‘The uncertainty of application of contractual or tortious law against Software’

Law / April 23, 2015 / No Comments /
An argument as to why it is difficult to apply, with any uncertainty, contractual and tortuous principles to issues concerning allegedly defective software.

Introduction
Software License Agreements, within the “Tort of
Negligence”, and Implied and Express Terms
Defective Software and the Economic and Potential
Liabilities
Conclusions
“Computers and IT have become embedded into our daily lives. Incompetence of a system or its failure can lead to adverse effects on people’s lives and this is where software producers have to inadvertently take `responsibility` of the systems they build and the software that operates them. Any economic loss or physical harm cannot be excluded from a contract, unless it is `reasonable` and `rightfully justified`”
