Simple resolution. Stop stealing other people's content and you can avoid demands to pay them money. The porn cases usually go for more because most people do want their friends and family to know their viewing habits.See question
I'm a small plumbing business owner (only 2 of us) & my daughter designed our amature business website & used a generic water image on one of the pages. She found the image from some other website, unaware of any copyright infringement (there was ...
The simple way to stop this is to not steal other people's work. I bet you would be upset if you fixed my drain and then I did not pay you. Your best approach would be to call them and try to negotiate something less. Gettting out of it for free says I want the benefit of you work without paying for it. You can hire a lawyer but it will likely cost you more than you can save.See question

A school in Texas contacted me about an image they wanted to use as their mascot. I created a high resolution 300 dpi image for them for $250. The image is almost but not exactly the same as the image on my website. It doesn't have my name on i...
Legal answer - it depends on the exact terms of any oral agreement rewho owns the artwork. Most likely you do.
Business answer - it will cost your business reputation many times that $75 if you sell the image to someone who is going to knock of their logo.
I used a photo i found online for my professional website. I looked to pay for it, but couldn't find a a watermark or "cart" to pay. I just copied and pasted. now, months later, i get a fedex packet from some Canadian group representing the Americ...
This is pretty common. If you ise something without paying, yoi will eventually get caught. The amount they are asking is high and yoi can probably talk them down to $1-2,000. They do not want the expense of the suit and judges will often reign in a copyright holder who they think is making excessive demands. Go see a good copyright attorney ASAP.See question
it's been almost 4 years and they owe me just over 10k
Regardless of whether your agreement is oral or written you should proceed with suit. The longer you wait, the harder it gets to collect. You can get most of the money - up to $10k by going to small claims court. It is cheaper than hiring an attorney. However, an attorney may help move things faster.See question

Alot of the answer will depend on the contract. Who gwts editorial control? If you do, tell them the work is done. If they do, you will probably have to go along unless you can show they have breached the contract. It is time to hire a lawyer.See question
I have an idea that involves printing pictures of graffiti covered buildings on t-shirts for retail sale. I am wondering if I would run into copyright issues through using my images that involve another artists graffiti.
It may be copyright infringement to copy. An interesting question is who is the owner of the copyright? If the t-shirts go huge you will probably find out. Otherwise, the owner of the copyright will probably want to keep quiet, unless he or shee had permission. If you know who it is just get a license.See question

The fact that you all sigbed the lease does not necessarily mean she is breaching a contract with you. You probably want to get any attorney to review the lease. Bit may give you veto power over the new tenant, but it may not. Run ads on your own for a roommate so you have some options.See question
