copyright law?
I have received correspondence from a german law firm indicating Ithat i am using an image on my website that belongs to their client they are asking for 1200euros for compensation and their fees.
The photograper is based in the USA the law firm is in Germany and I am UK based.
I did not know the image used was copyright I employed a web desiger to construct the site I have now removed the image in question and taken the website down until i can verify if any other images are copyright.
What should i do next, i have been advised that they must have a uk law firm to pursue the matter and i should ignore their correspondance.
