Contract Law on How to Create Electronic Signatures and Contracts
Charles Martin was frustrated with one-sided and confusing contracts offered by companies on websites and in emails. After years of practicing contract law, and of teaching and writing about electronic contracts, he decided to write a book for consumers and businesses about those contracts.
Every1’s Guide shows consumers and businesses how to protect themselves against unfair contract terms, and against non-compliance with contract and legal and regulatory requirements. It has 300 pages of examples of contract law rules in the context of everyday transactions, business deals, and website, email and text message contracts. It describes contracts that have been enforced by courts, contracts that have not been enforced, and the reasons for those decisions. It includes 700 footnotes of sources for these rules that are available for further research.
Every1's Guide includes sample print and electronic contracts, with hyperlinks between the contract text and the legal rules described in the ebook. It includes examples of consumer, business, and international contract disputes, with internal hyperlinks, and with a description of some practical lessons to be learned from these examples.
Every1’s Guide provides valuable information for consumers, businesses, professionals and students about U.S. contract law rules, including electronic signatures and contracts. It summarizes international commercial contract law rules. It describes the current and emerging law of international electronic contracts and consumer dispute resolution.
Some contracts are negotiable. Many are not. If you are presented with a negotiable contract, Every1's Guide will help you to understand how to negotiate it. If you are presented with a non-negotiable contract, Every1's Guide will show you many of its important terms, and will describe how state, federal and international contract law rules require the presentation, performance and enforcement of contracts to be done fairly and in good faith.
