Media Liability


If your company gathers and disseminates information, then you face the same litany of media liability exposures as a publisher, broadcaster, advertising agency, video or film producer, or any other media organization. Chubb’s MediaGuard policy offers professional liability protection for both traditional and non-traditional media organizations.


  • Occurrence form covers activities that occur during the policy period, regardless of when the 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

  • 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

  • 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 websites created following policy inception
