Europäischer Gerichtshof (EuGH)

Economics of Networks (Nicolas Economides)
In its decision of May 12, 1998, the Landgericht (Regional Court) Hamburg declared that linking to an Internet page may result in legal responsibility for the content of that page. According to the Regional Court's decision, this legal responsibility can only be avoided by explicitly distancing oneself from said content. Therefore the Institute of Transport Economics explicitly distances itself from all contents of all linked pages.
