TV & Film Producers E&O
 

Television and film productions need errors and omissions (E&O) insurance for a variety of risks. The title of a production could violate a third-party trademark, or an accidental failure to obtain consent or a proper license could spark a lawsuit. Defense costs associated with such lawsuits can be staggering. Chubb has teamed with Walterry Insurance Brokers to offer Chubb’s Multimedia Liability Insurance policy, which addresses these risks and is endorsed by the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers.

TV and Film Producers E&O coverage highlights:

  • Coverage goes beyond specified "named perils" to risks arising out of the core functions of production companies: gathering and disseminating information or entertainment to the public.
  • No clause requiring the insured to settle at the insurer’s request.
  • No exclusion for "internal" copyright disputes brought by employees or freelance writers over "ownership rights."
  • Coverage for the length of the "rights period" needed for distribution.
  • Worldwide coverage.
