Munger, Tolles & Olson Partner Jonathan Blavin Authors Article on Enforceability of Tech Terms of Service

Munger, Tolles & Olson partner Jonathan Blavin and former associate Roman Leal authored an article titled “9th Circ. Trend Affects Tech Terms Of Service Enforceability,” published by Law360.

The article discusses a recent judicial trend in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit calling into question longstanding precedent surrounding how companies provide notice of revised terms of service and the enforceability of such terms. In addition to discussing current major cases at the heart of the issue, the article also delves into considerations technology companies should keep in mind in light of this trend.
