Apple sued for lack of … porn filter

I’m not even going to comment on this item — Apple’s lack of porn filter caused my addiction, lawyer says in product liability suit – ABA Journal — I just found on the ABA Journal website, which in turn gives credit to Above the Law for originally posting it. Here are the first two paragraphs:

A Tennessee lawyer has filed a federal products liability lawsuit against Apple Inc., contending that the company is strictly liable for selling “unreasonably dangerous or defective” electronic devices that lack pornography filters and do not adequately warn consumers about the dangers of surfing the Internet.

Chris Sevier says in the complaint he filed last month in Nashville that he inadvertently made a typographical error when typing Facebook.com into the Mac Book pro he had purchased at an Apple store in Tennessee. As a result, he alleges, he was connected to F**kbook.com, ” an adult site that “appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and led to an unwanted addiction with adverse consequences,” according to the Huffington Post.
