A friend of mine who I've set up his website for has received a court letter from rbcopyright for a payment of around £900 for an image I inserted on a page of his garden maintenance website.
This was done a around 3 months ago as a quick fix to get his website up and running again after his old webmaster went awol ( another story altogether ) The thing is I didn't copy the image to be a permanent fixture as I copied the image as it was the correct size to fill in the space on one of his pages.
I've since completed 2 other websites and have learned how to use photoshop and re-size the images in the correct way, it's just that I haven't had the time recently to update his whole site as to be fair it needs a good full day spent on it.
I've taken the image in concern of his website, however where do we stand with the payment they are asking for as they've said it's £900/per year so 3 months is £225, also how do I even know if this image has a copyright assigned to it ?
Any help would be much appreciate, as I was just naive on this subject.
Kind Regards Paco
