Topic 1: The Impact of UETA
Week 6 Discussion: Contracts – The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA)
Candie, CARDWARE’s model, advertised a one-of-a-kind black and white llama sweater that had an iPod slot on the inside left panel. The ad was placed online and read as follows:
One-of-a-kind black and white llama sweater as modeled by Candie Cardware. Worn only once in Barcelona’s Fashionista Extravaganza Fashion Show. Includes iPod. $450. Free shipping.

For some reason, the word “slot” that was to follow the word “iPod” was cut off of and did not appear in the ad as Candie had intended. Delilah saw the ad and thought, “wow what a bargain! A one-of-a-kind Candie Cardware sweater and an iPod for $450 is something that cannot be beat.” Delilah immediately emailed her reply to Candie as follows: “What a great buy! I’ll take it. Please make sure the iPod is securely wrapped. Let’s meet so I can give you the amount of purchase in cash.” [Signed Delilah]
Candie replied to Delilah, “I’m sorry there is no iPod with the sweater. It was supposed to be iPod slot.” [Signed Candie]
