AXIS INSURANCE SERVICES, LLC: E&O Coverage for the Media Industry
Creators of media content produce and market everything from ads, scripted and reality television programs, films and newspapers to Internet articles and blogs. Every time material is produced, media professionals face the risk of liability for claims alleging infringement of intellectual property rights, or violation of certain private and reputational interests. To protect against such liability, professionals in the media industry should carry Media Liability or Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance.
Axis Insurance Services, LLC can provide you with E&O insurance customized to your profession to protect against a wide range of claims with a tailored policy including allegations of defamation; libel; slander; disparagement; invasion of privacy; breach of implied contract arising out of the submission of ideas, copyright infringement; plagiarism, and other unauthorized use of material, names, or trademarks; breach of license agreement; and breach of agreement relating to product placement. Media Liability E&O insurance will provide you with coverage for your legal costs and any settlements or judgments up to the policy’s limits.
Inside A Media Liability Policy
Because of the broad scope of work performed by the various professions that make up the media industry, each policy should be written to address an individual entity’s risk profile. This includes among other issues who will be insured under the policy. For example, a Media Liability policy can be written to protect the company itself, your subsidiaries, employees, directors, and officers. Coverage may also extend to independent contractors performing services on your behalf. What’s important is that your policy is broad enough to cover all of the entities, people, and activities at risk. That’s where our E&O experts at Axis Insurance Services, LLC will serve you well.
