Long and complicated terms of service that users must agree to for most websites and online services would be banned under a new bill introduced in the House.

The Terms-of-Service Labeling, Design, and Readability (or TLDR) Act, introduced Thursday by Democratic Rep. Lori Trahan of Massachusetts, would require all major businesses to create a simple and short summary of their terms of service page, thereby making it easy to comprehend for the average consumer. “TLDR” is online slang for “too long; didn’t read.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The bill would grant the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general the power to fine companies that violate the legislation’s statutes.


Trahan, a member of the House Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce said, “For far too long, blanket terms of service agreements have forced consumers to either ‘agree’ to all of a company’s conditions or lose access to a website or app entirely. No negotiation, no alternative, and no real choice.”

She added, “The potential for abuse is obvious, and some bad actors have chosen to exploit these agreements to expand their control over users’ personal data and shield themselves from liability.”

Senator Bill Cassidy, a Republican from Louisiana said, “Users should not have to comb through pages of legal jargon in a website’s terms of services to know how their data will be used. Requiring companies to provide an easy-to-understand summary of their terms should be mandatory and is long overdue.”

Sen Ben Ray Lujan tweeted Thursday, “.@SenBillCassidy,  @RepLoriTrahan and I want to make complicated terms of service contracts that nobody reads a thing of the past. Companies should be required to make their terms of service contracts more accessible & transparent, giving control back to the consumer.”

Trahan tweeted, “Our bipartisan & bicameral legislation gives power back to consumers by requiring that online companies make their terms of service contracts more accessible, transparent & understandable.”

  1. The fact that a democrat is introducing it is a problem. They have voted for every destructive bill 100% for the last year. None of them have stood up and said no, so do not trust their motives on anything. This may sound crazy, but unity is not going to happen until the Dems put a stop to Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and all of the other Marxists and Communists. They need to prove that they can be sensible. I don’t expect them to agree with everything I believe. They just need to act like Americans.
