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
