Research output: Book / ReportReport

Abstract

There is no specific regulation on issues of blocking, filtering, and take-down in Dutch law. However, a wide body of case law exists, primarily based on the liability exemption for information society service providers as laid down in Article 196c book 6 Civil Code (implementation of EU Directive 2000/31/EC on e-commerce).
