The World Intermediary Liability Map (WILMap) is an online resource informing the public about evolving Internet regulation shaping Intermediary Liability and Internet users' rights worldwide.
The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, along with an amazing team of contributors, built this organized, searchable compendium of laws and legal resources from countries around the world. It includes case law, statutes, proposed laws, and other materials related to intermediary liability.
You can use the WILMap to learn about intermediary liability regimes worldwide, and to identify places where legal regimes balance—or fail to balance—regulatory goals with freedom of expression and other civil liberties. The Map page provides a visual representation of important developments around the world. The Explore page allows both basic searches of WILMap entries, and Advanced Searches based on considerations such as the type of platform involved or the specific legal obligations considered. Topics pages track specific issues and emerging trends, such as platform monitoring obligations and the "Right to Be Forgotten."
More information about the WILMap and links to other recommended resources are in our FAQ.

The WILMap does not offer legal advice or exhaustively capture all relevant laws. Entries are provided by volunteer contributors, and may contain errors.

About the Center for Internet and Society
The Center for Internet and Society (CIS) is a public interest technology law and policy program at Stanford Law School and a part of Law, Science and Technology Program at Stanford Law School.
CIS brings together scholars, academics, legislators, students, programmers, security researchers, and scientists to study the interaction of new technologies and the law and to examine how the synergy between the two can either promote or harm public goods like free speech, innovation, privacy, public commons, diversity, and scientific inquiry.
CIS strives to improve both technology and law, encouraging decision makers to design both as a means to further democratic values. CIS provides law students and the general public with educational resources and analyses of policy issues arising at the intersection of law, technology and the public interest. CIS also sponsors a range of public events including a speakers series, conferences and workshops. CIS was founded by Lawrence Lessig in 2000.
