In 2009, someone saying they were Getty's Images contacted me by phone, saying that I had violated their TradeMark
. My first impression was that is was not really Getty's, so I emailed them. It was! I know the seriousness of TradeMark / CopyRights
. But I did not
do, nor could not do, what they are saying. I found an image on Google Images of a pet
mouse and a telephone, that I put on my website for a Contact Us. They said I had altered
their Pet mouse on a wheel image. I could not do that! I am 74 years old, love my computer things, but I could not have removed the wheel. They are charging me $1286.00. When I explained in 2009, as I have here, they reduced it to $635. and I repeated again my side, did not hear any more until yesterday and they have a lawyer
involved. What can be done for me? I am on social security. But the main thing is I did
not do what they are saying! Thanks!
