If the program doesn’t work,
then you are entitled to a refund. Every product that
you buy comes with an implied warranty of merchantability.
This is not a promise that the program is perfect. It
is a promise that the program works reasonably well and
that it can actually do the things that the publisher
has said it can do.
Some companies try to tell their
customers that software has no warranties,
that software is like those unsavory-looking used cars
with the big sign that says "AS IS -- THIS VEHICLE
IS SOLD WITH NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND." If you found
one of these notices inside the box after you bought the
program, ignore it. It has no
legal force. It
just keeps the suckers who don’t know any better
from calling. (See Chapter 8, in the section,

Ford Owners’ Web site
In April 1996, Ford
had to recall more than 8.7 million cars and trucks
in the United States and Canada to have the ignition
switches replaced (with potentially up to 26 million
cars and trucks that may need a replacement). The action
cost Ford more than 1.5 billion dollars. In this case
it is not known if their claims were right or not, but
that is not the point. The incident happened in 1995,
but the Flaming
Fords Web site
is still up and running in 2003.
Today more than 20,000 links exist to that particular
Web site. People may stumble over it and decide not

Eight Interesting Lawsuits
government agencies protect and enforce consumer rights?
There are two main government bodies responsible for
protecting consumer rights and enforcing legislation
in this area:
The Consumer Affairs directorate of the Department of
Trade and Industry works to help consumers make informed
purchases and to protect them from unsafe products and
unfair business practices. It does this by enforcing
the law on consumer rights and by providing information.
The directorate works in partnership with government
by advising ministers as well as liaising with other
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) is a government department
with the job of protecting the economic welfare of consumers.
It also enforces consumer legislation by providing consumers
with access to information and ways of getting compensation.
At a regional level, local authorities have Trading
Standards departments which enforce fair trading, consumer
protection and environmental safety legislation. Trading
Standards officers and departments in local government
get support and information from the Institute of Trading
Standards Administration (ITSA). In turn, the ITSA works
closely with the OFT and liaises with central government
on consumer issues.
For further information see the Department
of Trade and Industry , OFT and Trading Standards Central
web sites, or contact your local authority.
