Quebec court says no to eBay’s online contract: Geist

Quebec court says no to eBay's online contract: Geist

Ruling runs counter to previous judgments upholding eBay's terms that the only jurisdiction a dispute against them can be heard is California.

Few things are more common on the Internet than the lengthy, largely incomprehensible, online contracts that are often buried at the bottom of web pages with a simple link to "terms." These agreements sometimes run dozens of pages if printed out and invariably transfer all responsibility and liability to the user, while selecting a jurisdiction clause that is advantageous to the website and inconvenient to most users.

Consumers agree to these contracts dozens of times each day (sometimes proactively by clicking that they agree and most other times by impliedly agreeing to the terms by using the website), but the enforceability of all the terms within the agreement remains an open question.
