Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On “Can Over-The-Top Platforms Claim Immunity Under The Safe Habour Doctrine?”

Featuring: Shilpa Margaret Kurian

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar – General IP’ (LIS-GIP) was conducted by Shilpa Margaret Kurian, Associate, on “Can Over-The-Top Platforms Claim Immunity Under The Safe Habour Doctrine?”. The seminar explored the legal provisions that can be interpreted to determine whether an over-the-top (OTT) platform as a publisher can claim immunity under the safe habour doctrine. The session delved into the divergent views taken by courts on the issue. The session concluded with an interesting discussion on whether there is a requirement for an amendment to the existing framework to expressly deal with the liability of over-the-top platforms and whether OTT platforms have the same liability as social media platforms.
