how about 4kg of books falling from 40m.

Mind you, the business could also open up an opportunity for a flying pet ambulance :)

IMHO designers need to ensure their new technologies are safe to
everyone if they are used, and should clearly ensure their copter rotors
don't smash anyone's eye out. I don't have too many problems with making
sure they take responsibility for that.

And do you want more of someone creaming off the profits while leaving
the problems for someone else to sort out and pay for?
