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.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
