Disregarding the current legal climate in the US/UK or any country with regard to data security will not make it go away.
I don't see any name calling in my post. The fact is, I find it ignorant, or perhaps naive would be a better word for it, to expect that any piece of software in the league of BES would be bug free. To have that expectation is silly and unrealistic.

Of course, I am not a lawyer, and I do not play one on TV, so perhaps suing someone/some company for an unintended consequence that in reality accomplished no damage, may indeed make sense to some people.
