This Comment examines the problems involved in applying strict products liability law to computer software. The author addresses two main problems: the intangible nature of a computer program as a product and whether it can actually be considered a product, and whether the sale of a computer program actually constitutes the sale of a service or a product. The author examines the nature of these issues and concludes that the best solution would be to view a computer program as a hybrid transaction involving the sale of both a product and a service, which might allow for recovery based on the dual nature of the program.
