I am working on a product for a client that must be valid and fit for purpose.
It's built on a LAMP stack (PHP/Cake), so there's GPL, MIT, PHP, APACHE licenses:
"AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You are solely responsible for determining the appropriateness of using or redistributing the Work and assume any risks associated with Your exercise of permissions under this License.
My rationale that my product is valid and fit for purposes:
- The signed UAT doc proves validity and fitness for purpose.
- The stack is so widely used by developers, industry and end users (netcraft, gartner etc. stats), that there is a consensus that it IS fit for purpose. (ie we can disregard the fitness for purpose statement in the warranty disclaimer to an extent)
Is this a valid point? Can I make claims that my software is fit for purpose?
