2-312. Warranty of title and against infringement; buyer's obligation against infringement
(1) Subject to
subsection (2) of this section there is in a contract for sale a warranty by
the seller that:
(a) the title
conveyed shall be good, and its transfer rightful; and
(b) the goods
shall be delivered free from any security interest or other lien or encumbrance
of which the buyer at the time of contracting has no knowledge.
(2) A warranty
under subsection (1) of this section will be excluded or modified only by
specific language or by circumstances which give the buyer reason to know that
the person selling does not claim title in himself or that he is purporting to
sell only such right or title as he or a third person may have.
otherwise agreed a seller who is a merchant regularly dealing in goods of the
kind warrants that the goods shall be delivered free of the rightful claim of
any third person by way of infringement or the like but a buyer who furnishes
specifications to the seller must hold the seller harmless against any such
claim which arises out of compliance with the specifications.
