>>3755>Can you elaborate on this? Know of any court rulings?
I do have to amend that this probably depends on the jurisdiction. The case I was thinking of has gone 404 and I can't remember if it was actually ruled that way or just my confabulation. I was talking about wild animals here, though, and in general laws usually only apply to humans. This might not universally be the case, of course.
>Who if any here would you blame for Tay acting outside her intended behaviour?
Excellent question, which I don't have a ready answer for. Can the people teaching Tay her habits be seen as highly abstractred programmers?
Similarly to the above examples, let's talk about botnets (not the meme kind, actual ones). Should device owners/administrators/manufacturers be held responsible if servers, PCs or IoT gadgets are illegally used in something like cryptocurrency mining or DDoS attacks?
