It has been adopted in 76 countries worldwide, representing about 80 percent of world trade. One of the main problems of legal unification instruments, irrespective of how successful they are, is that the apparent unification achieved by uniform law, is endangered by divergent interpretations and application in the various jurisdictions where the uniform law applies. Where the incorporation of standard terms have been expressly agreed upon by the parties no problem arises, but quite often the incorporation of the standard terms takes place by a mere reference in an oral communication or written communication to the inclusion of such terms.
Common Law Contracts Vs. Under the common law and the UCC, valid formation for a contract requires an offeror, acceptance by an offeree and a benefit received by a promisor or a detriment incurred by a promisee, also known as consideration. However, the UCC treats other contract issues differently.
Application Common law rules apply to contracts involving real estate, services or intangibles. Services include construction work, professional work and personal services.
Real estate includes contracts for the purchase or sale of land. Intangibles include patents, software, copyrights and trademarks. The UCC applies to contracts for the sale of movable goods, whether new or used. Goods include timber, minerals or crops. The UCC typically applies to contracts for the shipment and receipt of goods between merchants.
Mirror Image Rule Although the common law and the UCC have many of the same requirements for formation of a contract, the common law is more rigid regarding the terms of acceptance. The common law applies the mirror image rule, meaning that if the person receiving the offer, referred to as the offeree, changes the terms of an offer in an acceptance, the acceptance is considered a counter offer.
The UCC, however, rejects the mirror image rule.
The UCC allows acceptance along with consistent additional terms. Mailbox Rule The common law mailbox rule applies where parties to a contract communicate from afar.
The rule allows acceptance upon dispatch as long as the offeree conveys his acceptance by the same or faster means used by the person making the offer, referred to as the offerror. The UCC acknowledges the mailbox rule, but relaxes the common law's treatment by requiring that acceptance need only be made in a reasonable manner by a reasonable medium.
Therefore, under the UCC, acceptance may be slower than an offer.Nov 21, · Therefore, please check your email inbox and – as the case may be – your spam folder.
