Social Networking Users Routinely Agree to Arbitrate

Suffolk University Law Professor  Michael Rustad writes here that users of social network sites "around the world are required to agree to predispute mandatory arbitration as a condition of joining social networking communities. Consumers who enter into “clickwrap” or “browsewrap” terms of service agreements waive their right to a jury trial, discovery, and appeal, without reasonable notice that they are waiving these important rights." 

For my views on the enforceability of these and other consumer arbitration clauses, see The Case for Enforcing Adhesive Arbitration Agreements
