5. it is a deterrent, SOS can enforce it. We already have similar law in NC

The vendor runs a big risk if they don't tell.

In NC, vendor learned there was a quality control problem with the memory cards for optical scan.
They learned this in March 2006 just as machines were about to roll.

They reported it to NCSBoE and recalled the cards that had gone out, did testing on replacement cards and sent out new ones.

Thats how it works.

Now, they could be silent on known problems, but given that we'd find out eventually,
they would be wise to avoid the civil and criminal penalties for not telling us.
