Most Recent Complaint About Getty Images
Hello, my name is Shannon Donadio, I have had my Website PersonalChefShannon.com since 2010, I received a letter today January 30th 2013, and the letter is dated for January 18th 2013. It states that I have taken an image of a Kitten playing with a squirrel and have used it on my website and that I will have to pay Getty Images $965.00 for an image I had no knowledge that could not be used freely.
I did copy this image from Google Images and used it as a miscellaneous image on my website, I called Getty Images and stated that I have changed the image to a different image not from Google and they said I will still have to pay them $965.00 for the use of the image that I was not aware was allowed to be used. they were also very rude to me on the phone.
It is completely ridiculous that this image is $965.00 and they are contacting me now after 2 years. I have changed the image and should not have to pay $965.00. Looking forward to hearing from you If you can assist me with this matter.
