Errors & Omissions (E & O) Insurance for Producers offers specialized coverage for a wide variety of media risks against the devastating impact of lawsuits for libel, slander, invasion of privacy, infringement of copyright and other specified torts. If your movie is ready for distribution we will make sure your project is submitted to all eligible, top-rated insurers, in search of the most competitive premiums. This type of insurance is typically required when signing a distribution or broadcast contract. Distributors generally define project specific coverage for features, VOD, internet, dvd, documentaries, Reality TV, TV specials and series. These described policies name the productions specifically. In other words, E&O is insurance for movie distribution whether it is straight to dvd or a theatrical distribution release. Film Emporium also offers blanket E&O coverage for commercial production companies for corporate videos, promos and commercials that do not require title specific coverage.
E&O coverage is also avilable for theatrical plays.
Many producers ask us: "Once I have E&O coverage in place for a movie, will I need to renew that coverage?" In most cases you may not, as an occurrence form policy may be sufficient for the life of the movie. Click here to read "To Err (or Omit) is Human, Which Brings Up E&O"
