User Generated Content and Rights Enforcement Online

Event Description:
Questions about liability arising from materials posted by users online are exceedingly important, as more and more users create and share content and more and more services exist to provide platforms to those users. If a user uploads an infringing video to a video-sharing site, is the site responsible for that infringement? If a commenter defames someone in an online forum or on a message board, can the site hosting the defamatory statement be held responsible? These questions—particularly on the copyright side—have been the focus of much attention of late in light of efforts to pass the "Stop Online Piracy Act" and "Protect IP Act" (in the U.S. House and Senate, respectively) and the arrests of several people involved in running the Mega upload file storage site. Christopher Bavitz, a clinical instructor and lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School and Assistant Director of the Law School's Cyberlaw Clinic, based at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, will provide an overview of liability regimes online and lead a discussion about the future of intermediary liability.
