I am not sure what country you are in, but if it brings you comfort, I spent about five hours searching court records in the US for evidence of them or their clients ever filing copyright lawsuits and found none.   I am not saying don’t offer to pay something, just that you probably should not do anything out of fear of getting sued in the US.

If they were in the US, I would report them to the state bar for the unauthorized practice of law.  However, I think they are only really in Germany.
Even if I am a lawyer, I am not your lawyer.  Copyright matters can have serious consequences.  If you have assets worth protecting, consult a lawyer who is familiar with copyright law and who can review the facts of your case. If you cannot afford one, call your state or county bar association.

What Copytrack clients are you looking for? There isn't likely to be any lawsuits in Copytrack's name because, as far as I know, they are not copyright holders for any images.  And is there a client list for Copytrack?  Most people will not be able to look very far beside the one or two names that might appear in a letter.

I'm a non-lawyer but not legally ignorant either. Under the 1st Amendment, I have the right to post facts & opinions using rhetorical hyperbole, colloquialisms, metaphors, parody, snark, or epithets. Under Section 230 of CDA, I'm only responsible for posts I write, not what others write.
