The Internet - Online Sale Of Software

contracts ucc

Most software comes with so called shrink-wrap licenses which are legal contracts that end with a button that reads "I accept." Consumers must click in order to install the software, thereby agreeing to the contract. States are in process of passing legislation known as Article 2B of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC 2B) making these contracts binding even when they are incomprehensible. UCC 2B may outlaw the right to make back-up copies of software without permission from the manufacturer.
