E&O Liability Protection for Traditional and Nontraditional Media Organizations.

Regardless of a company’s business, if it gathers and disseminates information, then it faces the same litany of media liability exposures as a publisher, broadcasteradvertising agency, video or film producer, or any other media organization.

That’s why we created MediaGuard by Chubb - a broad, flexible errors and omissions (E&O) liability insurance policy that specifically addresses the nature of these risks.

MediaGuard by Chubb highlights:

  • “Occurrence form” covers activities that occur during the policy period (regardless of when claim is first made).
  • “All risk” coverage goes beyond specified “named perils” to include risks arising out of the core functions of advertising, broadcasting, publishing and video and film production: gathering and creating information and communicating it to the public.
  • Built-in coverage for advertising content.
  • Negligent publication coverage for any claim alleging harm to a person or entity that acted or failed to act in reliance upon the information published.
  • Our customer fully controls whether to settle or retract content and can choose between reimbursement of defense costs or duty to defend.
  • No “insured versus insured” exclusion with respect to internal copyright disputes.
  • Punitive damages coverage, where insurable by law.
  • Minimum of 90 days coverage for acquisitions and creations (organizations, covered media) with potential for automatic coverage until the end of the policy period (depending upon actual or projected revenues).
  • Internet Liability clause with automatic coverage for newly created Web sites after the policy incepts.
