1.2 Letter From Getty 04-16-12 Redacted

1.2 Letter From Getty 04-16-12 Redacted

Ratings: (0)|Views: 712|Likes:
This is the response I received from Getty after my initial reply. In this letter it becomes clear that Getty Images is not truly interested in protecting the intellectual property rights of their artist as they claim but are using these settlement demand letters as a business model for profit. In my opinion what Getty is doing is tantamount to legalized extortion by demanding inflated sums of money on images that have been proven to be nonwillful an innocent infringement's and refusing any proof of claim whatsoever that they have rights to collect damages on behalf of of their artists.Getty Images uses fear tactics such as these demand letters which look like legal cases are pending, artificial payment deadlines before escalation occurs and the threat of legal action if payment is not made within 14 days.

While doing all of the above items Getty refuses to provide the proof reasonably requested by letter recipients like myself who were willing to negotiate and reach a reasonable settlement as long as proof of claim was produced.
