With its decision dated 12 May 1998 – 312 O 85/98 – "Liability
for links" the Landgericht Hamburg [Regional Court of Hamburg]
has found that by setting a hyperlink on a web page, one may be
held liable for the contents of the page to which the link is
directed. This can only be prevented if the owner of the website
explicitly distances itself from this content.
This web site contains links to other pages on the internet. The
operator of this web site emphasizes that neither it nor the
provider has any influence on the layout or content of the
linked pages. Therefore, the operator of this web site distances
itself explicitly from all of the content on pages linked to
this web site. This statement applies to all of the links on the
Satellite-Board and to all content of the pages to which the
banners are linked.
