About the Book
Covering domestic and international sales and the codes and practices that govern them, this book is ideal as a standalone for teachers of standard sales courses as well as for those who want to cover global issues as they relate to sales transactions.
- This class-tested material first provides background information about UCC Article 2 and the CISG.
- Then it addresses key issues in the order in which a lawyer is likely to encounter them in practice:
o Which law is applicable?
o Has a contract been formed?
o What are the terms of the contract?
o Has the contract been performed?
o If not, what are the available remedies for the injured party?
- Finally, it covers third parties involved in the sales transactions and the law governing their obligations.
- Combines cases and problems so that professors can use a case analysis pedagogy, a problems approach, or a combination of the two.
- Provides explanatory material to ensure that students understand the basic principles before they dive into the cases and problems.
- Presents contemporary cases, closely edited to highlight the point under discussion.
- Includes such cases as Hill v. Gateway (contract formation), Medical Marketing International v. Internazionale Medico Scientifica (warranties under the CISG and confirmation of an arbitral award), MCC-Marble Ceramic Center v. Ceramica Nuova D’Agostino (parol evidence and the CISG), Zabriskie Chevrolet v. Smith (contract performance under the UCC), Delchi Carrier SpA v. Rotorex Corp. (remedies under the CISG), Chatlos Systems v. National Cash Register (calculation of damages under the UCC), Robinson Helicopter Company v. Dana Corporation (availability of tort remedies), and Specht v. Netscape Communications Corp. (contract formation in licensing transaction over the Internet).
- Many problems refer students to international collections of materials on the Internet.
- Provides references to both unrevised and revised UCC Article 1.
