The point is not you can buy software with actual liability.
The point is today non-IT people buy software expecting some liability if things go wrong. So in practice they get swindled by vendors. Often in a huge way (some vendors write huge bills and customers lap them because they expect corresponding huge liabilities)
And liabilities don't have to be astronomic for vendors to behave. Just high enough they take care of bugs (that editors often put way behind marketing useless gimicks)
