Hi
JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: I used an image for a blog on my charity website a year ago. I have now been contacted by a company called resolve UK picrights that want me to pay 70.00. I admitted that I used the picture and explained I could not pay 70 all in one go and would like to pay something each month. They have refused. Also, I have tried calling them a few times and I can never speak to anyone and I notice they take a week to reply to emails, they never respond in a timely manner. Please can you advise what to do as they have given me until 28th to pay full balance thanks

Customer: no

Hello,

 

If you used their image without permission, that would amount to copyright infringement.

 

You may choose not to pay the £70 if you are unable to do so, it would then depend on them whether or not to take any court proceedings against you.

 

Unlikely they will do so for £70.

 

May I help further?

I am willing to pay but I am on a low income and want to 10.00 a month. They refused and said I must pay the full amount at once. They are an agency acting on behalf of. Should I again offer the instalment? Thanks

You may then simply pay the £10. You cannot be forced to pay it all at once unless ordered by a court.
