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.

(I am located in the Netherlands)

  • 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 '19 at 16:57
