Looks like I’m about to be sued or maybe not… I need legal advice and quick.
Apparently I used a photo that was copyrighted and under protection in Canada – the rear view mirror one a while back that fronted an August 19, 2017 piece I did.
“Artist Defense” is telling me I owe them $750 for the previous use and if I don’t pay they will sue for up to $150K. Obviously I took the photo down but this really bothers me. I just called them and they will accept $300 flat for the month it has been used (actually only 17 days).
Any lawyers out there who may want to give a little free advice? Obviously I have to worry about this and I have to cut out all previous photos that I or a friend didn’t take specifically … which I have to do tonight.
370+articles. Just another pain in the ass with this blog…
So – to all readers and commenters – do not post any photos on here in the comments section… or videos until I can get this straightened out. Sorry… but has to be done.
