Federal Court Holds 'Browsewrap' Agreement Unenforceable
by George H. Pike
In a decision that raises questions about the legality of "browsewrap" agreements on ecommerce websites, a California court ruled that a browsewrap agreement in the form of a hyperlink to a separate webpage is not enforceable. The decision in the case of Nguyen vs. Barnes & Noble, Inc. found that even though there was a "conspicuous hyperlink" to the website's terms and conditions in which the website did not require the user to affirmatively agree to the terms, those terms were not enforceable. The case could have significant repercussions for ecommerce websites and highlights the importance of the "clickwrap" agreement, which requires consumers to affirmatively click that they agree before completing an ecommerce transaction.
