Leadership. Protection. Endurance.

Delivering Security in a World of Risk

To endure and succeed in today’s increasingly global business, broadcasters must continually keep pace with evolving technology, marketplace demands, competitors, and a changing legal landscape. Complicating the picture further is an expanding litany of media liability exposures Ñ ranging from defamation, invasion of privacy, and emotional distress to copyright infringement, trademark infringement, misappropriation, and advertising errors and omissions any of which can result in a calamitous lawsuitÉfrom any number of sources. Consider the financial impact on your organization if:

  • A public official sued you for false light because of broadcasted hidden camera footage of the official allegedly engaging in the misuse of taxpayer funds.
  • A company sued you for trademark infringement, alleging that your organization had aired a series of programs under a “confusingly similar” name.
  • An employee made an unflattering comment about a person in a radio interview, and that person sued you for defamation and emotional distress.
  • A news broadcast inadvertently included personal information about someone, who then sued you for invasion of privacy.
