Esteemed colleagues:

What are the legal liabilities for publishing incorrect documentation?

BACKGROUND: I work on an application that includes its own programming
language, source code, and compiler. Marketing hypes these features as
customization capabilities. However, according to the lead programmer,
the documentation we provide (which I have inherited) is severely
out-of-date and, in many cases, blatantly wrong. I'm not thrilled about
the idea of updating this material, but I want to make management aware
of the situation and associated consequences.

Thanks in advance,

Larry Weber
