Re: Motorsport email demand

Hi Andy, Thank you for such an in-depth lesson, which just sounds so much more complicated than I first suspected and since researched. My gut tells me that it's not a bluff and MS wants something out of this exercise. I suspect that the guy emailing me is probably on some sort of commission. It's a...

Re: Motorsport email demand

Hey Andy, Thanks once again for your quick response. I think both the photographer and MS owns the image? https://www.motorsportimages.com/photos/?search=1014285126 "World Copyright: Steven Tee / LAT Photographic. Ref: 94GER08a."

Re: Motorsport email demand

Re: Motorsport email demand

Andy, you're fantastic and thank you for all the wonderful help - it's much appreciated! :) I've been trying to find the image on their site but no luck yet, so will keep searching then get back to Motorsport with some groundwork. Just to add to the above, on searching, I can't find this image for s...

Re: Motorsport email demand

Hi Andy Many thanks for such a quick response. This is the Motorsport company www.motorsportnetwork.com Having never been through such a situation and never hearing of the term "copyright trolling", I find this all distressing, especially as it was an honest mistake and I've done everything to recti...

Motorsport email demand

My problem Received an email from Motorsport about an "alleged copyright infringement" of their image on my website. As I was totally unaware of this infringement, I apologised and immediately removed the image from my site. A couple of emails back and forth since, and Motorsport is now charging me...
