The good ole "computers as cars" metaphor.  In the UK:
 
1) In order to drive a car, you have to have a license.

2) In order to have the car on the road, you have to have it taxed and 
have a qualified mechanic certify it for basic road worthiness.

Neither of these rules currently apply to computers.  Maybe they should.
