Why terms of use are necessary?

A contract that governs the way in which a party may use property whether it be personal, real, or intellectual property is often called a “terms of use” contract. You may have seen one of these on your favorite website, usually mentioned at the bottom of the page. The normal terms of use contracts define the scope, duration, and agreed usage of the property. For instance, on the website an individual would not be able to, under most terms of use contracts, reuse the information on the website for pecuniary gain. However, most intellectual property is able to be re-produced for purely educational purposes because it is beyond the scope of the agreement, being outside the agreed usage—think, copies produced by an instructor to aid in the giving of a class lesson.

The duration of the contract can also be altered in a different way when compared to most normal contracts. It would be unlikely that an owner of property would always be required to update all users that a condition of the old contract has been changed, requiring the consummation of a new deal. Instead, under a terms of use contract, the new deal is automatically struck allowing the new terms to take immediate affect. Effectively, the duration of the contract becomes active until new terms are established. The terms of use contract, although it has its particular uses, can aid businesses in retaining profits while legally signing away liability.
