Design Rights chooses the work of the designer Dima Yarovinsky to illustrate the value of Legal Design in simplifying law
Special Mention Fuorisalone Award

"One cannot go online today without eventually being asked to accept a set of so-called Terms of Service. These "terms" are actually legal contracts between the user and the online service provider, despite the fact that users never get a chance to negotiate their contents and can even be entirely unaware of their existence. Ticking the box, “I have read and agree to the Terms,” is one of the biggest lies on the web today.

While we all agree to various terms of service on a regular basis, almost no one bothers to read the terms of service we agree to. Whether subscribing to a free or paid service or app, a user must agree to pages of legalese despite the fact that many users ignore them and blindly click “I Agree” without understanding the contractual obligations they’re committing themselves to. The average person reads at a rate of 200 words per minute while a standard “Terms of Service” agreement contains 11,972 words. This means even if a user did attempt to read the terms before agreeing to them, it would take them approximately 60 minutes to read terms of use that contain 11,972 words on average. 

In this project, I took the content of the “terms of service” of the leading online services that we use on a daily basis (Including Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Tinder, etc.) and I printed them on a standard A4 wide scroll with a standard legal contract font size and type. After printing these so-called terms, I hung the scrolls in the gallery at the academy and added the number of words and the time it takes to read each scroll. My main goal was to emphasize how small, helpless, and harmful we are against these giant corporates."
