[ 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
"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.'"
