John Hart Identifies A Real Concern In The Entertainment Industry

Most if not all entertainment firms need professional liability insurance. Professional liability coverage for the entertainment industry is different than other kinds of industries.

What Kind Of Professional Liability Should You Have?

(This is only a partial list of the types of coverage, your coverage will depend on your individual risk)
• Breach of agreement
• Infringement of copyright, trademark, title or slogan
• Breach of a license to use a third party's intellectual property
• Emotional distress
• Invasion of privacy
• Unfair competition
• Personal injury
• Plus more

Professional Liability Insurance is sometimes called Errors and Omissions (E&O) coverage. Claims come from errors or omissions in the performance of professional services. Companies that perform production services have an exposure to E & O claims. E & O insurance also protects against alleged libel, slander, defamation of character and invasion of privacy. This coverage will usually be required by a distributor prior to release of any theatrical or television production.
