English term or phrase: "noncommittal" agreement
Noncommittal agreement secondo voi come si può tradurre? Vi faccio notare che è tra virgolette anche nel testo...Ci sono pochissime occorrenze perfino nlla rete mondiale!... Voi riuscite a farvi un'idea precisa di quanto successo? Grazie, ciao!
"Carlos Slim Helu and his family own the controlling interests in Grupo Carso and wasted no time reducing CompUSA's costs by reorganizing CompUSA and focusing the company on its core products. Slim sold off CompUSA's PC manufacturing plant and its call center. He wanted CompUSA to do more with fewer resources in order to immediately improve the profitability of the firm. A lawsuit was filed by vendors over a noncommittal agreeement. Eventually, it was thrown out in the Texas courts, but differences between doing business in Latin America and the United States emerged. "
Grazie mille! Ciao! :-)

accordo non legalmente sanzionabile
Explanation:
Ciao Luca,
a quanto posso capire si tratta di accordi od impegni "non-vincolanti", nel senso che non sono muniti di quelle garanzie legali di cui una delle parti potrebbe viceversa utilmente giovarsi per imporne all'altra l'esecuzione attraverso l'impianto sanzonatorio del contratto stesso o della legge.
Naturalmente esistono delle sfumature per cui quel NON potrebbe significare "non del tutto" o intendere che l'applicabilità delle sanzioni è problematica per la natura stessa del contratto.

com·mit·tal (k-mtl)
n.

2. (...)
3. The act of pledging oneself to a particular view or position: articulated her strong committal to world peace.

Committal Proceedings
If an injunction order is broken you can ask the court to send your opponent to prison, (committal).
You must show that your opponent has deliberately broken the injunction. The County Court and High Court have powers to either send your opponent to prison for up to 2 years or suspend the sentence as a warning to your opponent that if he/she breaks the injunction order again he/she could be sent to prison.
Or, they can order your opponent to pay a fine.
The injunction order must have been personally served on your opponent before you can apply for committal.
