Declaring their independence of an anachronism, sown in dictum and grown in error, more and more jurisdictions are participating in the movement to expunge the requirement of privity from the law of warranty. A veritable revolution against the artificial strictures of privity of warranty and its unwarranted, and all too often unjust, results has occurred in recent years. The number of jurisdictions engaged in repudiating their allegiance to this unfortunate anachronism is steadily mounting. Pennsylvania seemed to be as active in this revolution as it had been in an earlier Revolution which is regularly celebrated by appropriate ceremonies throughout the Nation, especially as it was the first jurisdiction to adopt the Uniform Commercial Code just a decade ago.
