In its judgement of 12 May 1998 - 312 O 85/98 - "Haftung für Links" (Liability for links), the Hamburg district court decided that a provider of internet content may under certain circumstances share responsibility for the content of linked pages.  The court specifies that providers can avoid this liability only by explicitly distancing their organisation from linked content. For all links contained in these pages (and all others), the following shall therefore apply:

We expressly emphasize that we have no influence of any kind on the content and design of linked pages. We therefore distance our organisation explicitly from all content of any linked pages on this homepage and declare that their content is not our own. This declaration applies to all links imbedded in this web site!
