Distributor E&O Insurance

Much like the producer’s E&O insurance, distributor’s Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance indemnifies media distributors from lawsuits that may arise due to the content of the material they are distributing.

Distributor’s E&O insurance provides protection for media distributors (corporations, individuals and partnerships) from lawsuits that allege:

  • Invasion of privacy
  • Plagiarism or pirating of ideas
  • Infringement of copyright
  • Libel or slander
  • Degrading or defamation of products (trade libel)
  • Infringement of trademark, slogan or title

Distributor’s E&O insurance differs slightly from Producer’s E&O in that distributors are insured for a list of titles they are distributing. So, under distributor’s E&O insurance, a distributor is indemnified against lawsuits arising from the content of Movie A and will still be indemnified against lawsuits alleging content errors for Movie B.
