In her new book, Wrap Contracts: Foundations and Ramifications (Oxford University Press, 2013), California Western School of Law Professor Nancy S. Kim explores non-traditional agreements that look nothing like legal documents. When an Internet user visits a website, checks email, or downloads music, they enter into a digital "wrap contract" that they probably don't know exists.
