I want to create a website where people can upload pictures of their favorite sweaters and rate the submissions of other users. All fine and dandy but what if someone uploads illegal material?

Am I responsible for every single upload? Is there a technical solution to protect my website?

The last thing I want is to get in trouble because some jerk uploads stuff like sexual content of minors and that taught alone terrifies me.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • For the responsibility part, you need to talk to a lawyer. It hugely depends on many things, including your own TOS. For the technical solution: if some tool can help, no tool can do everything. Why do you think GAFAMs employ human moderators? – Patrick Mevzek Aug 2 at 16:57
