Janis owns an operating copper mine. She regularly sells the copper from her mine to Travis, who uses the raw materials in his factory. Their sales contracts are covered by:
a. the common law, because they involve real property.|
b. Article 2A of the UCC.|
c. Article 2 of the UCC.|
d. Article 3 of the UCC.|
c. Article 2 of the UCC.
anis and Travis’s sales contracts for the copper from the operating mine would not be covered by Article 2 of the UCC. Article 2 specifically deals with the sale of goods, and the definition of goods in the UCC refers to tangible, movable items.
In the case of a copper mine, the transaction involves the sale of a natural resource rather than a manufactured or movable good. Therefore, their contracts would not fall under Article 2 of the UCC. Instead, transactions involving the sale of minerals or natural resources are typically subject to different legal principles and regulations, often related to real property or natural resources law.
It’s always a good idea to consider the specific nature of the transaction and the type of property involved when determining which legal framework applies.
