AGREEMENT. “Agreement “ means the bargain of the parties in fact as found in their language or by implication from other circumstances including course of dealing or usage of trade or course of performance as provided in this code. Whether an agreement has legal consequences is determined by the provisions of this code, if applicable; otherwise by the law of contracts (Section 1-103). UCC 1-201(3). Compare contract. See Note.
Note: In other words, you have formed an agreement in fact and are inextricably linked with the TRADE NAME by course of dealing, usage, trade, and course of performance. The legal consequences of the “marriage” with your straw-man TRADE NAME is spelled out in the code, where applicable; where not applicable, it references Section 1-103, which states that all other forms of law “…shall supplement its provisions.” The UCC is the supreme codified law on the planet. Legal consequences are dictated under the UCC. In law, and the UCC is the supreme law, there are only two kinds of people: debtors and creditors.
