Goto next slide#6: Caveat Emptor

What It Means:

"let the buyer beware"

Where It Comes From:

In early Roman law, sales of goods were governed by caveat emptor: buyers were advised to scrutinize the goods before purchase, because sellers had few obligations.

Over time, the imperative of caveat emptor has been softened by warranties, both express and implied.
