IT is used routinely nowadays in applications such as fly-by-wire aircraft, or computer-controlled administration of drugs in hospitals. What would the legal situation be, if bugs in the relevant software caused an aeroplane to fall out of the sky, or a fatal overdose to be administered to a patient? com 41 Law for Computing Students Faulty supplies At the time of writing, there has been no new statute law relating specifically to IT-mediated torts, and, what is quite surprising, no significant cases have come before the courts yet.
But, with computer systems, the two sides may well have conflicting assumptions about what is saleable. Consider Micron Computer Systems Ltd v. Wang (UK) Ltd (1990). Micron claimed that the system it had bought from Wang was faulty, because it did not provide transaction logging. Wang responded that transaction logging was not part of the design specs of that system. On this aspect of the case, the judge sided with Wang and said that if Micron had needed transaction logging it should have made that clear.
To date, the legal issue is open: it simply is not settled which side of the goods/service boundary software falls, despite the potential importance of the issue for suppliers. There are classic cases which illustrate how thin this boundary is. A dentist who makes a set of false teeth draws on a great deal of professional skill, and must tailor the work closely to the individual client’s needs: but it is settled law that false teeth are goods, not a service. Conversely, when someone commissions a portrait from a painter what he gets is a purely physical object, a canvas covered with pigment: but portrait painting is treated by the law as a service rather than supply of goods.
