Transfer of Movable Property under U.S. Law

Discussed from a Functional Perspective

Series:

Martin Lilja

This book discusses legal rules for three functional commercial conflict situations under the laws of the U.S.A., mainly analyzing the U.C.C., the Bankruptcy Code, Common Law and Equity. In this context, the term conflict situation is meant to address a certain type of conflict arising between certain parties – e.g. buyer, seller, creditors of buyer or seller, or other types of third parties, like former title-holders to the goods – having certain colliding interests in the same property. The three conflict situations addressed in this book are the protection of a buyer in the seller’s insolvency, the protection of a seller in the buyer’s insolvency, and the conflict between a person formerly entitled to the goods and a good faith acquirer.
