Last week, Rethinking SLIC* published Göran Sluiter's blog post on the secondary liability of social media platforms in relation to 'image-based sexual abuse' (I-BSA, also known as 'revenge pornography'). The blog has prompted Dutch Member of Parliament Michiel van Nispen of opposition party SP to submit written questions on the matter to Minister of Justice Ferd Grapperhaus.
In his written questions, Van Nispen raises various issues discussed in the blog post. He asks whether there could be an exception to the EU Electronic Commerce Directive rules, which limit the liability of social media platforms, for I-BSA, and asks the Dutch government to take action to hold social media platforms accountable for the content they make available.
The written questions (in Dutch) can be downloaded from the Dutch Parliament website here.
