Submission + - BSA worried about proposed EU consumer law (

crimperman writes: The Business Software Alliance is worried about proposals for a new EU consumer rights law. The new law (to be voted on in a couple of weeks) would bring software and digitial content into line with other goods. That is that the consumer would own what they "buy". The BSA is clearly worried about its members revenue and raises a number of arguments against this law including the fact that software companies "could stop offering patches and updates because they are only liable for faults at the time of purchase."
