Product liability: electronic retail marketplaces.

Abstract

Existing law imposes strict liability upon persons who place a defective product on the market, including retailers engaged in the business of distributing goods to the public, for injuries caused by the product. Existing law exempts a manufacturer or seller from liability, except as provided, in any action for injury or death caused by a product, other than an action based on a manufacturing defect or breach of an express warranty, if the product is inherently unsafe and the product is known to be unsafe by the ordinary consumer who consumes the product with the ordinary knowledge common to the community and the product is a common consumer product intended for personal consumption, as specified. This bill would require an electronic retail marketplace, as defined, to be held strictly liable, subject to certain exceptions, for all damages caused by defective products placed into the stream of commerce to the same extent as a retailer.
