I have an event registration software product.  We want to include a check box that indicates the the purchaser agrees to a set of guidelines.  The text has been approved by the legal crew for standard paper / signature senarios.  Not sure how it applies to the internet though.

Anyone have any advise as to where to get good information?

First, some definitions.  “Expressed consent” is written; “implied consent” is an action other than an expressed consent on the part of a patient that demonstrates consent; while “informed consent” is freely given consent that follows a careful explanation by a caregiver.  The more personal the information, the better it is to have "expressed consent."  The action of clicking an "I agree" button would fall under the "implied consent" definition.

Here's some information on the legalities of it.  http://biz.findlaw.com/business_commercial/legal/nolo/ency/029C847E-2EFC-4913-B6DDC5849ABE81F9.html
