Friday, October 1, 2004 - 01:00



In response to the 2003 Amendments to Uniform Commercial Code Article 2-Sales and Article 2A-Leases, LexisNexis Matthew Bender has announced the publication of a new title, Analysis of the 2003 Amendments to Uniform Commercial Code Articles 2 and 2A.

Written by two leading figures in the process to amend Articles 2 and 2A, Henry Deeb Gabriel and William H. Henning, this publication provides comprehensive analysis and insight into changes in the law governing future transactions involving the sale of goods and leases.

In 2003, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) and the American Law Institute (ALI) promulgated amendments to Articles 2 and 2A. For the most part, the amendments update the Articles to accommodate electronic commerce, which is desirable to avoid questions regarding its interrelation with federal law, to reflect developing commercial practices, and to resolve some interpretative difficulties of practical significance.

LexisNexis Matthew Bender brings the expertise and insights of key figures in the process to amend Articles 2 and 2A in a new publication providing analysis of all changes made by the amendments. Significant changes made by the amendments include accommodations for electronic contracting, the creation of new warranties running to remote purchasers, and a radical revision of the "battle-of-the-forms" provision. The full text of both Articles, along with the official comments, are also included in red-lined format, which allows identification of differences between the amended and prior versions.
