You may or may not get indemnification when you buy something, you would have to carefully read your license/bill of sale/warranty to find out if you do.


I have never seen anything other than software providing this indemnification.

That is very black and white


Yep and it's royally fucked up. I expect that law was written in simpler times when there wasn't millions of patents and so many complicated devices. That, or the people who made this law were idiots.
I don't see how you can reasonably expect consumers today to know if a product infringes on a patent. That's just insane.

It is just that fucked up.


Yep. Sorry, I usually come to these issues from a non-US standpoint. I'm used to consumers actually having rights.
