Film E&O Insurance Clearance Procedures for Producers - Part 1 of 3

FILM PRODUCER'S E&O INSURANCE CLEARANCE PROCEDURES

Good film producer's E&O insurance (multimedia E&O) clearance procedures will result in the lowest possible premium and the simplest claims settlement in the event of a loss.


Producers E&O insurance covers: invasion of privacy, infringement of copyright, libel, slander, defamation, plagiarism.

The Clearance Procedures below should not be construed as exhaustive and they do not cover all situations which may arise in any particular circumstance or any particular production.

  1. Applicant and counsel should continually monitor the production, from inception through final cut, with a view to eliminating material which could give rise to a claim.
  2. The script should be read prior to commencement of production to eliminate matter which is defamatory, invades privacy or is otherwise potentially actionable.
  3. Unless the work is an unpublished original not based on any other work, a copyright report must be obtained. Both domestic and foreign copyrights and renewal rights should be checked. If a completed film is being acquired, a similar review should be made of copyright and renewals on any copyrighted underlying property.
  4. If the script is an unpublished original, the origins of the work should be ascertained - basic idea, events and characters. It should be ascertained if submissions of any similar properties have been received by the applicant and, if so, the circumstances as to why the submitting party may not claim theft or infringement should be described in detail.
  5. Prior to final title selection, a Title Report must be obtained.
