[ Thanks to Paul Eggert for this link. ] UCITA is going to be the object of some scrutiny by the American Bar Association, which says unless the law comes under extensive revision the group may vote to oppose it:

"The American Bar Association may vote at its annual meeting in August to oppose UCITA unless the controversial software licensing law is extensively revised.

The ABA's Tort and Insurance Practice Section, a major group within the Washington-based organization, stated in a recent resolution obtained by Computerworld that UCITA should be 'extensively revised' to more adequately reflect current law on licensing intellectual property, 'with due regard for basic rights of consumers and the protection of licensees from unwarranted unilateral actions of the licensor.'"
