A recent discussion of policy here left me wondering about the legal reasoning behind it.
On any computer-related forum, there will sometimes be questions related to usage that may violate the EULA. The typical response is that a moderator will close the thread, citing potential legal liability.
I've tried to research this online, but so far have found only discussion based on hearsay. Does anyone know if there exists case law (in the various countries) that supports this concern over liability?
(I'm not expecting anyone here to be a lawyer, but maybe someone has been advised by legal counsel.)
