Game Developers Insurance- What you need to know and why you may need it

January 12, 2012

Being at the forefront of fun, interactive innovation leaves games developers particularly exposed to new areas of risk. For instance, often games developers’ contracts have ‘milestones’ within them and disputes as to whether these milestones have been met can trigger a breach of contract.


Therefore risks that games developers should consider insuring against include:

– Breach of a written contract
– Infringement of someone else’s intellectual property rights
– Legal action taken against you worldwide, including USA

Any of these areas can be potentially disastrous to a games developer and, given the rise in compensation culture, are increasingly likely to occur.

Professional Indemnity Insurance covers you for liabilities that arise from the professional advice or services your organisation provides – helping to protect your reputation and giving you the peace of mind to concentrate on your business.
