No, we had only a verbal agreement but I may have text messages discussing the business arrangement
What is it you want to achieve?
I would like to at least get the money I put into the business back of £600, I have bank statements , if they refuse then I want them to stop using my images, if this doesn't happen then I would like to receive additional payment
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation .
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
can you advise at all on my legal standing regarding the usage of my images and if there are any standardised letters I can send regarding my copyright ownership of these?
You retain these unless you give permission to be used. You simply say that they are not entitled to use them as you own the intellectual copyright.
That is it really.
Does that help?
yes thank you
