As I mentioned a few weeks ago and now recently reported by Concurring Opinions, the American Law Institute recently approved the final version of the Principles of the Law of Software Contracts.

If any particular state adopts these rules, I will probably recommend what commenter Sean Hogle recommended – the addition of yet another disclaimer.

I think I’m going to build that in as an optional clause right now — the Principles aren’t likely to be “adopted” per se by states, they’ll be cited by a court here, a court there.

I thought about that. But by the time some court decides to apply them, it’ll be too late if I haven’t already inserted the language. So I’ve decided to err on the side of caution and start disclaiming it now. šŸ™‚
