Mathias v. America Online, Inc., 2002 Ohio App. LEXIS 876 (Ohio App. 2002).

Factual Background Edit

A pop-up box appeared on the screen of AOL's software. The pop-up box informed users that there were changes to the billing amounts, the availability of service, as well as material changes to the license agreement for users, effective immediately. It required no actions by the user to show acquiescence.[1]

Trial Court Proceedings Edit

The court upheld the usewrap agreement because it was "clear, on its face . . . unambiguous . . . and straightforward."[2]
