Your work involves creating beautiful, functional assets for your clients. But what happens if one of those clients “forgot” to tell you that they didn’t have the copyright for the images they recommended for their display ads? Or that all the text they sent you was lifted from another website?
In these cases, you could find yourself named in a copyright lawsuit. Luckily, media liability insurance can cover the associated costs. Specifically, an Errors & Omissions Insurance policy can cover the costs of attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other legal expenses if someone accuses you of copyright infringement. Because copyright lawsuits often name everyone involved in a project, it’s common for companies to require the designers they contract with to carry their own policy.
The good news is that having active media liability insurance policies can help demonstrate your professionalism to potential clients and make it easier to sign contracts.
