InternetNZ paper on Liability of ISPs for Third Party Content

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 17-Jan-2008 10:57

Yesterday, during my weekly coffee meetings in town, I had the opportunity to meet a fellow Geekzoner and two friends from the InternetNZ, Richard Wood and Campbell Gardiner.

By coincidence, today I received in the mail the InternetNZ Business Plan 2008 - 2009 and a booklet "Liability of Internet Service Providers for Third Party Content", by Dr Judith Bayer, InternetNZ Senior Research Fellow in Cyberlaw:


Dr Bayer's research considers ISP liability within a variety of different fields of the New Zealand law, including defamation, copyright, hate speech and related freedom of expression issues. She draws on overseas experience of ISP liability schemes and evaluates thepros and cons of those schemes.


It is a 109 page paper with (sometimes) dense information - IANAL but it is easy to read and understand the implications of current and propose laws in New Zealand.

I would like to see a similar paper describing the content creator's side of this scenario, in special the implications for on-line publications such as newspapers, blogs, portals and forums.
