Website media liability provides coverage for infringement of copyright or trademark, invasion of privacy, libel, slander, plagiarism or negligence arising out of the content on the organization’s website.
A non-profit organization hired a freelance graphic designer to create a series of new logos for a number of fundraising events planned later that year. The graphic designer created more than a dozen options to choose from and the marketing manager at the non-profit decided on four. They then uploaded the logos to their website and used them to promote the fundraising events on social media.
A few days after the first fundraising event, the executive director of the association received a cease and desist order from a law firm representing a local company. The company claimed the logos used by the non-profit were identical to their own trademarked logos.

If the non-profit organization had an Internet Media Liability policy in place when they received the cease and desist order, the policy would cover their legal costs in excess of the retention.
