i2Coalition & eco – Association of the Internet Industry invite you to discuss the future of intermediary liability on both sides of the Atlantic in a roundtable webinar featuring an expert panel.
When: Oct 15, 2020 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time (US and Canada) / 16:00 CET Wednesday, Central European Time (CET)
What we think of as “the Internet” really involves many different networks working in sync. Third parties such as web hosts, domain providers, and ISPs are almost always present. As such, determining liability in circumstances of real or perceived wrongdoing can often be up for discussion. Who should take responsibility? Right now, the intermediary laws that were largely written in the late 90’s and early 2000s are being reconsidered on both sides of the Atlantic, specifically with plans to overhaul Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in the United States, and the drafting of the Digital Services Act in the EU.
In our latest roundtable webinar, “Transatlantic Dialogue on Intermediary Liability – Part 1: The Internet industry speaks with the U.S.”, join high-level representatives from the US and Europe, Industry leaders, and the most relevant associations of the Internet Industry. This webinar will be followed by a corresponding roundtable “Intermediary Liability – Part II: The Internet industry speaks with the EU” with a date to be determined that will focus on Europe.
The Oct 15 roundtable webinar will address U.S. policy and foreign policy from a U.S. perspective. The expert panel will address policy developments on either side of the Atlantic relating to intermediary liability, and how these developments may impact the growth of the digital economy, cause trade barriers, and stunt the Internet’s ability to keep us all connected.
