How does an E&O clearance process protect against plagiarism claims?
E&O insurance film | errors and omissions insurance film:
Remy Khouzam (Lawyer): When discussing a project, a lawyer and his client (the producer) will have to look at various things regarding the nature of the project itself; for example:
- Is it an original project?
- Is it a project adapted from previous work?
- Who collaborated on these projects?
The idea is: you can work on these things based on warranties and representations that are in the contract(s) of your various project contributors that will basically represent that their contribution is original and wasn’t taken from a third-party source. So, there’s no consent necessary and they own all the rights to grant them to the producer. So, that’s basically the work that is done and the sort of guarantees you need in order to obtain E&O coverage.
