Businesses are increasingly defending their clickthrough agreements in court

Like traditional paper contracts, online agreements are subject to the fundamental principles of contract law. In either context, there must be a mutual manifestation of assent to form a contract. With respect to online contracts, courts have routinely recognized that an electronic click of a button or checkbox can sufficiently indicate the acceptance of an agreement. However, the language and layout of the webpage must give the consumer reasonable notice that the click of a button or checkbox will indicate acceptance of the contract.
