Getty Images False Claims, Scam Artists & Extortionist Scams! Seattle Washington
This company sends a full copyright infringement letter to us stating that we used an image they own or own the rights to without permission or a licenese.
The image in question was a tiny thumbnail image that wasn't even hosted on our website - it was hosted on Facebook and our website has a feed reader from Facebook.
$800 for a photo they claim copyright ownership of is ridiculous. This is clearly just a companies way of scamming people out of money. Extortion is what this is - a modern day form of extorting money from small businesses across this country.
