Pay damages, then.



Pay damages because someone else uploaded something by accident and you can't fix it? It doesn't work like that.


It only doesn't work like that in the context of safe harbor laws.

If the safe harbor law protection doesn't apply, and the defendant is responsible for the illegal behavior, the defendant can absolutely be held legally liable and pay the legally-appropriate punishment.


Why should you pay the damages for something that's not on your server?
