Risks for Dutch Web Designers: Examples of Damage
A client from Amsterdam wants you to completely redesign their website. You change the layout, colours and insert images from a supposedly public-domain database. It turns out that the images are copyrighted and you don’t have the licensing rights you need. The site operator sues and demands compensation for damages.
Your client has moved their company and would like to take this opportunity to redesign their website. You updated the site with new and more modern WordPress template, but forgot to insert the new address in the legal notice. The site operator receives a fine for the incorrect information and takes recourse against you for the damages.
You advise an agency from Rotterdam on an upcoming project and recommend a Typo3 template. After the agency has purchased the template, it turns out that it does not meet all their requirements. You are held liable for the costs incurred.
For the relaunch of a website, you are supposed to provide the site operator with layouts and designs. But you are seriously behind with your work. As a result, the site operator misses out on sales because the new site can’t go live. You are held responsible for damages.
