Copyright, Trademark, Trade Dress, Slogan, Trade Secrets

Coverage for these types of intellectual property is often overlooked, but is available.  We review  your company’s existing general liability and professional liability insurance policies to identify gaps in coverage that may have been overlooked.  We then coordinate with your insurance providers to expand coverage to suit your exact needs.

Patents

The average patent lawsuit costs $2,000,000 to litigate.  Often firms are forced to give up their rights simply because they lack the funds to conclude the lawsuit.  There are two types of insurance products that help prevent that scenario: defense policies and abatement policies.

Defense policies will protect a firm in the event that they are sued for allegedly violating an existing patent.

Abatement policies provide a firm with funds to initiate a lawsuit against another company who is violating one of their held patents.  In the event that the lawsuit is lost, the firm does not need to repay any money that was spent in the litigation.  In the event that the lawsuit was won and monetary damages awarded to the firm, the firm repays some or all of the money back to the insurance company – keeping any amount they won above that amount.

We at InsuranceForIP.com have access to these types of insurance and are available to discuss the best solution to your firm’s specific situation.
