L’applicabilità della Convenzione di Vienna sulla vendita internazionale di beni alle transazioni aventi ad oggetto software: vendita o licenza?

New types of goods became object of the commercial transactions, such as software.

The United Nations Convention on international sale of goods offers one possible solution.
