With its decision of 12 May 1998 (312 O 85/98 – “Liability for Links”) the Hamburg regional court ruled that by setting links one may be held co-responsible for the contents of the linked page. According to the regional court, this can only be prevented by explicitly distancing oneself from the contents; the owner of explicitly does so with the following statement:

I include links to other websites on this website. I have no influence whatsoever over the contents of the linked websites. I expressly distance myself from all contents of these websites and stress that I am not responsible for the contents. This statement applies to all links existing on my website and to the contents of all pages to which the links lead.
