The safe harbor rules is a system applicable to the Internet and used to solve the problem of copyright infringement by network service providers.It was first established in the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act and is widely adopted by copyright laws in countries around the world.Our country has provided exemption clauses for network service providers in many laws,and the recently introduced"E-Commerce Law" made detailed provisions for e-commerce platform service providers.These provisions constitute our "safe harbor".Since the safe harbor rules has been transplanted,the Internet environment has undergone tremendous changes.The information technology and technology in the Internet era have continued to change.New types of network service providers have continued to emerge.Some network service providers have also changed from initially providing a single service to having both.The compound function brings new impacts and challenges to the application of the safe harbor rules.Due to the lagging nature of the law,how to explain the legal disputes faced by technological changes under the existing laws often becomes a difficult point for the court in the process of interpretation.In recent years,as the first cases of "network cloud services" and "mini-programs" have been settled in succession,they have also provided a paradigm for safe harbor rules to be used in new types of subjects.In order to make the safe harbor rules more effective in practice,this article conducts research on the latest difficulties and academic disputes that the safe harbor rules face in China.The main contents include:First,clarify the basic connotation of the safe harbor rules.Based on this,starting from the origin and migration of the safe harbor rules,the era background of the relevant rules of the safe harbor rules and the successive transplantation in the European Union and China are discussed,and the logic behind its legislation is discussed.And purpose,and made a general review of the existing provisions of China's safe harbor rules.Secondly,by combining the latest cases to analyze the disputes and focus issues that haven rules face in the application process,the study found that the reasons for the disputes and focus are differences in the classification of network service providers,the cognitive standards of subjective status,and the definition of effective notifications.To arrive at different verdicts.Finally,from the perspective of jurisprudence,the purpose set by the regression system itself is combined with the practical application in practice to put forward suggestions to determine the type of subject,the method and method,determine the effectiveness of the notification of defects,and establish a notification-feedback mechanism.After collecting a series of investigations and researches such as literature review,relevant laws and regulations,and study summary of classic cases,the following conclusions were reached:Although the concept of the safe harbor rules in the system itself is too general and vague,practice has proven that after more than ten years of development,the safe harbor rules are still working well and will constitute indirect infringement on network service providers for a long time in the future.An important criterion.In addition to being an important legal system,the safe harbor rules are also an important channel rules for rights holders to safeguard their rights,to a certain extent,ensuring an effective dialogue between right holders and network service providers.In practice,whether it bears the corresponding responsibilities to the network service provider or protects the corresponding rights and interests of the right holder,it has played an active and effective promotion role.The game between the two behind the theory of balance of interests suppresses the arrogance of the infringer and opens the door for rights holders to protect their rights.On the other hand,it also makes the Internet industry more standardized and orderly in the rapid development.
