What legal responsibility? I hope you have pointed these fine folks to
the appropriate sections of the so-called "License Agreements" (i.e.
"we agree that you will accept these terms, or you won't use the
program"), which specifically shirks all responsibility for any and
all mayhem caused by the program..
They may not have the responsibility of the mayhem that is caused but I
think they can still be held responsible for basic product liability
like "works as advertised". IOW the consumer should be able to expect
that a tire will "work" on his car. Now we all know that some tires will
fail due to problems and generally tire companies will replace the tire
however they are not responsible for the mayhem that may have resulted
(unless some smart lawyer can prove negligence).
