CGL Insurer Has No Duty To Defend Against Copyright Claims, Federal Judge Rules
Mealey's (June 22, 2016, 12:02 PM EDT) -- AUSTIN, Texas — A Texas federal judge on June 17 held that a commercial general liability insurer has no duty to defend its insureds against copyright claims because the underlying complaint fails to allege any unauthorized use of an adult entertainment company’s copyrighted advertising materials, slogan or title in the insureds’ advertising (St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co. v. Giganews Inc., et al., No. 15-89, W.D. Texas; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 79535).
