Aflac claims copyright infringement

Aflac claims copyright infringement
Ledger-Enquirer, publication date: 30 November 2005
"Assurant Inc. advertises the slogan 'Our Plans Are Based on Yours' for its health insurance arm Assurant Health. Aflac thinks they've taken that slogan a bit too literally and is suing the company for copyright infringement of insurance policies.


'Aflac has a lot of competitors selling competitive policies and it is open to competition," Harbin said. "But if you look at the policies, the actual policies' language is in large part identical and other parts are substantially similar.'"
