Read the fine print. . . on the shrink wrap!?!

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently enforced the terms of a contract. . .found on the shrinkwrap of roofing shingles.  Per reports,

Specifically, each package wrapper displayed the all-capped word “IMPORTANT” and warned the purchaser in all caps to “READ CAREFULLY BEFORE OPENING [THE] BUNDLE.” The warranty also contained a mandatory arbitration clause, which was similarly printed in capital letters on the outside of every shingle wrapper and specified that any action against Tamko must be arbitrated individually rather than as part of a consolidated or class action.

Lesson: Review the shrink wrap. Read the click contracts on purchases.
