In common-law countries there is a legal maxim "de minimis non curat lex" (loosely: "the law will not involve itself in trivia"). So they could sue, but the court would reject it. This makes the morality question irrelevant.

Immediate edit: in the specific case here, where the IT contractor would indemnify the agency, this would be for disputes between the manufacturer and the agency. So the scenario LanX is proposing is that the manufacturer would threaten to sue the agency for the contractor's haircut. Let's not forget that if the contractor has an agreement with the agency, a court would still adjudicate it, and common-law courts don't favour things that would "bring the law into disrepute", which this surely would.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
