Vault Corp. v. Quaid Software Limited
847 F.2d 255 (5th Cir. 1988) - full text opinion
UCITA was controversial from the beginning. A broad-based coalition of interests, including financial institutions and librarians, formed the Americans for Fair Electronic Commerce Transactions (AFFECT) to oppose the adoption of the act. They, along with other lobbyists, were effective. Only two states, Maryland and Virginia, have passed UCITA, and the NCCUSL withdrew active support for the law in August, 2003.
