I'm wondering if anyone has a good primer of the legal issues related to grinding and implants in particular.
From what I gather, putting an implant in someone else, even with consent, might be classed as assault if you're not licensed in some form - but is a piercing license sufficient for more complex devices?
How about selling implants? Is it a simple matter of using lots of disclaimers like @amal does at dangerousthings or for more complex devices is there something more that must be done?
I know that devices for medical use always require regulatory agency approval (FDA in the US, MHRA in the UK - equivalent in other countries) which involves testing for safety and effectiveness but what about devices with purely practical usage and no medical benefits?
Before anyone says it, I know it's a bad idea to take legal advice from a forum like this and would seek proper counsel if I was to start selling anything myself (something I don't intend to do for a long time anyway).
