"The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is running a forum on software warranty issues and UCITA. This is of interest to the free software community because proposed laws, including UCITA, actually require warranties on the software we give away, and this would be a great hardship to free software authors. It's of interest to users of proprietary software because the warranties on software that we pay for are generally considered inadequate. FTC is soliciting written comments by September 11, full details are here."
