The legal responsibilities of Internet intermediaries, their business practices and self- or co-regulatory codes

The liability of Internet intermediaries for content authored by or activities carried out by third parties was one of the earliest issues facing the emerging Internet industry. This chapter traces the evolution of legislation and jurisprudence concerning the liability of Internet intermediaries for hosting or transmitting illegal content in the United States and Europe. It then looks at various market-based, self- and co-regulatory approaches taken by Internet intermediaries that help achieve public policy goals. It highlights the role of experimentation and learning from experience to develop innovative solutions and best practices.
