For those who are interested in this topic, I've written a second blog
on the unintended consequences of the Cyber Resilience Act.
I have also recently come to realize that the CRA needs to understood as
a companion piece to the revised
Product Liability Directive
AIUI the CRA is the legislation that makes the open source community
/responsible /for the CE Mark validation for all of its software, and it
is the PLD that makes the open source community /liable /for any defects.
I cannot stress enough how damaging these soon-to-be laws are to the
future viability of open source as we know it.
