Clients are increasingly offering goods and services online, which are causing their attorneys to draft contracts which must be “executed” online. A number of recent court cases have dealt with this trend and the enforceability of online agreements.
This webinar will cover the background of these court cases, recent updates on legislation, and best practices for drafting “clickwrap” or “browsewrap” agreements. Specifically, the presentation will focus on provisions affecting contract authentication, mutual assent, notice, indemnification, and unilateral modification. The course will also emphasize the need to ensure that website terms and conditions are posted in a conspicuous place. It will also explain strategies for avoiding enforceability pitfalls and resolving contract disputes. During the webinar, you will learn about:
- How recent court cases and legislation have affected the enforceability of online agreements
- The enforceability risks surrounding clickwrap and browsewrap agreements
- How corporate counsel can effectively mitigate these risks and avoid enforceability pitfalls
- What terms should be included in these agreements that are unique to the online environment
- Best practices for resolving contract disputes
