Discounted Liability Insurance for Bloggers Now Available

Posted on: 27 September 2008

On Sept. 19, the Media Bloggers Association announced the launch of an ambitious program called BlogInsure: “a first of its kind liability insurance program for bloggers which provides coverage for all forms of defamation, invasion of privacy and copyright infringement or similar.” MBA president Robert Cox said that for the vast majority of bloggers, the insurance package will cost $540 per year (after the $25 annual MBA dues.) However, some members (those who do certain kinds of blogging that have historically attracted more legal threats) will probably have to pay higher premiums.
