LEGISLATION

 
[§§25 of the Electronic Transactions Act deals with ‘Liability of Intermediaries’. The statutory provisions generally employ a ‘mere conduit’ approach, and do not require intermediaries to actively monitor electronic documents. Intermediaries are required to remove documents and cease providing services in relation to documents, where knowledge of liability arises.]

BILLS AND PENDING PROPOSALS

[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.]

DECISIONS

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