Hate to break it to you, but most of the gripes you have here are things
you really *want* to do - they're things that reduce your personal liability
and/or chance of ending up in prison. Just because you seem to be anti-regulation
doesn't rule out the existence of regulations that are actually there to *help*
you run your business.

> Incorporate your business

That's usually a given for *any* business unless you want to be sued to
your skivvies...

> Obtain Liability, Workers Comp, Unemployment, Auto Insurance


> Obtain bandwidth and IP, fill out your ARIN information.

You're gonna need to do that no matter how anti-regulation you are.

> Pay the lawyer to write your “Terms of Service” so that you have at least some chance of surviving the lawsuits

Or you can gamble on the lawsuits you'll get if you have an abusive customer
who doesn't want you to cut them off.

> Implement your CALEA plan and file that paperwork with the FBI so they can find you
> Register with the Copyright office so that you can deal with DMCA notices.
> Establish your copyright policy and procedures.  Have your lawyer review it.
> Make sure you comply with 18 USC 2258A regarding reporting and registration for kiddie porn, train your employees

Again, would you rather follow these requirements, or deal with the
consequences of not following them?  I'd recommend you make sure you
have your safe harbors mapped out.
