CHANNEL PARTNERS Automatic-renewal clauses have become a contentious issue in the indirect channel. Many partners are facing new challenges from auto-renewals; increasingly, carriers and service providers are adding new requirements into customer agreements, including auto-renewal provisions that extend the customers contractual obligations for periods of one year or more, with little or no notice. As a result, Ben Bronston Telecom Lawyer (Booth #1325 at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo) is releasing a survey of statutes, legislation and cases for each of the 50 states.
Bronstons new survey is a compilation of publicly available legislation, statutes and cases for each state that breaks down the laws relating to auto-renewal clauses and, in some cases, telecom contracts. Courts and legislatures within each state have dealt with the issue differently so there is no uniform legal precedent regarding the enforceability of automatic renewal clauses. The information is available at www.telecomlawyer.net for $199.99.
