Blake Reid: New Proposal Would Let Companies Further Screw You Over With Terms of Service (VICE)

June 4, 2019

A long line of legal experts say the American Law Institute proposal would make an already huge problem dramatically worse. . . Blake Reid, a professor at the University of Colorado Law School agreed. In an email, he said the updated language would allow companies to force fine-print contracts upon consumers without even giving them a chance to accept or decline them. "This is an effort to further bind people to all the fine print that no one reads, which in turn means that any company you deal with can basically set the terms for your interaction and you may not be able to say anything about it," Reid said.
