§34 of the Electronic Transactions Act deals with the ‘Liability of Intermediaries’. The statutory provisions generally employ a ‘mere conduit’ approach, and do not require intermediaries to actively monitor information in electronic documents. Intermediaries are required to remove documents and cease providing services in relation to documents, where knowledge of liability arises.
