I completly dissagree: what about a medical? He may use any cure?
Regardless if it is applicable under the circumstances of his patient?

This sounds silly to me, especialy if you try to hold the rights of the
seller higher than the rights of that one who feels the need to buy from

I belive that the customers rights are higher to value. And as a
customer never can be able to know everything about everythign which
ever might be necessary to buy once, the seller has to provide the full
warranty. As he is the only one who has the insight to evaluate his
development process and to tests/examine the final products.

This is a matter of humanity that a seller only delievers what does not
hurt the reciever.
