In addition, in recent years, the Federal Trade Commission has challenged automatic extension clauses by deriding the Restore Online Shoppers Confidence Act (“ROSCA”). ROSCA requires that automatic renewal clauses (including “negative option functions”) for goods or services purchased over the Internet be clear and visible, that the company requires the explicit consent of the consumer before reloading its card, and that the company offer simple mechanisms for the consumer to cancel. The Illinois Automatic Contract Renewal Act (815 ILCS 601/1) emphasizes the transparency of contracts, “if this contract is automatically renewed, unless the consumer terminates the clear and striking disclosure contract of the automatic renewal clause in the contract, including the retraction procedure, and informs the customer of the renewal of the contract: “The consumer is informed in writing, in accordance with the automatic renewal clause provided by the automatic renewal clause, no less than 30 days and more than 60 days before the expiry of the withdrawal period,” as is the case for organizations that apply this clause in their contracts. The applicability of the law does not apply to “business-to-business contracts” or “banks, trust companies, savings and credit associations, savings banks or credit unions that hold a license or organization under the laws of a state or the United States, or a foreign bank that owns a branch or agency that is licensed or organized in accordance with the laws of a U.S. state or subsidiary of that company.”  Amazon.com, a U.S. multinational e-commerce company, offers its consumers a variety of online services such as Amazon Prime, Amazon Web Services, Alexa and so on.  Amazon Prime is a paid subscription service that provides consumers with exclusive content and services that will be automatically renewed towards the end of the period.  A similar business model has been adopted by online audio services companies such as SoundCloud and Apple Music.   The parties may renegotiate or amend the legal agreement. This could be done by terminating the current contract and developing a new treaty with the renegotiated commitments.
If a party did not comply with its contractual obligations, the contract would be terminated independently of the clause and, in some cases, compensation and comparisons may be due. It should be noted, however, that some countries have legislation that regulates the duration of the offence under which the contractual relationship can be cancelled.  Finally, contracts may also be terminated due to certain circumstances in areas such as public health.  There are many cases that are decided by courts across the country that deal with the applicability of indecility clauses relating to various commercial transactions. In most cases, particularly in commercial commercial business-to-trade contracts, a strict interpretation must be taken in court where the language of the contract is clear and unambiguous.
