Protect Your Clients—Don’t Overlook IP and Media Liability Insurance 

Are you hearing more about the need for intellectual property (IP) and media liability insurance? Typical commercial insurance programs (even sophisticated ones) do not cover IP or media liability claims. The need for IP liability insurance includes large companies and smaller companies whose IP is their primary asset. Also, patent infringement suits against companies, which are very expensive, continue to rise.

Media liability coverage is becoming more of a focus for many companies, as they are becoming nontraditional publishers because they have websites and engage with social media. Moreover, as companies continue to employ to generate and curate content using artificial intelligence, there will likely be a rise in copyright infringement, defamation, and invasion of privacy claims.
