My User Agreement
Consumers don’t have to settle for aggressively one-sided user agreements proffered on a take it or leave it basis. Finally there’s something ordinary people can do to protect their rights. In just a few simple steps, at myuseragreement.com, consumers can adopt terms and conditions of their own. Using established legal principle, My User Agreement provides an innovative solution to a vexing problem. And when enough people get behind this approach, it will be impossible for companies to ignore. The more people who sign up, the stronger our protections will be. My User Agreement represents a new model for collective action with broad applications. By harnessing the power of the Internet, ordinary people can change the terms of commerce worldwide. The approach we are pioneering has important implications for the labor and environmental movements as well as many other areas.
