Intimidating legal letters to threaten suit
Q: Should I just pay Getty Images and get this over with? If you call Getty Images and tell them that you removed the image from your website/server and any other excuses such as; the whole thing happened on accident, you didn’t build the website, you only had it on a webpage that was viewed twice, etc.
Usually this is done when someone purposely steals an image, or they forget to filter a photo by license and grab an image that has a copyright.
Typically the range is between 0 to 0 per image for copyright damages.
