Unisys Corp. (defendant) purchased computer software from Advent Systems Ltd. (Advent) (plaintiff). Unisys sued Advent, alleging breach of contract. An essential issue in the case was whether the Uniform Commercial Code’s (UCC) statute-of-frauds provision applied. The district court held that computer software was not a good within the meaning of the UCC. Because the UCC only applies to the sale of goods, the district court held that the UCC and its statute-of-frauds provision did not apply. Both parties appealed. On appeal, Advent argued that computer software is a good, and, therefore, the transaction was governed by the UCC.
