Internet Service Provider Liability - The Swiss Perspective Weber Rolf H. Switzerland does not have a concrete legal framework dealing with rights and obligations of ISPs; however, legal doctrine and practice apply similar principles as stated in the E-Commerce Directive of the EU. The liability of ISPs depends on the “closeness” to the content. Whereas in cases of solely transmitting services the risk of liability for illegal information is remote and the duty of ISPs is limited to a take-down, content, host and link providers (in cases of moder- ated newsgroups) can become liable if the information made available is not controlled. 340 periodical academic journal JIPITEC 1 3 2010 145 150 2190-3387 urn:nbn:de:0009-29-27933 weber2010
