ALI's Principles: My Recommendation for Software Vendors

I'm recommending to all of my clients that they insert into their operative software license agreements the following or something close to it in the choice of law clause: "This Agreement and all related disputes shall be governed by the laws of _______, without regard to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods or the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Software Contracts ("Principles"). The parties agree that (i) the Principles shall have no application whatsoever to the interpretation or enforcement of this Agreement, and (ii) neither party shall invoke the Principles in whole or in part in any judicial or arbitral proceeding relating to this Agreement."
