Wal-Mart (or any large retailer) will make sure that they have their butts covered 100%. A lawsuit filed between 2 people might result in a settlement in the thousands, maybe, but between a person and a corporation with multi-billion dollar pockets, that same settlement will be in the millions.

Cheaper to put up a standard disclaimer and make sales policies than to face litigation, unfounded or not. And the law is unclear even for us, people who use these things, imagine for a retailer of tens of thousands of items, with varying legalities from one country/state/province to another.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
