Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide corporate and technology counsel with guidance for drafting important and often-disputed terms in clickwrap, browsewrap and hybrid agreements. The panel will discuss clauses that should be included in these online agreements and explain strategies for avoiding enforceability pitfalls and resolving contract disputes.

Description

When purchasing goods or services via the internet, or simply when engaging with websites, consumers enter clickwrap or browsewrap agreements with retailers or service providers indicating that they accept the website’s terms of use. The enforceability of these agreements has been the subject of several recent court cases.

As the legal landscape surrounding online contracts continues to evolve, corporate counsel must understand the latest standards regarding the enforceability of clickwrap and browsewrap contracts and update their agreements accordingly. Care should be taken in drafting and managing provisions affecting contract authentication, mutual assent, notice, indemnification, and unilateral modification. Counsel must also help ensure that website terms and conditions are located in a conspicuous place.

Listen as our panel of attorneys experienced in negotiating clickwrap and browsewrap agreements discusses best practices for drafting and negotiating the agreements. The panel will discuss key clauses that should be included in the contracts and provide strategies for avoiding common pitfalls and resolving contract disputes.
