Here is the latest email from Mr. Riddick:
NOTE:  First contact is always labeled "3rd Notice."

Please be reminded that the most recent discounted settlement offer made to
you, and the other officers and directors of your company, by Imageline,
Inc. expires at 5:30 p.m. (EST) tomorrow afternoon (Friday July 16, 2010).

 Any agreement we reach with you to settle these claims and release you and
your customers from copyright infringement liabilities will obviously be
contingent on our providing you with proof of our exclusive ownership in the
digital clipart illustrations and designs we found you to be infringing.

If you have already decided to reject our offer and prefer for Imageline to
turn this matter over to our outside litigation counsel, please identify the
names and contact information for each officer and director of your
organization, your registered agent, and a licensed attorney who will be
representing you in this serious matter.

Thank you.

Subject: New Judicial Standards for Copyright Infringement - 3rd Notice

Dear Copyright Infringer,

Since we have not received any correspondence from you to the contrary, we
must assume that your use of Imageline's copyright-registered image(s) on
your website, as previously documented and sent you on numerous occasions,
constitutes serious copyright infringement.

While we do not agree with the two recent rulings (see below link) in
Minnesota and Massachusetts that significantly lowered well-reasoned jury
damage awards, we are aware that these rulings will establish rough
guidelines that other federal jurisdictions are likely to follow, or at
least take into consideration.,2817,2366296,00.asp

As you know, Imageline is in the process of filing a federal lawsuit against
you and your organization. We have sent you specific documentation showing
you each of our copyright-registered clipart illustrations and designs you
have infringed. It is also our view that the unlawful display and
distribution of images, which are often copied and infringed again and again
downstream, causes substantially more marketplace damages than the sharing
of songs for personal use. Therefore, we expect for the infringement
damages award in  our cases to be much higher than the two cases referenced
While we believe we will be entitled to substantially more than the
$2,250.00 per independent infringement (3 times the minimum statutory award
of $750.00 per infringement), as well as additional DMCA Section 1202
damages and all attorneys fees, we are willing to accept the amount awarded
in these two highly publicized court cases if you decide to settle with
Imageline before July 16, 2010.
Please also remember that your customers, who downloaded or copied one of
copyright-registered images from your website, are also liable for copyright
infringement and could have additional damage claims against you if you do
not try to resolve this dispute amicably.
Once we turn these claims over to our litigation attorneys these settlement
amounts will go up sharply. As of today, this case has not yet been
Please have your business owner(s) or your attorney contact me directly
prior the end of business on Friday July 16th if you would like to consider
this alternative to a federal copyright infringement lawsuit. If you need
another copy of the documented infringements , please let us know that
request immediately.
Imageline has been actively fighting digital piracy for over fifteen (15+)
years now, and we have a well-deserved reputation of never letting a known
infringement go unresolved.
Please contact me via e-mail and let us know which way wish for us to

Thank you.

You reap what you sew and it appears that Mr. Riddick's seeds have really begun to grow in ernest.
Terry S and Mr. Riddick may indeed find themselves in court or worse.  

Sorry...looks like the article is gone.  Have you seen Mr. Riddick's damage control postings?  "The perfect gentleman?"  On what planet?

Riddick/Imageline Letter Forum / A Clear Message
« on: February 28, 2009, 06:17:15 PM »
From everything I read on this website, the message is quite clear.  Do not purchase professional graphics, photos or clipart.  Do not support “professional” artists of any kind in any way.  If you do, you will be sued.

I have paid hard earned US dollars for every single image on my website.  And along comes the likes of Mr. Riddick.
So again, the message that I get from Getty, MasterFile, Riddick, Jupiter and their ilk is very clear.  Buy professional works of any kind and you will be sued.  

It is sad that the UAW has killed the auto industry.  It is equally sad that Getty, MasterFile, Jupiter, and Riddick are killing the image industry.  There will be thousands of unemployed auto workers and an equal number of unemployed artists.

From this day forward, I will NEVER purchase a professional image of any kind from any source.  Getting back to my website, it is loaded with images that I purchased legally.  This was before the revelation that purchasing professional images will get you sued.  The question that I pose is this.   How do I make my website Riddick-proof, Jupiter-proof, MasterFile-proof, and Getty-proof.  I am fairly certain that removing all images would adversely affect sales.  Income from sales is what my family and these predators are counting on.  Do I just start replacing professional images with home made images?

George P. Riddick III has inflicted a vast amount of misery and suffering among a large group of hard working Internet entrepreneurs.  He has used fear as his weapon of choice against those targets he has deemed to be weak.  Small business owners, non-profit organizations and churches are his favorite prey.  He has even timed his extortion emails to coincide with major holidays to enhance the physiological impact.  I have never in my life, witnessed the level of arrogance and downright evil as that of Mr. Riddick.

Justice will prevail.  Words can not express my relief that the antics of Mr. Riddick have finally been exposed.  I am personally going to make a PayPal contribution to this website.  The economy has hit my business like everyone else so it won’t be much, but it is my humble “thumbs up” to Mr. Chan.

Warm Regards,
Your Friend in the Victim Network

George Riddick III CEO Imageline
This gent is doing the very same thing.  A growing network of Riddick victims are assembling and documenting threats and extortion tactics.  An amazing number of small businesses have already fallen victim and have paid out large "settlements" and even turned over their small businesses to him.
