<p>The author discusses the legal issues that are involved in software protection. She discusses legal actions open to users who get a system that does not perform as expected and have exhausted all remedies that do not involve litigation. She examines how the law treats software, covering liability limitations and court actions regarding fraud or misrepresentation as well as injury and damage caused by software. The author discusses the inadequacy of current laws and offers recommendations for remedying the situation.</p>
