TIL, turns outs there is such a thing as social media liability insurance. I don't even.
"Media liability insurance [...] protects you for negligence in your own media content and advertising, including websites, blogs and social media. So you can rest easy knowing if that post backfires, any legal fees and compensation costs will be covered.
[...] is designed for the unique needs of media and technology businesses, protecting you for infringement of intellectual property, breach of confidentiality or right to privacy, and breach of comparative advertising regulations."
"Just by using a blog, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube account, your business could face claims for slander, breach of copyright or making false or misleading statements."
"What if a competitor alleges that you make unfair comparisons to their product on your website? Or you accidentally used a stock image without a license? Your business could be required to pay compensation, incurring heavy legal costs along the way."
What I would actually like to see is an insurance that protects me from accidentally stumbling upon kacaps on the internets.
