Are those pages of tiny text almost no one reads really legally binding?

NBC News asks…

“Important rights can’t be canceled by a private party just because they pay the value,” [lawyer Margaret Jane Radin] said. “For example … you can’t sell food with E. coli just because it’s cheaper. … You can’t say we haven’t maintained our airplanes, but our prices are cheaper, so you assume the risk if we fall out of the sky.”

Of course, that’s her argument, laid out in a new book. Opinions vary. But the Supreme Court recently sided with AT&T in a case where the fine print ruled out class-action lawsuits. It’s a good idea to read the terms and assume they’re valid until proven otherwise.
