I suspect the GP was talking about bugs... If a developer accidentally writes code that allows illegal use, then is the developer negligent? Can the developer prove that exhaustive testing was performed? Are unit tests admissible in a court of law? :)

And proprietary code has no bugs?

Code that has gone through certification testing and is thereafter largely immutable may not be bug free, but it's certainly close enough. The problem is that free and open software is explicitly mutable.
