SETEL has argued the case for compensation for economic loss by small business
in a number of submissions to the Federal Government in recent years.

The principle is that where a small businesses suffers financial detriment as a
result of a service provider failing to meet an obligation, the business should
be entitled to full compensation.  Financial detriment includes the incurring
costs that are greater than would otherwise have been incurred by the small
businesses and the foregoing of revenue that would otherwise have been received
by the small businesses.

My point is that any claim may also revenue foregone.
