Liability insurance is a growing issue. The National Writers Union is
offering the insurance for those who must have it, at the same time they
are fighting the growing practice of requiring it. incidentally, the NWU is
a good investment for tech writers, they fight a lot of battles for us and
they also have a job hotline that you can subscribe to. You can find out
about it at nwu.org.
