Insurer Ordered To Cover Copyright Infringement In Advertising

Despite many lawyers' efforts to convince insurance companies to cover copyright infringement claims, most insurance carriers routinely deny coverage.

It's a frustrating denial for those who pay insurance premiums.

Never fear, though.  An Ohio court has just come to your rescue.  In the case of AMCO Insurance Co., v. Lauren-Spencer, Inc., the court ruled that an insurer has a duty to defend its insured when advertising was involved in the lawsuit that alleged copyright infringement, and the insured's advertising contributed in part to the copyright infringement.

Whew!  That was a mouthful.

In any event, if your company's advertising causes an alleged copyright infringement, your insurance company should cover the claim.
