Apple Pay, Bitcoin, And Consumers: The Abcs Of Future Public Payments Law, Mark Edwin Burge Jun 2018

Apple Pay, Bitcoin, And Consumers: The Abcs Of Future Public Payments Law, Mark Edwin Burge

Mark Edwin Burge

As technology rolls out ongoing and competing streams of payments innovation, exemplified by Apple Pay (mobile payments) and Bitcoin (cryptocurrency), the law governing these payments appears hopelessly behind the curve. The patchwork of state, federal, and private legal rules seems more worthy of condemnation than emulation. This Article argues, however, that the legal and market developments of the last several decades in payment systems provide compelling evidence of the most realistic and socially beneficial future for payments law. The paradigm of a comprehensive public law regulatory scheme for payment systems, exemplified by Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial …


Purchase Of Consumer Paper And Subjection To Collateral Forces, Benjamin Geva Jun 2017

Purchase Of Consumer Paper And Subjection To Collateral Forces, Benjamin Geva

Benjamin Geva

The purchase of commercial paper issued in return for consumer goods [hereinafter referred to as consumer paper] is a common and wide-spread sales financing practice. Various judicial techniques and legislative schemes have been employed to disqualify purchasers of consumer paper from becoming holders in due course [hereinafter referred to as HDC], thus rendering these purchasers subject to defenses to the instrument based upon consumer dissatisfaction with the goods. Underlying the denial of HDC sttus to purchasers of consumer paper are the following premises: (1) the sale of consumer goods is not a commercial transaction and should not be governed by …


Bitproperty And Commercial Credit, Christopher K. Odinet Dec 2016

Bitproperty And Commercial Credit, Christopher K. Odinet

Christopher K. Odinet

In the past several years the growth of virtual property in today’s economy has been explosive. The everyday use of virtual assets ranging from Twitter and Facebook to YouTube and virtual world accounts is nearly absolute. Indeed, by one account Americans check social media over 17 times per day. Further, a growing number of savvy virtual entrepreneurs are reporting incomes in the six and seven figure range, derived solely from their online businesses. Nevertheless, although the commercial world has come to embrace these newfound markets, commercial law has done a poor job of keeping up. Scholars have argued that laws …

The Hierarchy Of Priority, Paul Wangerin Apr 2016

The Hierarchy Of Priority, Paul Wangerin

Paul Wangerin

The analysis in this article suggests that there is a hierarchy of priorities in Article 9 of the UCC and that this hierarchy is relatively simple to describe. The analysis here describes this hierarchy by engaging in a two-part analysis. Part I suggests that the rules for priorities in Article 9 come out of the interaction of a number of variables, variables that are well-known to everybody who is familiar with Article 9. Part II suggests that the variables described in Part I allow us to put all of the important rules about priorities into a simple chart that shows …


Too Clever By Half: Reflections On Perception, Legitimacy, And Choice Of Law Under Revised Article 1 Of The Uniform Commercial Code, Mark Edwin Burge Jul 2015

Too Clever By Half: Reflections On Perception, Legitimacy, And Choice Of Law Under Revised Article 1 Of The Uniform Commercial Code, Mark Edwin Burge

Mark Edwin Burge

The overwhelmingly successful 2001 rewrite of Article 1 of the Uniform Commercial Code was accompanied by an overwhelming failure: proposed section 1-301 on contractual choice of law. As originally sent to the states, section 1-301 would have allowed non-consumer parties to a contract to select a governing law that bore no relation to their transaction. Proponents justifiably contended that such autonomy was consistent with emerging international norms and with the nature of contracts creating voluntary private obligations. Despite such arguments, the original version of section 1-301 was resoundingly rejected, gaining zero adoptions by the states before its withdrawal in 2008. …

A North Carolina Preview Of The Revised (1990) Article 3 Of The Uniform Commercial Code, Charles C. Lewis Dec 2012

A North Carolina Preview Of The Revised (1990) Article 3 Of The Uniform Commercial Code, Charles C. Lewis

Charles C. Lewis

As its title suggests, this article is intended merely as a preview of revised Article 3. It will begin with some overall comments about revised Article 3, specifically about the extent and significance of the revision. It then will discuss specific examples from revised Article 3 to illustrate how the revision affects present Article 3 and how it furthers the goals of the NCCUSL and the ALI. It will also include references to present North Carolina case law or statutory law that may be affected by the revision. If this preview conveys to the BAR at least a taste of …


The Omnibus Clause Of U.C.C. Section 4-303(1)(D): A Holder's Sword Or A Payor's Shield?, Charles C. Lewis Dec 2012

The Omnibus Clause Of U.C.C. Section 4-303(1)(D): A Holder's Sword Or A Payor's Shield?, Charles C. Lewis

Charles C. Lewis

In the years after the promulgation of the 1952 official text, particularly as the New York Law Revision Commission studied it, and as more and more states either studied the Code for enactment or actually enacted it during the late 1950's and early 1960's, law professors, practicing attorneys and bank attorneys commented on each provision of it. Section 4-303(1)(d) and its omnibus clause did not escape this scrutiny. Many of the commentators, however, did no more than describe the purpose of section 4-303's priority rules, point out that section 4-213(1)(c), a remarkably similar section in the Code, did not contain …

An Essay On Horseless Carriages And Paperless Negotiable Instruments: Some Lessons From The Article 8 Revision, James S. Rogers Oct 2011

An Essay On Horseless Carriages And Paperless Negotiable Instruments: Some Lessons From The Article 8 Revision, James S. Rogers

James S. Rogers

As practices change, so too must the language and concepts that define and describe them. That is the lesson to be drawn from the past few decades’ work on the commercial law of investment securities. Article 8 is the first article of the Uniform Commercial Code to reach a third generation. There is the original version, the 1978 version, and now the 1994 version. The original version was based on the traditional system in which buyers and sellers effected transfer of securities by physical delivery of certificates. The 1978 version added new provisions dealing with “uncertificated securities.” Then the 1994 …

Sales And Sports Law, Adam Epstein Dec 2007

Sales And Sports Law, Adam Epstein

Adam Epstein

The purpose of this article is to provide insight into the basics of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and explore its application to sports law. Particular focus is on the sale of goods found in the UCC's Article 2. Whether a buyer and seller closes a deal for the sale of helmets, bats, balls, backboards, sports memorabilia, a new artificial surface for the outdoor field or to fulfill an order for a new set of game jerseys, the UCC applies to the sale if the parties to the sales contract failed to otherwise agree upon the specifics.

Money, Money Everywhere But Not A Drop To Secure: A Proposal For Amending The Perfection Rules For Security Interests In Money And Deposit Accounts, Brian M. Mccall Dec 2006

Money, Money Everywhere But Not A Drop To Secure: A Proposal For Amending The Perfection Rules For Security Interests In Money And Deposit Accounts, Brian M. Mccall

Brian M McCall

It is time that the billions of dollars of money and bank account balances held by debtors be made available as security in a manner that is commercially practical. The rules governing the perfection of security interests in money and deposit accounts need to be reformed to allow perfection by filing. This article builds a case for the proposed revisions by addressing the vexing question “what is money.” A brief history, especially drawing upon the history of the UCC, of answers to this question is presented. Various policy rationales are explored including an examination of the different forms of payment …
