Case 1: I sell a legal product to person A. Much later, person B sues me because the product is no longer legal.

Case 2: Person A entrusts me with his money, under a contract in which I pledge to give it back to him or his heirs on demand. I refuse to give it back.

The parallels are less than striking.
