Miscellanea

Fine print, small print, or "mouseprint" is less noticeable print smaller than the more obvious larger print it accompanies that advertises or otherwise describes or partially describes a commercial product or service. The larger print that is used in conjunction with fine print by the merchant often has the effect of deceiving the consumer into believing the offer is more advantageous than it really is, via a legal technicality which requires full disclosure of all terms or conditions, but does not specify the manner of disclosure. There is also strong evidence to suggest that the fine print is not read by the majority of consumers.
