2012 Update on Internet Contract Issues


12:30-1:30 p.m. CST

TexasBarCLE will present a webcast on Internet contract issues led by Partner Peter S. Vogel, Chair of Gardere's Internet, eCommerce, and Technology Industry Team, on Tuesday, Jan. 17 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. CST.

The world has changed with the growth and proliferation of the Internet and as a result all lawyers and clients are now confronted with creating contracts when visiting websites, and purchasing goods and services. The Internet did not exist when many lawyers were law students and this webcast will focus on contractual concerns in Terms of Use. As well the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA) and eSign were established to put a structure in place. Jurisdiction and venue of Internet transactions becomes more complicated and will be discussed in this webcast. The impact of Cloud Computing on clients' businesses will also be presented.

One hour of MCLE credit is being offered. This webcast is also approved for State Bar College Credit and Texas Board of Legal Specialization Credit in Civil Appellate and Civil Trial Law.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
