David Schönberger of Web3 Foundation, the company behind polkadot (DOT) and Kusama (KSM) pointed out the pitfalls that may be encountered if the Web3 virtual protocol is managed in similar ways as Web2, highlighting the technical obstacle it may cause to the digital currency system.

Product Culpability Ruling Poses Major Threat For Blockchain – Schönberger

The European Commission had published a regulatory modification to the already existing European Union culpability policy to catch up with the progressive drawbacks in the present world of digitization. Tagged as the latest “Product Liability Directives (PLD),” the union anticipates that it will provide firms with legal assurance to venture into resourceful products. Also, it backs victims of harmful products, inclusive of virtual and remodelled products, to get reasonable compensation.

While the commission emphasized that the modified PLD proposition targets the interest of consumers alongside promoting innovation, the chair legal advisor of Web3 Foundation Daniel Schonberger has contended that the directives promise more danger.

Schönberger explained in a LinkedIn publication, the potential of the PLD being extended to software, highlighting that it makes “developers strictly liable for exploited bugs.”

He opined that the PLD means that victims of cyber fraud and other forms of phishing crimes may be right to take legal actions against the units that play a role in the development of the code they interacted with.

A tough culpability ruling as such always rolls in the favor of the victim that seeks settlement, and influential tech giants also stand a better chance, Schönberger added.

A More Efficient Procedure

The CLO urged that a more practical strategy would be a reclassification of software into diverse units, while PLD is allowed to govern those that stand as nominal products due to their chances of being harmful.

According to Schönberger, compensation rulings should be directed at abnormally unsafe situations that threaten security or health, such as the management of inferior construction and the performance of a powerhouse. The tampering of data is only a bit and it accounts for economic casualties.

Diverse systems across the different administrations have not yet applied any tough compensation policy on data losses that are result of software glitches, so also, the modified PLD proposition relating to software may not be the answer, Schonberger reiterated.

The modified product culpability ruling is made open to welcome comments and opinions of the masses until December 11, 2022.
