    He spoke to his lawyers and they told him that he could be held accountable for it due to the unmoderated nature of Nya enabling the mis-use of the service.

    I'm currently in the process of getting him to transfer the domain(s) back to me, so I can put up a notice.


    how are you going to prevent the same from happening while you run it thus you being accountable? Also, since when can you be held accountable for people mis-using your websites? wouldn't imgur and the like be destroyed by trolls by now?


    I won't be running it. I'll simply be putting up a notice explaining that the service is no more and why.

    oh damn that sucks. I wonder what imgur does to prevent being liable for content like that. Iirc as long as you report that stuff to the authorities when you notice it and remove it you can't be liable.
