“Terms and conditions may apply” — Contract Law and the Internet
Wednesday, 11 December 2013 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern
Presenter: Judy G. Russell, CG
Websites have fine print too. And it’s the fine print that answers questions like: Why can I use this newspaper clipping from this service, and not that clipping from that service? What happens if I allow someone else to use my account on that website? If I get into a dispute with a genealogical service provider, can I sue them? This webinar will review the basics of website terms and conditions (“terms of use” or “terms of service”) and what they mean for the genealogist.
