Claiming ignorance ("I didn't know Labrea would crash his PC") will be
tricky as in many courts with a civil suit you have to prove your innocence.
None of this "beyond a reasonable doubt" stuff/etc as with a criminal case.
I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of a fortune 500 companies
lawsuit after all their web servers or whatever got hosed by my machine. Try
to remember here, these attacks are NOT intentional. This is a
Socual/Policy issue, NOT really a technology issue. Anyways I'm done on this
topic for now.
BTW analogies suck. This is nothing like car parking/trespassing.
