And, more to the point having actually read the post, if you can show that the images were actually supplied by the plaintiff...

These guys are arseholes. they constantly send these letters to our legal team. Normally, they accuse us of using shots THAT WE COMMISSIONED AND OWN USAGE FOR that are then syndicated by the photographer. I have to send copies of our contracts showing we have the rights to use them indefinitely and then they go away.

I also had this with Getty, a student had used an image on our schools website. I protested as much as i could, and they reduced it by 50% but I still ended up paying them 350€

Getty use bots to trawl the net looking for their watermark.

I had a similar thing a few years ago but regarding a domain name. I received an email from a solicitor claiming I was using the name illegally and to transfer it immediately, it was a bit more long winded than that with all sorts of legal jargon (shite). I politely told him to piss off and that I had purchased it legitimately (for 6 euros, didn't mention that) from a bonefide seller. I said he could have it for 70 euros if he wanted it.

Heard nothing back for 2 months then I got another email saying "ok will pay the 70 euros". Obviously some nob trying it on via his lawyer. Wankers.

My previous web designer, who is a complete prat, used loads of stock photos on my site.

I asked him at the time if they were copyrighted, and he said that they were fine to use.

Fast forward 6 years, and had an email from him early this year, saying that the images were in fact subject to copyright, and that He had received threatening letters for their use. According to him it would have been me who was liable for the fine, despite him selecting them and me having nothing to do with the design of the website. Stupid twat then asked me to pay him for the time he spent removing the offending pictures! I ended up taking the site down and redesigning it completely with another company, just to spite him!

He is a wanker. If I used an illegal image for a design for a client, the design is my copyright, I own it as I created it therefore liable for the illegal use of images, not my client unless he specifically wanted the image, was made aware it was naughty and signed to say so. But I just would tell him I'm not doing it anyway because I'd probably still be done anyway as well for knowingly allowing it.

I'll murder that bloke as long as you sign to say it was ok.
