I received a letter demanding settlement money for alleged copyright infringement. The firm got my information through a subpoena from my ISP . However , the firm misspelled my name. My first name is correct , but last name consist of the parts. The letter is missing the first part of my name and they added a letter to second part.
Should ignore the letter or do I need be concerned and probably seek legal help ?
Seek legal advice. Do not assume that misspelling your name releases you from legal liability.
All posts are for information purposes only and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship exists until an engagement document is signed by both attorney and client.
Just because your name is misspelled does not relieve you of legal liability.
If you believe you have done something wrong, you may want to discuss a settlement for the alleged copyright infringement. If you do not believe you have done something wrong, then you should tell them that.
In any case, you may want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in more detail. Many lawyers on Avvo offer a free phone consultation.
