Description A letter from Getty Images was sent to the "Legal Department" of my business demanding a settlement of $875.00 for using an image at my web site that they claim is owned by their firm. I do not have a legal department and the letter was sent to my business but to no one in particular. We get mail and advertisements oftentimes that is addressed to no one in particular and we generally dismiss it. I cannot locate proof anywhere that Getty Images owns the image. The image was placed on my web site by a vendor that prepared our site and located the image at a site for free images. In short I'm not clear that this is a legitimate demand and I was advised to contact your office for assistance. Expected resolution details: Stop the threats and rescind the notice.
