We were contacted by a third party with whom we advertise - they advised that they have been contacted by a company called LC Services Inc which is an image library company. I am not disputing that we inadvertently used an image copied from their website (though I have not admitted this to them and our company name is ***** ***** with the image - LC Services have been given our contact details by the third party site who they initially contacted).
Their address is
Their email comes through as LC Services Inc - but at the bottom of their email the details are:
License Compliance Services, 4corners images
P: 0800(###) ###-####I E: *****@******.***
Yes, they have. They advise that the cost of using the image is £150 but I have emailed them under a different name and they have advised that the cost of using the exact same image is £75 per year. I have this in writing from them, relating to the image in question. The £396 they are requesting we pay they advise relates to the average cost of a license plus the cost to chase the infringement. I have repeatedly asked them to break down this cost and they haven't done so - the initial demand was for £326.
Please can you let me know an update?
Yes, they have provided evidence they own the image.
