    This paper explores the non-adoption of an innovation via the concept of hybrid genres, that is digital
    genres that emerge from a non-digital material precedent. As instances of innovation these are often
    resisted because they disturb the order of activity and balance of power relations in a given situation,
    or require users to make conceptual and physical adaptation efforts that they consider too costly. The
    authors investigate such issues with a case study of the introduction of a hybrid digital genre, ODR or
    online dispute resolution, in legal practice
