Well, as technology attorney Mark Grossman would say, you'd want to be sure you go through a solid website audit.  In his article, "Website Legal Audits," he covers some of the more common snags that can place you at a greater risk for lawsuits.  They include:

• Doing business overseas
• Information accuracy
• Using other people's copyrighted or trademarked materials
• Not having a "web wrap" agreement that clarifies your terms of use.
