Abstract

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg handed down its first case concerning the liability of intermediaries. A ruling of the Estonian Supreme Court that imposed broad liability and a general monitoring obligation upon an internet news portal vis-à-vis third party comments made on its website under one of the news items was found by the ECtHR to be proportionate and justified interference with the freedom of expression.
