This revised handbook for IP practitioners provides an easy-to-use reference for addressing clients’ questions regarding insurance coverage. Lawyers will find information on the policy language carriers have used, how courts have interpreted this language in the most up-to-date cases, and common issues intellectual property practitioners need to be sensitive to in litigating insurance cases so that they are “insurance savvy.”
A valuable checklist highlights:
- The types of intellectual property claims most likely to trigger coverage under pertinent commercial liability policies
- The broad number of participants involved in a dispute whose insurance may be implicated
- Other forms of insurance responsive to intellectual property risks
- Guidance on structure
- Numerous “fact scenarios” are included with applicable case citations, as well as checklists for choosing cyberspace policies and policies covering errors and omissions, directors and officers, commercial general liability, and intellectual property risks.
This Second Edition is expanded to address new policies from innovators like RPX as well as an updated comparison of Media Liability Policies, and Cyber Coverage.
