Hello everyone,

A few days ago we've received a letter from this, as I now understand, a very popular among blogers firm. Of course, we took down those 4 images that we have used without proper attribution, but they demanded money. The initial amount was $16,480.00, and reduced slightly after the first email.

We do a fair business and never want to do dirty things. But these people are insane to demand such money. So I wanted to know: whether there was someone who actually had to pay them? How about the court? Have someone had to go to court? What I am trying to find out is a possible scenario.

On January 25th, our case will go to the attorneys and my guess they will speak differently. I also have some question I would like to ask in private.

THANKS!!!!!!

I'm not sure what your saying.  But, there no short cut answer.  You have to educate yourself to what's happening and this forum is a good place to start and it has a wealth of information.  My advice to you is not respond to any firther communication.  Don't be so quick to see a lawyer unless you were served with a summons and complaint that was filed in court.

AliAm,

Your posting is extremely vague. I assume your situation is dealing with a Higbee-originated demand letter. But other than the 4 images and $16K, very few understand what you are saying.
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.
