WILMAP: St. Lucia


[Part 5 of the Electronic Transactions Act (§43) deals with Intermediaries and Internet Service Providers. The provision is basic and employs a ‘mere conduit’ approach. There is no affirmation of a non-requirement to monitor transmissions, and there is no elaboration on the procedure to be followed when knowledge of potential liability arises. §43 does however allude to procedures required by Regulations, but no such Regulations are known to have yet been passed.]


[There are currently no known new legislative proposals on the issue of intermediary liability. However, it is anticipated that in the near future, the government will seek to establish Regulations pursuant to the parent legislation cited above, which will include provisions on the conduct of intermediaries.]


[There are currently no known cases that have been brought before the courts on the issue of intermediary liability.]
