Title: Online Intermediary Liability in the European Union
Authors: Cook, Trevor
Keywords: Online Intermediary
Liability
Safe Harbour
Issue Date: Mar-2012
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: One of the greatest challenges faced by legal systems throughout the world in recent times has been how they approach the question of the liability of online intermediaries for the infringement of intellectual property rights that can take place, without actual knowledge on their part, over their networks or on their platforms. Such online intermediaries can take a wide variety of forms, but specific types of ‘real-life’ online intermediary whose activities have now been the subject of a considerable body of litigation, both in the EU and elsewhere, are access providers, search engines, the operators of online marketplaces, and those who provide platforms for user generated content. In the EU the status of the first three such online intermediaries has now been considered by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU).
