Defamation lawsuit insurance
In light of recent events in Thailand it may be an opportune time for insurance companies to offer an insurance policy to cover criminal defamation lawsuits with up to one billion baht in claims. There should be a lot of takers and they may include those in the media who believe in the freedom of the press. The insurance premium may turn out to be high but one may think of it as the price of freedom and be willing to pay to be free to speak.
