Responses to cybercrime - Debate at HL

Friday 10 October 2008, House of Lords will start the debate again, following their earlier reports. What is interesting is the proposal for software companies to be responsible for insecure code. If companies were responsible like Microsoft, they would be a bit more careful in their release and would save a bit of money to everyone. After all, if you release a toy or a TV which explodes or has default, the manufacturer is liable, at least for one year in the UK; why not software companies?
