"It's an ugly acronym, and a lot of software consumer groups and
legal experts consider it ugly state legislation, too: UCITA stands
for the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, and if the
act is written into law across the nation's states, consumers will
enjoy fewer rights against the companies that sell them software --
including major business enterprise consumers."
"Microsoft is a major force behind the legislation, though some
big companies such as Sun Microsystems oppose it."
"Consumer groups' fear that if only a few states pass the
act, the remainder will rapidly adopt it. A major rallying point is
Maryland, where UCITA legislation could pass by the end of
April, the Times article reports."
