I don’t agree. By holding the producers of God knows what responsible for the abuses of the users/customers we are in effect banning it. And I certainly don’t see it as right to blame someone for something someone else does.
No matter if it’s gun manufacturer’s for murder, jerry can makers for people who stupidly burn themselves, authors for writing books where the hero throws himself off a bridge wearing a yellow raincoat only to have people reenact it in real life, soccer games for riots, caricatures for terrorism etc...
It’s all one giant slippery slope. As I see it people are responsible for their own actions and not what it ‘inspires’ others to do.

We’d be holding them financially liable where/if it could be proved that their product — which is intensely violent and is designed to be viewed intensely — had created a violent outburst in a disturbed person. Sorry, but if there’s that kind of cause and effect, and a strong element of foreseeability — i.e., that disturbed minds could be impacted negatively — the product’s producer should be liable for the results.
