The Social Network Show welcomes Professor Nancy Kim back for the December 15, 2014 episode.
We have spoken before with Law Professor, Nancy Kim about online contracts and how they can take away our privacy rights and the ability to enact a law suit. On this episode of The Social Network Show, Professor Kim explains why we continue to click “agree”, why we do not dispute the contracts that we clearly do not understand, and why online companies have no incentive to create consumer friendly contracts.
Nancy Kim is a professor of Law at California Western School of Law, Visiting Professor at the Rady School of Management at University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Chair of the Contracts Section of the Association of American Law Schools and a past member of its Executive Committee of the Internet and Computer Law Section. She is also an elected member of the American Law Institute. Professor Kim is the author of Wrap Contracts: Foundations and Ramifications (Oxford University Press, 2013) which focuses on how contracts affect and control online behavior.
Before working in academia, Professor Kim worked for several technology companies and two major law firms. She has published many articles and essays and her name has appeared in the Boston Globe, slate.com, the San Diego Union Tribune, and the Sacramento Bee, just to name a few. She is also a Contributing Editor to the Contracts Law Prof Blog, which is the official blog of the AALS section on Contracts.
