What Happens When You Click “I Agree”?

0


You scroll to the bottom or your page to the signature line and you assume the contract is benign. However, when you sign or you click “I agree”, most of the time you are signing over your legal rights to the corporation, allowing them to set the terms and places for arbitration, and abandoning your privacy. The sad part of this situation is that you are pretty much powerless under current laws and a Supreme Court decision about arbitration.

Fortunately, Theresa Amato of Citizen Works and the Fair Contracts project and other people are fighting back. Now it’s up to you to hear what you can do to regain your rights. Listen and learn.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
