The second a media company sets out to acquire or create content, there's a liability risk. These risks grow as companies produce, distribute or otherwise disseminate their work. Moreover, these risks continue to evolve as the media landscape changes—whether from the invention of a new distribution platform or a shift in the regulatory environment. AXIS Media and Entertainment Liability Insurance is designed to help address the ever-changing needs of traditional media companies and non-traditional digital media companies. We also offer protection to companies that may not be in the media business, but that may be involved in the production and dissemination of media, including advertisers. Specialized optional coverages are available to cover the needs of publishers, advertising agencies and more. Policies are written to protect against the wide range of exposures. Should a claim arise, AXIS has the global resources to swiftly move to a satisfactory resolution.
