What this article focuses on, is insurance. Insurance is important but that isn’t protection against lawsuits, just against you paying for them. Of course, you still have to pay for the insurance. Either way, the best way to avoid lawsuits is to be compliant in the first place. Being compliant ensures you have a defensible situation.

And even if you only know a few things, you can bet that there will be many many MANY more things in violation with your site. The best solution to stopping lawsuits is to become compliant in the first place.
