Event Details

Intermediary Responsibility: Duties, Regulation and Liability

The Internet has revolutionised many aspects of life, indeed it has become an integral part of many people’s lives.  Much that the Internet enables is beneficial – it allows for the sharing of information at an instant, and on a global scale, and has transformed commerce.  In the wrong hands the Internet can also be used to cause harm, whether to provide ready access to counterfeit or pirate content, to spread terrorist propaganda or to harm or bully the most vulnerable in society.  The rise of social media, in particular, has played an integral part in enabling the dissemination of such material.

Legislation recognised some years ago that intermediaries will, in many cases, be best placed to bring infringing activities to an end.  As new technologies have developed this has raised many questions as to the responsibilities that should be borne by online intermediaries.  What is the extent of their responsibilities and how are these to be given effect as legal duties?  In what circumstances should the intermediary face monetary or non-monetary liability for infringing activities?  To what extent does regulation provide an answer?  Panellists Frederick Mostert (Professor at King's College and consultant at Bird & Bird LLP), Rachel Alexander (Partner at Wiggin LLP) and Jaani Riordan (8 New Square) will discuss the latest developments in this field, and will consider whether consensus is being reached by relevant stakeholders or whether interested parties continue to operate in a parallel universe.

Attendance is free for members and new applicants for membership.  New membership applications are welcome - please see our website www.aippi.org or contact secretary@aippi.org.uk for further details (membership options are: Junior £35 (aged under 30); Junior £70 (aged under £36; Corporate £150 (industry only); and Individual £150.

The charge for non-members is £50, payable online at the time of registration.

There are a limited number of free tickets available for students in full-time education, on a first come, first served basis (proof of full time student status must be sent to secretary@aippi.org.uk before the date of the event, the absence of which may result in entry being refused).

At the time of registering, if someone else registers on your behalf (e.g. your secretary or PA), please make sure that they book in your name.
