No, the PSF takes care of all the legal liability, as it has done for
all past PyCons.

The only thing you need is one or more volunteers with local
connections willing to put in time.

The PSF will sign the papers, has an existing insurance contract, and
has enough money in the bank to take the financial risk (of course
this also means the PSF board needs to approve the budget).
