Clicking "Agree" Without Reading The Fine Print

Clicking "Agree" Without Reading The Fine Print

Kojo explores what civil liberties could be getting lost in the "terms and conditions."

Most tech products and services now require users to sign off on lengthy lists of "terms and conditions." But few of us read through the fine print of these agreements before clicking agree or signing along the dotted line. Now some legal experts and privacy advocates are warning that we could be signing away important civil liberties, such as individual privacy and the right to a trial by jury. Kojo explores how consumers could be losing their legal power in the terms of service.
