The Hamburg Regional Court reached a decision on 12.5.1998 that by setting up a link, owners of websites might be liable for the contents of the linked site. According to the Court, this could only be avoided if an owner expressly dissociated himself from these contents. On our own site we have included links to other sites on the internet and the following applies to all of these:
“We wish to state expressly that we have no influence over the form and contents of the linked sites.
So we hereby expressly dissociate ourselves from all contents of every linked site on this website including all sub-pages. This applies to all links contained in our homepage and to the contents of all pages that can be accessed via links or banners.”
