Media policies originated before World War II.  During this time there was a need for specialized coverage for mass media due to a growing number of defamation claims against newspaper and other print media.   The growth of the media and entertainment industry led demand for a specific policy that would cover risk associated with the gathering, creation, production, and dissemination of mass media.  Creators of media content produce and market countless amounts of works of art and entertainment.

Media Liability is a type of errors and omissions (E&O) liability insurance designed for publishers, broadcasters, and other media-related firms.

Media liability insurance provides protection against the devastating impact of claims and lawsuits arising from any content disseminated or distributed by your Insured  organization. Typical suits covered are allegations of copyright and trademark infringement, advertising injury, libel, slander, defamation of character, misappropriation of ideas, breach of implied contract and invasion of privacy.
