Larry Lessig on Bytes and Bullets. Briefly - if P2P software, PC and hardware suppliers are to be held liable for copyright infringement engaged in by users of their products (as is proposed under pending legislation), are gun manufacturers going to be held liable for the deaths and injuries arising from the use of their products?

Good question but quite an emotive and legally complex one for the US, where the Constitution apparently gaurantees the right to bear arms.
