This chapter deals with remedies for breach of contract to the extent that they have a particular application to international sale of goods agreements. Attention is given to termination for breach and damages. Even here, however, certain aspects (for example, penalty clauses) are left to general works on contract and sale of goods. This chapter also examines clauses in standard form contracts dealing with the quantification of money awards; they commonly depart from the common law and statutory basis for assessing damages. In addition, though they fall outside breach of contract, the chapter also looks to certain settlement clauses, operative in the event of an insolvency or of a circle appearing in the sales string.
