What it covers

  • ‘All risks’ language on a civil liability basis. Cover goes beyond ‘named perils’ by virtue of ‘including, but not limited to’ language. An insured should not be concerned about whether a specific type of media claim is as specifically listed at the point of claim.
  • 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
  • The insured controls whether to retract content. Cover will not be withheld if the failure to retract content is seen to prejudice a more favourable outcome to a claim.
  • ‘Claims Made’ cover with ‘as soon as practicable’ claims reporting
  • No insured vs insured exclusion with respect to internal copyright disputes
  • Broad definition of ‘Insured’ covers contracted stringers, freelancers and photographers when acting under the direction of the Insured Organisation
  • No requirement to reveal confidential sources
  • Subpoena defence costs option for news media organisations
  • Stand-alone insuring clause for production activities, along with built-in merchandising cover
