    UCITA still haunts IT

    It's been called a time bomb, code capable of disabling software, and some users fear its use could become pervasive if the controversial software law UCITA succeeds.

    The Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA), due for a renewed push for state-by-state adoption next year, lets vendors include code to trigger a shutdown if, for instance, a user's license has expired.
