About the event

Service providers are now playing an increasingly active role in the process of law enforcement, whether to protect intellectual property rights, enforce data subjects’ rights, or prevent the spread of malicious and offensive content. Have law-makers managed to strike the right balance between Internet intermediaries’ rights and duties? Is international law equipped to deal with the increasing transnational interaction between law enforcement and service providers?

Hosted by the University of Southampton’s Interdisciplinary Core on Law, Internet and Culture (iCLIC), you are invited to join researchers, legal practitioners, digital rights advocates and NGOs to debate these key issues. Our exciting list of speakers includes the Honourable Mr Justice Arnold, Professor Luciano Floridi, Professor Frank Pasquale, Hugh Tomlinson QC and Professor Ian Walden.

Discussion topics include:

  • Intellectual Property Law Enforcement
  • Internet intermediaries and the Right to Be Forgotten: Balancing rights and business
  • Law Enforcement Transnational Access to Data
  • Internet Intermediaries’ Security Obligations
  • The Roles and Responsibilities of Search Engines
  • Internet Intermediary Defences and Immunities
  • Internet Intermediaries’ Liability Regimes: a medley of domestic hot topics
  • Terrorism-related content and Internet Intermediaries

Delegates will be given a detailed review of recent developments and hot topics relating to the roles and responsibilities of Internet intermediaries in the fields of intellectual property law, media law, privacy and data protection law, and information security and surveillance law. The conference will take place at the University of Southampton Highfield Campus on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th September 2015.
