The author discusses the implications of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit's decision in ProCD, Inc. v. Zeindenberg. As Monroe explains, until this decision, the courts have been reluctant to uphold the legal consequences of shrinkwrap licenses. Monroe provides an analysis of the interplay between contract law and copyright law to provide a thorough understanding of this emerging trend in intellectual property.
