InfoWorld: Broad-based group forms to fight proposed UCITA

“An alliance of businesses, trade coalitions, and other
organizations mobilized on Friday to fight the Uniform Computer
Information Transactions Act (UCITA), a proposed law that the group
says will give software vendors many powerful — and alarming —
licensing rights.”

“The coalition — dubbed “For a Competitive Information and
Technology Economy,” or 4CITE, announced its formation in Virginia,
the first state to take up UCITA.”

We plan to put a mini-coalition in every state that
introduces UCITA
,” said Skip Lockwood of the Digital Future
Coalition, who is 4CITE’s coordinator. “Every member of our group
— except for the Virginia-specific groups [that were part of
Friday’s announcement] — have national presences, and we face
threats in all 50 states.”
