US v EU (especially UK and France)

Is it significant that the only States that have passed UCITA are the two
wrapped around Washington DC?

There is a significant difference in business to business transaction as both
parties are considered to be "sophisticated" enough to know what they
are doing.

I don't think Ive ever heard of a significant case involving consumers and
EULA's but I'm probably wrong. Even most of the court cases are about
unauthorized copying and seldom about the more esoteric portions of EULS's. The
only one I can actually remember is the recent Autodesk case.

And not even necessarily in the two states that adopted the UCITA. IIRC at least one of them modified the language before it was finally adopted, so you'd have to read the text each one adopted and compare it to the model text to see what's really applicable.
