Abstract: This paper studies the terms of 28 online auction sites. It uncovers that, in this industry, unfair terms are common. The paper focusses on a small number of clauses but conclusively shows that enforcement in the UK is insufficient. The reasons for this insufficiency are explored and solutions proposed.
