Controversial code governing the software industry and software consumers’ rights looks like it’s going through:
“One of the key provisions in UCITA is the transformation of what is now a sale such as buying a copy of the Windows 2000 operating-system software, or the e-book version of Stephen King’s latest novel into a lease, with the leasing party (typically the software company) dictating the terms of a nonnegotiable license. Among other consequences, this legalistic sleight-of-hand allows a potential leasor to work around pre-existing consumer-protection laws, since many of those govern buyer-seller transactions.”

Now, UCITA … Later, You Don’t?
