    Yeah remove and ignore, the amount of money he'd have to spend in court would not be worth the time.

    Fret not, they don't have any ace up their sleeve against you. They're just trying to earn some quick cash over naive people. Don't be one. :)

    Are you a company then? If not they haven't done any checks at all and sounds a bit fishy to me. Call their bluff and say you removed the image and a third party designer added the image without your knowledge. Once you realised that a copyright infringement had occured the said image was removed.
    I doubt very much if they will continue, they've just seen an easy way to make cash and hold you to ransom.
    Have you checked the company out, google them to see if they do it a lot

    You should had definitely not answered back... Everyone here told you basically "delete and IGNORE".
    Reason is, they now have "Proof" of your guiltiness, in a way.
    Really everything you tell them, just helps them making a case against you. But it is unlikely they would do it, its not really economical.
