The Online Intermediary Liability Research Project

The Online Intermediary Liability Research Project generates research papers from multiple countries on intermediary liability issues for online service providers in the following topic areas: defamation, child protection, hate speech and privacy.

The UW Center for Advanced Studies and Research on Innovation Policy (CASRIP), with generous funding from Google, is coordinating and leading several research teams. We are focusing initially on the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China) and Thailand—all newly advanced economies where UW maintains close ties—because of their strategic importance to the unfolding intermediary liability landscape.
