Automatic Renewal State Laws: Updated 2021 Editions

Associate Michael Jaeger updated Thomson Reuters Practical Law’s comprehensive guidance on state automatic renewal laws, focusing on consumer subscription services and negative option offers and outlining the regulatory and legal framework.

Jaeger presents a 50-state survey of all state automatic renewal laws, including information on the types of contracts that are subject to the laws, key compliance requirements, definitions of “clear and conspicuous,” corresponding penalties and any good-faith exemptions.

In the supplement, Jaeger notes differences between federal and state regulation and distinctions in how states regulate automatic renewals. He also shares compliance best practices and discusses litigation and settlements involving automatic renewal laws. Further, Jaeger highlights California because it is the state in which automatic renewal laws have been most heavily litigated.
