    Just take the pictures down and ignore the pricks who sent the letter, they are just trying to find people who get scared easily to try and get money off them. If they just keep sending these letters to more and more people they'll end up getting paid from some % of the people. That's the business model they use.

    The tables have been turned on RightHaven...they are in some pretty serious legal trouble at the moment here in Vegas. A federal judge here in town seriously questioned the validity of their lawsuits and the company was recently ordered to pay penalties and attorneys for a frivolous lawsuit. If things keep up they won't be around for long:

    Fucking companies do not understand that when they publish something on internet from that moment on it belongs to everyone.

    You wish. In the USA at least, full copyright protection applies no matter what method of publication was used!

    In the U.S. to sue someone, you have to file in the county/state where the civil infraction was caused, then you have to use a process server or local law enforcement officer to "SERVE A SUMMONS". That is the que that you are being sued.

    A letter sent to a physical address is just a way of saying.....hey, I got cha!!!

    If a summons has to be issued in the UK to bring a suit, then they are only f-ing with your head with this letter.

    $1 per day? Are lawyers REALLY that greedy?

    Just remove the content, tell them you're sorry, and inform that that you never made more than a buck per day from it.

    WAIT, THE COMPANY THAT SENT YOU THAT LETTER ISN'T APPLE, IS IT?

    Google offers a service to look at d previous version of website.
    So 'no proof' trick is not gonna work.
    Actually nothing is gonna work. They can case against you but can get nothing from you.
    Talk to them, remove the copyrighted material. Thats it. You r on you way then.

    This is the first rule of litigation. You can't sue someone without tons of assets it just doesn't justify the legal fees. 99% sure this letter is just to scare you. Good luck though mate and keep us posted

    If you've already taken the blog down I would just ignore it and don't answer the letter. If you reply to them then they know they've got the right person.

    I bet those fuckers send out about a hundred of them a week, the ones that reply are the ones they'll go after.

    Aha, I've been in this kind of situation too many times. Infact, I was 'sued' by an individual I knew, for taking a domain name they were intending to buy. How petty? I said to the millionaire, yes. Millionaire, that's right. "I'll see you at the lawsuit."

    Next day, I get a cease and desist - Copied and pasted. I reply back, saying I want any communication via Phone or written format. Nothing happens. They made the excuse that they had filed for trademark hours before I took the domain.

    Oh, and did I mention that the domain wasn't mine? And that I'm 15.

    Riiiiiight.
    They'll pay a lawyer, but won't bother to make screen captures, etc.
    You might also want to google "wayback machine"
