A disaster befalling an iPod usually means having to repurchase content, but a plan from major content provider Disney will cover those lost songs and videos.

The Macsimum News website reported on a forthcoming insurance plan to be offered by the Walt Disney Company to cover the replacement of media contained on an iPod that gets damaged, stolen, or lost.

The site described some of the features of the plan, which they claim come from a “credible source” they plan to reveal this week:

The insurance program provides for either replacement of lost or damaged media, a monetary payment or both.

If the user experiences a computer system crash, drive crash, or suffers from damaged or corrupted files, insurance, previously paid for by the user, would replace or otherwise compensate for the previously downloaded file. The plan would also cover a lost or stolen iPod.


Along with the various features of the insurance plan Disney should make available this week, and briefly touching on the technology solution to manage claims made for coverage, Macsimum covered the human factor: people being assaulted or even killed over their iPods.

Insurance for digital devices like the iPod could be a compelling purchase for family members buying an iPod as a gift. Removing the financial penalty for replacing an iPod and its content looks like a sensible idea.
