Re: Sued for copyright infringement

OK - that is helpful to know. I was just reading through our thread again and the one you linked in our first conversation.. Just to be clear on my behalf - why is my friend not liable for primary infringement? I understand that if anything she could be liable for secondary infringement based on not...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

OK yes understood. I have been having a look on citizens advice website about copyright infringement and found some helpful parts. In that, if it gets to the stage of counter offer - the way to calculate damages would be account for profits (there were none) or inquiry as to damages (the amount of p...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

Yes thank you I will do that. I will be having a look on the law society website to see if anyone can assist further. I’ve just received an email from caters saying we wouldn’t be able to license direct from the photographer as they grant caters exclusive rights to manage the sale on their behalf an...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

Yes that is correct it was just for decor on her website. I asked the agency for the fee giving them a hypothetical scenario very similar to what her designer should have done in the first instance and this is the quote they came back to me with. I asked about a range of pictures including the one t...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

Thanks!! The agency site doesn’t list the pictures as other agencies do you have to contact them directly. They’ve said that they license images on behalf of photographers and so all their images are Rights Managed and not Royalty Free. They therefore need to charge higher fees for rights managed pi...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

Thanks for the info that’s very helpful. I noticed you said that she should deny primary infringement and can say there may be grounds for secondary infringement (but not admit this).. but you also said she can counter offer the amount she would have had to pay the agency had the designer had gone t...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

Thanks for your detailed reply that is very helpful indeed!! I will have a long read through it and take it from there. Also just a thought - if the picture had the agency watermark on there does this mean that the rights of the picture belong to the agency or can the Photohrapher still Own the copy...

Re: Sued for copyright infringement

Thank you for your very helpful reply! I did come across that thread that you linked above and it was very helpful. As some more information: there is nothing to show that there was dialogue or an agreement between the designer and my friend in regards to obtaining images for the site. Given this, d...

Sued for copyright infringement

Hi If anyone can give some advice that would be great. I’m posting on behalf of a friend who recently received a letter before claim from solicitors claiming that she has infringed their clients copyright by using an image on her website. The letter claims that their client the photographer is the o...
