A very interesting blog from Olivia Whitcroft –
Whilst the blog concentrates on Technology Contracts, the ‘disconnect’ that she refers to is common in many types of commercial contracts. I have come across contracts for: sales of goods used for the provision of services; a company based (and supplying) in the USA used for a company based (and supplying) in the UK; supply used for distribution arrangements; along with many others.
With the development of the internet, it is very easy to copy and paste terms & conditions from, say, one website to use on another. This can result in the ‘nonsense’ referred to by Olivia.
