    it's the same as with i.e. cars ( it's easier to compare machines with machines). If there is a "known bug" in the car it's the manufactor to blame. If not, it's the driver!

    Same things will appear here.

    Realize it or not, we have a precedent for how to handle robots legally:

    Animals. If you own a dog which was specifically bred a certain way, and that dog attacks someone, whose responsibility is it? Is there a particular reason robots should be handled differently?
