Biz Law Wehmeyer 1 Exam #2 Chapters 5, 9-12, 19 and pp. 268-375, pp. 492-493 Contracts create legal rights we didn’t have before Ex: McDonald’s – legal right to pay $4.10 for the food you ordered o McDonald’s v. Customer (McDonald’s worker is an agent of McDonald’s) Three Main Elements of a Contract: 1. Mutual Assent: offer acceptance or meeting of the minds o In Marriage, when both parties recognize they are there to get married and want to get married 2. Consideration: each side has to give something or give up something o In a Marriage contract, giving the promise to honor, trust, and care for to the other person and vice versa…giving up some things 3. No Contract Offenses: contracts can’t appear where you don’t really expect them, any reason why the contract should not be a valid agreement o Marriage – “Is there anyone here who thinks these two should not be united?” If they are 12 years old, brother / sister, or already married Online Contracts B2B: Business to business Involves a transaction involving an electronic charge (EDI) o Ex: Wal-Mart’s high tech inventory system where judging by weather, consumers what they need is connected with their suppliers B2C: Business to consumer o Ex: Amazon.com takes order in and they send message electronically to the supplier and then shipment goes to the customer (simply IT, not a “shop”) C2C: Consumer to consumer o Ex: e-Bay, put control in pricing Contract Definitions Bilateral Contract: promises in exchange for another promise; most contracts are bilateral o Ex: McDonald’s – promise to pay and promise for money; employee contracts Unilateral Contract: promise on one side in exchange for an action or act on the other side o Ex: Reward for a lost dog sign put up by your neighbor.

Implied Contracts: o Express: all the terms are specifically communicated by language, written or spoken Ex: Gas station with display cost of gas o Implied: all the terms come from conduct Ex: Going to McDonald’s in Netherlands where there are no words communicated so order plain cheeseburger by conduct / gestures o Most contracts are partially one and partially the other Quasi Contract aka Implied-in-Law Contract: a situation where you don’t really have a contract but you are going into court to pretend that you have a contract; for some reason, there is not an actual contract; one party conferred a benefit on the other o Imply-in-Law contract: imply in law that there is a contract and then its like there is a contract since the beginning When situation does not perfectly fit any of the aforementioned contracts and the
