Media liability insurance

Covers you for negligence in media content and advertising.

Media liability insurance covers you for negligence in media content and advertising, including website, blogs and social media.

Websites, blogs, social media – they're part and parcel of business today. But the sheer proliferation of media means the chance of making a mistake is greater than ever. And if that happens, your business could be liable.

Media liability insurance – sometimes called errors and omissions or E&O for short – protects you for negligence in your own media content and advertising, including websites, blogs and social media. So you can rest easy knowing if that post backfires, any legal fees and compensation costs will be covered.

Our media liability insurance is designed for the unique needs of media and technology businesses, protecting you for infringement of intellectual property, breach of confidentiality or right to privacy, and breach of comparative advertising regulations.

Benefits of cover

We've designed world-class media liability cover, and made it super simple to buy.

Content and social #fails

One rogue tweet or misjudged Instagram post, and your business could face claims of defamation, slander or breach of privacy. Media liability insurance protects you for negligence in all your media content, including websites, blogs and social. So, if a post backfires, you'll know that any legal fees and compensation will be taken care of.

Copyright disputes

We're so used to sharing online that it can be easy to forget that using images or other content without permission could put you in breach of copyright. Media liability insurance is for just those moments, picking up the bill for any compensation and associated legal costs.

Comparative advertising regulations

It's a dog- eat dog world and sometimes you have to take risks to stand out from the competition. But overstep the mark with your advertising and you could be in breach of the comparative advertising regulations, with fines, legal costs and compensation to pay. With media liability insurance, it's covered.
