Nutty Hamburg ISP Precedent Nixed

CK - Washington   The bloggers' Hamburg Damocles' Sword has been lifted by a February 4, 2009 appellate ruling published a few days ago. The Hamburg district court had subjected operators of Internet fora to liability for comments left by third parties. The Hamburg Court of Appeals rejected any contributory liability in the matter 5 U 180/07 and confirmed the statutory principles immunizing Internet operators from liability for third-party activities. Screening for the approval of comments is no longer required.
