ACCC launches court proceedings against MSY

ACCC seeking injunctions, penalties, costs and corrective notices from major tech reseller

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has launched court proceedings against major tech reseller, MSY Technology for allegedly engaging in false or misleading warranty representations.

According to an ACCC statement, the organisation made false statements about warranties in its pamphlets, notices, price lists and promotional materials as well as in customer receipts.

“The ACCC alleges that by making the representations, MSY and each of its related companies breached sections 52 and 53(g) of the Act,” it said.

The body is throwing the book at the company and is seeking court orders, injuctions, civil penalties, corrective notices, costs and a trade practices compliance program throughout the company.

The company is still operating and opened its latest store in the Fyshwick, ACT, on October 27.

The matter has been filed in the Federal Court Fast Track list in Sydney and will go before an interlocutory hearing on November 16 with Justice Perram.

ARN attempted to contact MSY Technology, but it did not respond to calls for comment at the time of publication.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
