Hello Rowan my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you know who the images belong? Has permission been sought to use them?Alex
Indeed. Then in reality if you have been given permission at worst this person can take you to Court. You can say who and when permission was given and it would be up to a Judge to decide whether to believe you or not.
But the upshot is that he would have to take you to Court and in any event if any claim was for £10,000 or less it would be a small claim so you wouldnt need a lawyer.
Yes pre-action says generally it should be 14 days but that does not invalidate any claim. I would just respond and say you were given permission and that you are going to refuse to take him down.
Its a commercial decision for you - you can either take your own photos or call his bluff.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
I agree - I just wouldnt be bullied. Just ignore it. Does that clarify? Alex
Unless the permission was conditional he cant even withdraw it. I assume the permission wasnt. But yes it should be in writing. Alex
Yes in writing and no it doesnt invalidate. It just means there is no claim. He should give you 14 days that is reasonable. Does that clarify? Alex
You could report threats to Police or seek a civil injunction against him if this continues.
