of domain administrators in the European framework?
- Which changes does the EU propose regarding intermediary liability?
- What is the EUs stance on trusted notifier models?
- Issues of voluntary and contractual take-down mechanisms
The seminar is open to anyone who has an interest in internet regulation and more specific domain administrators' trusted notifiers’ role in relation to unlawful content. The seminar is primarily targeted lawyers, policy makers, researchers and professionals in the field.
