Abstract

Commissioned by the WODC (Research and Documentation Centre of the Ministry of Security and Justice), research has been conducted on duties of care on the Internet, more specifically from the perspective of Internet service providers. The situation in four countries - the Netherlands, the UK, Germany and France - was researched. The (self-)regulation with respect to five separate themes (Internet security and safety, child pornography, copyright, identity fraud and the trade in stolen goods through Internet platforms) was identified. In addition to this, a significant number of interviews with stakeholders were conducted.
