US citizens: please write a letter to the US Department of State saying you want the proposed Hague Convention (about international recognition of choice-of-court clauses) not to apply to non-negotiated contracts (such as clickwrap contracts).
For more information about the Hague Treaty, and how it could do harm it were applied to these contracts where one party essentially gives the public no choice, see:
Please send your letter to:Mr. Jeffrey Kovara
Assistant Legal Advisor for Private International Law
U.S. Department of State

Suite 203, South Building
Washington, DC 20037-2851
Please send a paper letter--they carry more weight than email. Please email a copy of your text to <email@example.com> so that the activists working on the issue know about your letter.
