Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


During the last few years the CEC has paid special attention to the transborder liability for on-line data banks and has introduced research programmes in all twelve member states regarding the liability for such data banks. The results of these studies are published in this volume. National activities pertaining to the provision of on-line data banks in each member state are described. Following this, the national reports analyse both contractual and tortious liability. Particular emphasis is placed on the contractual classification of the On-Line-Contract, the limits of liability exclusions through standard business terms, the product liability for data, as well as the resulting practical consequences of the present legal situation.
