Computer software is unique in that not only are the producers not held liable for defects, but quite often manage to avoid any of the usual "suitability for purpose" requirements - there is a presumption that (for instance) a toaster is supposed to be able to actually toast a piece of bread - and that therefore any toaster that is unable to do so is inherently defective *and it's the vendor's problem to make it right*, whether via replacement, repair, or refund. Quite often, vendors of software manage to disclaim even the requirement that a word processor be able to process text, etc.
