Wow...I'm afraid if I don't say "Squeak" a couple times here we might be
considered off-topic.  Squeak Squeak Squeak.

FWIW I pay higher insurance for doing business with customers in
Malaysia but that has nothing to do with chances litigation.  How about
you find the basis of that "math" and report back.  I have no doubt that
chances of being sued are higher in the U.S. but that says nothing of
the chances of being sued friviously.  Finally our country has several
organizations whose sole purpose is tort reform so there is hope. 
Things seem to be getting worse instead of better with U.S. corporations
getting in on the game.  Same problem everywhere I've been though. 
We're just better at it :-)

Anyway I'm happy to hear that you are well insured since I'm starting to
feel that this conversation is personally damaging. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
